The American College of Radiology (ACR) and RAD-AID are working to enhance the delivery of ACR Case in Point to RAD-AID’s partnered, resource-poor hospitals in low and middle-income countries. These efforts will strengthen the accessibility and quality of training materials in various medically underserved regions around the world.
ACR Case in Point is an educational platform for radiologists and radiology trainees, providing focused, online-based education for learners to gain experience with imaging findings, differential diagnosis, clinical reasoning, and radiologic problem-solving.
RAD-AID is a nonprofit organization dedicated to implementing sustainable radiology services in underserved, impoverished, and/or resource-limited areas of the world through education, equipment donation, and radiology capacity-building.
“We are thrilled to work with RAD-AID to increase accessibility to radiology education,” says William T. Thorwarth Jr., MD, FACR, CEO of the American College of Radiology. “Our efforts will provide communities across the globe with the resources they need to help improve the quality of patient care.”
“We are grateful for the opportunity to work with ACR on this initiative to integrate RAD-AID’s support for resource-poor radiology institutions with ACR Case in Point’s outstanding educational content, in efforts to increase radiology services for medically underserved populations,” says Dan Mollura, MD, founder and CEO of RAD-AID International.
Distribution of Case in Point educational content will take place through the RAD-AID Learning Center. RAD-AID will curate topics to reflect the areas of learning relevant to local site staff clinical objectives and educational needs.
