Case in Point Celebrates 15 Years of Continuing Education

Headshot of Kitt Shaffer, MD, PhD, FACRKitt Shaffer, MD, PhD, FACR, chief editor of the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Case in Point®, contributed this post.

This month, we are proud to celebrate the 15-year anniversary of the American College of Radiology® (ACR®) Case in Point®. Case in Point is an educational resource provided free to ACR members, residents in radiology-related programs and medical students interested in radiology. Users are emailed a new case daily and can also access our online case archive and claim SA-CME credits for their participation.

Since the inception of Case in Point, we have developed a repertoire of almost 4,000 cases in our library, with an increase of over 251% since 2010. We are proud to share that our total number of completions has reached 4,301,139 cases.

Most recently, we have aimed to provide further support to the radiology community as we continue to navigate COVID-19. All submitted COVID-19 cases are now available as public access and are continually updated online.

Additionally, we are moving towards implementing a new online submission process starting Wednesday, July 8. Authors will have the capability to enter case data directly into our system for conversion to a case. Any necessary edits will be made over email prior to case creation.

As we look to the future, we are excited to share our new global health initiative in collaboration with RAD-AID. Together, we are working to enhance the delivery of Case in Point to RAD-AID’s partnered, resource-poor hospitals in low and middle-income countries. Our efforts will strengthen the accessibility and quality of training materials available to medically underserved regions worldwide.

Join us in celebration this month as we reflect on the past 15 years of Case in Point and look to the future of how we will continue to support the education of ACR members, radiology residents and medical students around the globe.
