1 On line Case Submissions: What are They and How to Submit Thea Moran, MD Asst Professor Louisiana State University New Orleans, Louisiana

2 Why do online case submissions Relatively easy, fast –If you can read and have computer support, you can electronically submit Anybody can submit cases: medical student, resident, fellow or staff Everybody wins –ACGME credits academic effort to both participating staff and residents –Medical students can place on CV –Patients like contributing Caters to a large audience Long leash for all contributors

3 Case in Point (CiP) A section of the ACR website where members of the radiology community can submit interesting cases and readers can review the cases for CME credit. $200 honorarium per case

4 How to submit a case Find an interesting case Go to ACR CiP website and click on “Want to Submit a Case?” File in the blanks CiP staff will you back whether idea was accepted or rejected (usually <1 mo) Case acceptance doesn’t necessarily = case posting

5 What to include in the write up Section/subsection 2-3 “take home points” History/pertinent data 2 copies of each image Findings Questions DDx Discussion References Keywords

21 Miscellaneous Write up should be in Microsoft Word Images need to be in JPEG (800x600 at largest) Attach write up and all images in 1 Formatting preferences: e/qmachine.asp?UID=AMWU0001

22 Thea’s suggestions for case submissions Once you think you have found an interesting case, submit to CiP FIRST –Honorarium If not accepted by CiP, submit to COTD Keep list of cases accepted to CiP and COTD LSUHSC requires signatures from patients/representatives before releasing info for publication

23 Finding “co-contributors” Resident research day Resident’s fair –LSU, Tulane each have fairs Radiology interest group Resident radiology rotations Word of mouth

24 Turning your co-contributors loose Start with COTD case first –Less of a “process” –Quicker turnaround –Gets feet wet Next, CiP –Process is more “involved” –Longer turnaround

25 Keeping your co-contributors on a “long leash” Excellent forum for medical students, residents and fellows to express themselves –Minimal supervision needed –Value received NOT proportionate to attending involvement Gives them a feeling of ownership and responsibility Frees up your own time and energy while still getting academic credit Don’t confuse long leash with no leash –Be available for questions –Check in with them at least once a week –Read what they write
