Numerous resources are available to the residents to further their educational experience and include: library and computer facilities with wireless Internet and email access, the American College of Radiology film teaching file and DVD series. The program maintains its own private library and conference room which includes a collection of teaching DVDs and textbooks which are continuously and systematically updated. Residents are provided access to StatDx and UpToDate. There is an extensive video library used for study and conference presentation. The residents regularly contribute to the ever-expanding teaching file. The program also has a large collection of pertinent journals and other educational materials at their disposal, including institutional online journal access.
The following links comprise a collection of helpful Radiology resources for residents and medical students:
Introduction to Radiology: an online interactive tutorial
Developed by the University of Virginia Department of Radiology, this site has numerous online tutorials, some more interactive than others. The tutorials on cross-sectional anatomy (thorax, abdomen, and pelvis) are particularly helpful and describe the index level approach to reading images. Each tutorial includes a link to a PDF with labeled axial diagrams that are useful references when viewing actual CT’s.
Radiology Education: a digital library of radiology resources
The section for “Medical Students" is particularly helpful with links to several online tutorials, including some of the older UVA tutorials as well as a number of other unique sites (e.g. Radiology Masterclass and UMDNJ StudentPACS). It also includes links to “Teaching Files" and "Anatomy & Embryology Atlases" on the main page.
Excellent online tutorials, including a special series designed for those going into primary care. There are also more detailed tutorials organized by organ system. Many of the tutorials have videos with sound which can provide a nice break from reading. The author also has an iPhone app of case files for review.
Learning Radiology: Recognizing the Basics
Probably the best known resource, this is the online site companion to the introductory text by the same name. The book is incredibly helpful in providing a framework for understanding the basics of radiology. The Case of the Week archives are probably the most useful part of the site.
