Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Since its inception in 2010, Instagram has rapidly grown into one of the world's largest social media forums, with over 700 million registered users. In the field of medicine, Instagram has been used for professional development and is also being added to the armamentarium of social media vehicles for education. Utilization of Instagram for medical education lags behind Facebook and Twitter, as many educators may not recognize the potential role. The purpose of this manuscript is to describe unique features of Instagram that are not found on Facebook and Twitter, with the aim of facilitating use of Instagram for radiology education.
