Links to useful free online radiology resources for radiology trainees
Below are links to great radiology websites. The list is not extensive, however we feel that the websites below represent some of the best radiology educational resources out there. Take a look:
Radiopaedia.org is a free educational radiology resource with one of the web’s largest collections of radiology cases and reference articles. Their aim is to create the best radiology reference available, and we think they’re done a pretty good job! Probably the best reference site for radiology trainees.
Ultrasoundcases.info is a large free teaching file containing 1000’s of general ultrasound cases. If you’ve just scanned a patient and you’re not quite sure what you’ve seen, then look here. Well categorised and very user friendly, an invaluable resource and probably the best ultrasound reference site.
Radiologyassistant.nl is a free resource providing up-to-date radiological education for trainees and consultants. They focus on common clinical problems and each topic is presented by an expert in that field. Probably the best revision resource for trainees, and particularly useful when on-call.
The Liver Imaging Atlas is a free, web-based reference of liver CT, MRI and ultrasound imaging that contains a comprehensive spectrum of liver diseases and their imaging features. It is great as a teaching resource for trainees and as a tool for construction of image-based differential diagnoses by radiologists in practice.
Imageinterpretation.co.uk is a free musculoskeletal (MSK) radiograph elearning website aimed primarily at junior radiology trainees and radiographers. Each module covers a particular anatomical area and both the appendicular and axial skeleton are covered. Relevance to the paediatric skeleton is included in each section. A good resource for ST1 trainees learning MSK radiology.
Young ESGAR e-tutorials are short educational videos on topics of GI radiology. For each e-tutorial the main learning points are summarised in a short PDF file.
The British Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology has a great ‘How to’ Barium Swallow guide followed by a selection of 20 example barium swallow cases covering a range of common and rarer conditions. A great teaching resource for trainees learning fluoroscopic swallow examinations.
