We present a system based on A.I. techniques and oriented to radiologic diagnosis. SBC-RX uses expert knowledge which is displayed by a graphic interface. It allows queries and helps, explaining reasoning paths and interaction with basic images in order to show the features of each patology. In the new feature the system randomly selects a case problem from the teaching file, and presents it to the user. The diagnosis process is similar to aided diagnosis but the system does not accept incorrect answers from the user. When the diagnosis process ends, the system gives a list of mistakes made by the user and radiologic concepts that may have to be reviewed.
