Wade Hedegard M.D. is a breast imaging radiologist with a special interest in finding ways to improve education. He works at one of the busiest breast imaging practices in the U.S. (www.ewbc.com) He has lectured at national meetings and at CME courses around the country. He feels weird writing about himself in the third person and will stop now.
During my training I was shocked by the lack of resources available. I poured over dozens of big textbooks and case review books as well as hundreds of journal articles, yet still was unable to quickly and easily answer simple real-world questions. Things like "how do you work up an asymmetry?" or "what are the exact steps to performing a stereotactic biopsy?" I knew there must be a better way.
In radiology, a picture is worth a thousand words and I have discovered that step-by-step video guides are the ultimate way to master any subject. Learning does not have to be so hard!
