Description

This learning module, designed for Level II radiologists, is created to help radiologists on their sub-specialization path. It is designed to demonstrate the common meniscal pathologies, common injury mechanism and associated findings. Once the module is completed, the trainee should be able to correctly describe a meniscal tear and to assess its stability.

The module contains 5 real anonymised cases selected by the mentor who prepared the content.

This is a CME-accredited activity by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.

How does it work?

The specialised radiologist mentor has carefully prepared a structured reporting template to help you report the cases, formatted in a fun clickable quiz format while you also view the cases in an web-based PACS-viewer on the right.

1. First, you should review the case images.

2. Then, you can begin the reporting template quiz (meanwhile still reviewing the images on the right)

3. After you submit your answers, the correct answers will appear and you will receive a score for your report.

4. Alongside the answers, you will also find helpful comments and learnings that the specialised radiologist mentor has left. There might also be arrows or markings on the images to help you see relevant findings.

5. If you score more than 66%, you have passed the module and can download your CME Certificate. If you did not pass, you can reset the module and try again.

You can save the module whenever you want and come back to it later, giving you flexibility to practice on your own time.
