RADIOLOGY WEBSITES : RADPATH

Few Useful Sites featuring Radiology/Pathology Correlation

1. Aunt Minnie Radiology-Pathology Compendium at http://education.auntminnie.com/AuntMinnie/AMRadPath/QMachine.ASP?UID=AMRP0001 contains educational cases featuring diagnostic imaging workup with pathologic correlation. Cases are grouped by regions and can be accessed after a mandatory registration. Searching the RadPath case repository can be performed using the following descriptors: ACR codes, Modality, Diagnosis and any combination of the above. Besides, a special feature, on "Organ system of week", is also available.

2. MedPix™
at http://rad.usuhs.mil/medpix/medpix.html?mode=default is a radiology database, focusing on important entitles, encountered in Radiology practice. This useful teaching database authored by Smirniotopoulos JG, Professor of Radiology and Neurology Chair, from Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, can be searched by disease location, by organ system, by pathology category, by patient profiles, by image classification and by caption. Besides, there is a WHO 2000 Classification of Brain Tumors is a http://rad.medpix.net/rad/who/who-index.html and AIDS: Imaging the Brain Radiologic Pathologic Correlations at http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/aids/aids_imaging.html.

3.
Radiology/Pathology Correlation Module is featured from the BrighamRAD Teaching Case Database is at http://brighamrad.harvard.edu/ . The material covers a range of clinical entities ranging from Adenocarcinoma of the gallbladder to Wegener's Granulomatosis (RadPath).

4. Radiographic Pathology Index is a specialised section available from X-ray 2000 at http://www.xray2000.co.uk/ . The educative material authored by Nick Oldnall, essentially comprises of common clinical entities, covered briefly with the pathological basis and imaging features. They are covered alphabetically ranging from Achalasia of the Cardia to Xanthogranuloma of bone.

5. Practical Pathology of Chest Disease authored by Martha L. Warnock is accessible at http://pathhsw5m54.ucsf.edu/introduction.html . This educative site focuses on case studies with pathological and radiographic changes of disease. There are special sections on Overview of Pulmonary Pathology, Basic Pulmonary Anatomy, and Radiology-Pathology Correlation in Pulmonary Disease. An Introductory Primer of Pulmonary HRCT: Anatomic with Pathologic Correlation at http://pathhsw5m54.ucsf.edu/ctpath/ctpathcontents.html is an educative website that correlates lung anatomy, pathology, and pathophysiology, with HRCT.

6. Chest Radiology Pathology Image Index
is available at http://myweb.lsbu.ac.uk/~dirt/museum/museum.html . Authored by Ian Maddison, the cases can be searched and viewed as unknowns or by a Case list, in order of Pathology or Cases, in order of Anatomy or by using ACR codes.

is a Student Projects from the McGill Molson Medical Informatics. Available at http://sprojects.mmi.mcgill.ca/radpath/molson3/default2.htm and sourced from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine, the site addresses the anatomic and pathogenetic bases of various radiologic abnormalities seen in chest diseases. The material is organized according to patterns seen on standard chest radiographs, illustrated with cases, all available at http://sprojects.mmi.mcgill.ca/radpath/molson3/radiological_pattern_page.htm . The conditions and patterns covered are numerous ranging from Abscess to Wegener's Granulomatosis.

8. Radiology Pathology of Inhalational Anthrax, featuring its pathogenesis and imaging is available at http://anthrax.radpath.org/ . This site provides information on Anthrax, representing the combined efforts of the Department of Radiologic Pathology at Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, American Registry of Pathology, and INOVA Fairfax Hospital, Fairfax VA. Separate sections on Pathogenesis, Cases and References are available.

9. Correlapaedia, designating "Correlative Encyclopedia of Pediatric Imaging, Surgery, and Pathology' is an educative feature from Virtual Hospital, available at http://www.virtualpediatrichospital.org/providers/CAP/CAPHome.shtml. Authored by Michael P. D'Alessandro, Steven J. Fishman and Deborah E. Schofield, this pediatric radiology resource, focuses on known and unknown cases sorted by Age, Organ System and Clinical Presentation. Besides an exclusive section on Classic Signs is also provided

10. WebPath Mini Tutorials at
http://www-medlib.med.utah.edu/WebPath/TUTORIAL/TUTORIAL.html#1 are an elegant set featuring pathological basis of clinical entities. Some of these common and important topics include Breast Cancer, CNS Degenerative Diseases, Inflammatory Bowel Diseases, Osteoporosis, Prostate Pathology, Renal Cystic Disease, SLE and Tuberculosis. Interestingly, a searchable database is available at http://www-medlib.med.utah.edu/WebPath/SEARCH.html , while a feature on Pediatric-Perinatal Pathology Index is offered at http://www-medlib.med.utah.edu/WebPath/PEDHTML/PEDIDX.html .
