On each day of SPR 2018 except Saturday, a web-based “Cases of the Day” online system will show six new unknown cases to challenge your pediatric radiology knowledge. From 8:00 a.m. each day Central Time go to: http://sprcod.org/ from virtually any web connected device including common smartphones. After completing a simple one-time registration process, you will see a link to a new case every day in each of six categories and then submit your answer online. New! In 2018 all correctly diagnosed cases will carry CME credit. Only meeting attendees are eligible to receive CME credit for this activity.
An additional category “Just for fun” is exactly that, and will show images of past SPR events, pediatric radiology personalities or other fun material, but these answers will not be counted for the leaderboard or overall winner.
Hit the books, brush up on your paediatric or pediatric radiology knowledge and get ready for a new online case based educational experience!
