You want to know how it all came together? Then take a look behind the scenes and find out more in our interview about translating and creating the Brazil module. Because, obviously, radiologists across the globe speak the same language when using technical terms such as “vertebra” or “clavicle” and discussing cases in English. But there are also differences.
The diseases that medical professionals have to deal with on a daily basis vary from country to country. For instance in Germany, so-called civilization diseases such as diabetes mellitus, a metabolic disease, or cardiovascular diseases such as arteriosclerosis, as well as back pain, are part of the daily routine. On the other hand, diseases that are rather rare and sometimes neglected in research and teaching are very present in clinical practice elsewhere. This is true, for example, of tuberculosis and cysticercosis in Brazil. Our Brazil module focuses on such diseases—and does so in two languages: English (🇬🇧) and Portuguese (🇵🇹|🇧🇷).
BerlinCaseViewer at EULAR 2023
In late spring, our team traveled to Milan, Italy, together with Sana Boudabbous, an experienced radiologist from Geneva, Switzerland, to offer a workshop on imaging in axial spondyloarthritis. The occasion? The EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology with over 12,000 attendees in total.
Our workshop took place in a rather small room. But a very interested and inquisitive crowd made this an event to remember. We had our web app in action, and we will be doing so as well at EULAR 2024 when Vienna is calling in mid-June.
London Calling for BerlinCaseViewer
Another city, another course. London. From October 8th to 13th, the MSK 2023 Global Musculoskeletal Societies Joint Meeting took place under the auspices of the International Skeletal Society (ISS). As usual, the MSK Refresher Course was an anchor point of the congress’s program. And the BerlinCaseViewer was part of it.
