Capitalization

Capitalization is a potential area where style differences can make a significant difference to the content at Radiopaedia.org, and as usual, a consistent style is crucial for uniformity of the site. 

Article titles and case titles, as well as subheadings, should be in sentence case.

Correct:

  • Myeloma with extraskeletal involvement
  • Hepatocellular carcinoma
  • Skull

Incorrect:

  • myeloma with extraskeletal involvement
  • MYELOMA WITH EXTRASKELETAL INVOLVEMENT
  • Myeloma With Extra Skeletal Involvement​

Rare exceptions to the universal use of capitalization for the initial letter of a title exist, e.g. the 'k' in k-space is always written in lower case

Bulleted and numbered lists should not be capitalized unless the term deserves a capital on its own account (e.g. name of someone). Read more about bulleted and numbered lists.

The use of capitals in abbreviations depends on the specific abbreviation. Read more about accepted abbreviations
