It's that time of the year to look back - and looking back its been a great 12 months for me. Here are some of my highlights:

"xrayoftheweek" - my new effort for 2015

In the last couple of years I've seen a lot of people take on challenges such as "a photo a day for a year" where they attempt to photoblog their life for a year. I was thinking about my blogging and education efforts for 2015 and decided I would try to do something similar to the photo-a-day challenge but using radiology images. However, it will be difficult for me to do this every day, and even with being as organised as I can, I won't be able to keep this up when I am on holiday etc etc. So I'll aim for an image a week. Time will tell if I can succeed. I will try to append the image with some text, describing the modality and the findings. I will try to post images from a variety of modalities and pitch it all levels - from medical students to radiologists, and hopefully also understandable enough for non-medics.

I'll post the images each Wednesday on my website ( and on my various social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, Tsu and Pinterest), and any videos will be on my YouTube channel. I'll use #FOAMRad, #FOAMed and #xrayoftheweek with each post so you can search for older posts.

Please note that I prefer to keep my professional and personal social media channels together, and I post on lots of other topics besides radiology. Therefore if this is likely to upset/offend you, please either mute these hashtags, or unfollow me. I welcome your feedback and I hope I can get to the end of 2015 with the same enthusiasm as I have now!
