A New Radiological Image Library

Just Discovered this new site-Radiology Picture of the Day which features a new medical image daily, with a brief description.
Discovered some very characterstic CT scan finding of this interesting case on this site-
"Epiploic appendagitis is an inflammatory / ischaemic process involving an appendix epiploica of the colon. The characteristic CT appearance is shown: a fat-density ovoid structure adjacent to colon, with a thin high-density rim; surrounding inflammatory fat stranding. The diagnosis can be confidently made with CT, and exploratory surgery avoided. The condition can be expected to resolve in around 7 days."
Full case with high resolution image and many more such cases here-
