JCAT and Case of the Quarter
Approved case reports will be published in JCAT. The corresponding PowerPoint presentation will be published on SABI’s website.
Consideration will be given for publication for rare or uncommon disease entities.
- Images are to be presented in the PowerPoint format as an unknown case and should preferably focus on unusual or atypical presentations of common diseases of the abdomen or pelvis. The case should be image rich and the PowerPoint presentation should include a number of multiple choice questions pertaining to the imaging findings, the disease entity, and management. Questions may also be modality or physics related. The PowerPoint presentation should also include a brief discussion of key teaching points.
- In contrast, the JCAT submission is to follow the conventions for a conventional case report, with a description of the clinical history and imaging findings for the particular case, display of relevant images, followed by a Discussion section that includes what is known of the entity and its imaging from a review of the literature, how this case relates to the literature, as well as a brief discussion of the differential diagnosis and management of this entity. Please see details below.
• The primary modality of the case should be CT or MR; relevant other modalities (e.g. Ultrasound, nuclear medicine) may be included in the case presentation.
