Radiopedia - a Growing Resource
Dr Frank Gaillard is a consultant neuroradiologist at the Royal Melbourne Hospital with interests in brain tumour imaging, multiple sclerosis, neurodegenerative diseases and computer assisted image interpretation. He is the founder and CEO of Radiopaedia.org, the largest collaborative online radiology resource, dedicated to effecting global change through open radiology education and resources. Dr Gaillard works collaboratively with the Neuropsychiatry Unit to review cases and provide teaching.
Dr Gaillard started radiopaedia in 2005, as a way of keeping interesting films while completing his radiology training. Ten years later, in 2015, Radiopaedia attracted 7 million hits a month from 2 million unique users and represented every country in the world. As of January 2015, Radiopaedia had a total of 17,660 cases uploaded to the site from radiologists around the world.
"To be able to give radiologists or doctors in third world nations, who don't have the teaching, or the expertise, or the hardware that we do, the ability to see some of these cases and better treat and diagnose their patients is probably what gives me the greatest sense of satisfaction on a day-to-day basis."
