Radiopedia - a Growing Resource

Pasted Graphic 3

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."

Neuropsychiatry of Movement Disorders

The unit’s 2013 Neuroimaging Fellow, Dr Brad Hayhow, has published an illustrated summary of how typical movement disorders associated with chorea, dystonia and ataxia are associated with neuropsychiatric illness. This review paper has been published in the new Columbia University movement disorders journal, Tremor.
The paper can be viewed in full here, and contains high-quality illustrations about frontal-subcortical circuits whose disruption can lead to psychiatric illness. One of the images can be found below.
