Learn the basics of CT, MRI and Ultrasound

Radiology is often a neglected component of the undergraduate curriculum.  Plain films are given much more importance than cross-sectional imaging, and rightly so.  However, it is important for junior doctors to be able to identify certain important pathology on cross-sectional imaging, particularly in the ED where the interpretation of a radiologist may not be immediately available.

A focus on cross-sectional imaging

The aim of this resource is to provide an easily accessible resource on cross-sectional imaging, aimed at the appropriate level for medical students on clinical attachments and junior doctors.  This resource includes the underlying physics, important presentations and common pathologies, with a focus on acute conditions.  Important cross-sectional anatomy is also presented, this may be useful for more junior students and for revision purposes for senior students.
