Elsevier launches innovative online radiology board review product
Date:12/1/2010

Philadelphia, PA 1 December, 2010 Elsevier, the leading publisher of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced the availability of Case Reviews Online, an online edition of Case Reviews print series offering radiology professionals self-assessment preparation for board review.

The Case Reviews Online offers radiologists an online solution for their clinical and board preparation needs. Detailed cases, including 4-10 images and multiple choice Q&A organized according to each radiologic subspecialty, include a presentation of the key diagnoses of a particular subspecialty, multiple choice questions and answers, high quality multi-modal images demonstrating the entirety of a particular patient case, and links to other cases and through the differential diagnosis.

"With boards transitioning from an oral format to largely computerized/online format, radiologists need a resource that mimics the format of official exams as well as the everyday clinical experience," said David M. Yousem, MD, MBA, Professor of Radiology, Director of Neuroradiology, Vice Chairman of Program Development, Johns Hopkins Medical Institution, and series editor for Case Reviews. "By providing the trusted content of the print series in an online format, radiologists will have a highly effective way to prepare for radiology and pathology board certification, recertification and practice."

With this online component, radiology professionals are able to:

  • Assess their board exam readiness by taking timed "real" tests or untimed "practice" tests
  • Create customized tests organized by topic or level of difficulty, and randomized tests composed of 10 cases from any volume subscribed to
  • Review and test understanding of each case with multiple-choice questions which include answers outlining right and wrong answer rationale and a differential diagnosis question

"Because the Case Reviews print series is a market leader in print resources for radiology board review for residents, it was a natural progression for us to extend this well-known content to an online resource to better serve our radiology market," said Linda Belfus, Senior Vice President, Editorial for Elsevier.

The Case Review Online series are currently available in emergency radiology, pediatric imaging, vascular and interventional radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, thoracic imaging, head and neck imaging and brain imaging. Elsevier plans to add additional topics to the series over the next year.
