Standard article structure

Standard article structure is important on Radiopaedia.org so that we have a consistent article structure and maintain uniformity across the whole site.

Standard sections

A typical article should have an article title and then is broken down into a set of standard sections, although, not every article has each and every section. The order of sections is, however, fixed. In other words, "Clinical presentation" always comes before "Radiographic features" even if there is no need for a "Pathology" section. 

All of these sections should have a Heading 4 style chosen from the editing toolbar. The one exception is the introduction, which is "normal" text. 

Special purpose articles

The above structure should be used in most instances, except for the following specific special purpose articles:
