Because Radiopaedia started in Australia, we have until now supported only UK spelling. That's right oedema, haemorrhage and colour.

We know, however, that many of you prefer US spelling and are completely freaked out by all these extra letters. We can empathise. To us spelling oesophagus esophaus is, well, just a bit creepy.

And we also know how much some of you like z instead of s. Oh my, look at how zany organise looks with a z! I love it! 

Thanks to our amazing (or should that be amasing?) Radiopaedia Supporters we will now be changing all the spelling to be just right for you. No more flamewars among the editors about the pros and cons of oedema vs edema, aluminium vs aluminum or haemorrhage vs hemorrhage. You get the spelling you prefer. 

We'll take a punt based on your browser language setting, but to get it perfect just update the language setting of your free Radiopaedia profile and we'll do the rest. You can read more about it here

Features like this are, however, only possible because of Radiopaedia Supporters. If you are a supporter, thank you. Seriously. This is the sort of feature that you allow us to build.

If you are not a supporter but would like to become one, then this is the perfect time to do so. It will make you feel warm and tingly all over. Nothing quite compares, especially when one of the perks is no ads!

    I want to use this opportunity to thank Dr.Afrid for making me a complete man again, i was infected with herpes for years i have been seriously praying to God and searching for cure. I came here last month to search for solution to my herpes infection and i saw a comment of people praising Dr Afrid and God directed me to choose Dr.Afrid and i contacted Him, he sent me a herbal medication and directed me on how i will take the medication for few days, i did so and went for a test and my result came out as Negative. i am so happy friends, i shared tears of happiness and i have taken it upon my self to always testify about how God used Dr.Afrid to solve my problem. I am nagative now. I will still drop his E-MAIL [email protected] So friends my advise is if you have such sickness or virus, all you can do email Dr.Afrid through his Email: [email protected] or whatsapp him on +2349057260738 or view his{website:}
