  • Main pros – Free,  the image of the CT scans are high quality, case studies are downloaded onto your devices so you can study offline. There are discussions of each case where you can check your diagnosis.
  • Main cons – There are only 65 cases to look at, but Dr Cornfeld has created a new installment of the app Radiology 2.0 : Pregnant Appendicitis which is available for the iPad.

This app was created in 2010 by Doctor Daniel Cornfeld, an Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Radiology at Yale University School of Medicine,   it is a teaching tool that includes 65  case studies with an interactive CT scan that you  look at before formulating your diagnosis.  The app has a toggle button on the home page, so that you can choose to see the CT scan with or without the answer (diagnosis) displayed.

The scans are interactive, you can swipe your finger up and down the touch screen to scroll through cross-sectional images.

 

At the right hand corner of each case study CT scan is a link to a page of discussion with useful links to indicate the important points in the CT scan, and illustrative diagrams. The images are of a high quality and the app is very easy to use and navigate once.  One draw back is that the iPad version is 461mb large, so may take a while to download. Dr Cornfeld has also created a new installment of the app Radiology 2.0 : Pregnant Appendicitis which is currently available for the iPad only.
