My name is Annelies van der Plas; I am currently working as fellow in the clinical musculoskeletal radiology section at Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC).
During my medical studies, I noted that the availability of educational radiology materials was very limited.
It would seem that in terms of radiology, interns are thrown in at the deep end.

Seeing the role of radiology in the clinical diagnostic process is becoming increasingly important, each intern must have a basic knowledge of radiology.
This problem inspired me to develop an educational radiology platform specifically for interns (launch: 24 January 2014).
One of my favorite leisure activities is to create easy-to-understand illustrations and courses, providing Dutch interns with a convenient and fun way to prepare for their internships.

The project was originally intended for Dutch medical students/interns (www.startpuntradiologie.nl).
The positive response prompted the launch of an English version also (7 July 2016), enabling even more medical students/interns to benefit from these materials.
