With its 2010 release, "Radiology 2.0: One Night in the ED," became the first radiology teaching file to simulate reading scans at a PACS workstation. The second installment arrived in 2014 and is now updated!
Volume 2. Pregnant Appendicitis:
This teaching file is designed to introduce you to the appearance of acute abdominal processes on MRI. Cases are taken from my experience performing MRI in pregnant patients. This volume contains 41 cases of common causes of right lower quadrant pain including appendicitis, bowel obstruction, ovarian torsion, renal obstruction, and pyelonephritis.
After viewing these cases you will be comfortable interpreting MRI of the acute abdomen in both pregnant and non pregnant patients.
Each case is presented as a complete MRI scan that you can scroll through as if at a PACS workstation. Multiple sequences in multiple planes are presented for every case. Each exam is discussed in an interactive format. Important findings are highlighted with arrows, circles, and colorful schematics. Multiple examples of each type of pathology are presented so you can learn by repetition. Varied appearances of similar diagnoses are included. The first case in each section has a comprehensive description of the featured disorder. Subsequent cases utilize shorter descriptions and focus on the pertinent findings.
Entire cases are presented as scrollable stacks. Extensive, interactive discussions accompany each case and include labeled images that highlight pathologies and relevant findings. Rather than use static images to teach specific diagnoses, Radiology 2.0 uses stacks of images to actually teach the reader how to approach and interpret scans. This incredible series is available to the medical community at no charge.
The interface incorporates image zoom and pan. In addition, both portrait and landscape orientations are supported.
This intuitive teaching file series is perfect for practicing radiologists, radiology residents, medical students in radiology, and other physicians interested in learning how to interpret images. The extensive content is contained within the app for offline viewing. You can now learn radiology on-the-go and in the palm of your hand, even with a few minutes of spare time throughout the day. Once again, it is completely free and provided as a resource for medical education. No in app purchases. No subscription fees.

Ratings and Reviews
Spot on for learning abdominal MRI!
What an amazing app! It is rare to find a learning resource that enables you to learn experientially, and then guides you to the right answer when you stumble. Pregnant Appendicitis does exactly that for abdominal MRI cases in pregnant women, with a great mix of cases from normal to both complicated and uncomplicated appendicitis to confounding entities like obstruction, torsion, and pyelonephritis. There’s even a case of heterotopic pregnancy! Dr. Cornfeld’s explanations are spot on and extremely helpful at taking your understanding of the case to the next level. His candor is also refreshing as he guides you through the learning process that made him an expert in this area, allowing you to learn from his mistakes rather than making them yourself. (I find that too many other authors present their teachings as gospel without explaining how and why they have arrived at their conclusions, which really mitigates the learning value.) This app is perfect for anyone wanting to hone their MRI skills for acute abdominal pain, from the resident through the junior attending level.
A brilliant app. Highly educational from an imaging and troubleshooting standpoint.
