Bone Tumors on You tube

You tube has revolutionised the information dissemination scenario. From reading text the scenario has now changed of visuals. Medical knowledge dissemination through you tube is started almost from the inceptino of the website. There are many videos and essential details that are available on the you tube website. The problem is selecting a few and finding time to watch them. The JBST Oncomedia team and gone through you tube and found some interesting vedioes that we can recommend to our readers. We will also be psoting links of these videos on jbstjournal.com too. Lets see some details of these videos.
1. Pathology of Bone tumors. Essentially meant for postgraduate students, this video gives pictures of true specimens and their description.

2. Bone Tumor Imaging: is a video of powerpoint lecture by Dr K L Verstraete. Although made in 2012, the lecture is quite informative and will help many to update their knowledge about Bone Tumor imaging.

3. KOC Radiology conference: This KOC talk was given by our editorial board member Dr Bhavin Jhankaria in 2014. This is a very thorough update on imaging of bone tumor and delivered in inimitable style of Dr Bhavin. We highly recommend everyone to watch this video.

4. MSK Imaging bone tumor: Finally we can complete the update on bone imaging by watching this detailed video. Again presented in format of voice over of a powerpoint presentation, this includes a very good visual appeal to the video.
