Few Useful Conventional Radiology websites

1. The X-ray Century http://www.cc.emory.edu/X-RAYS/century.htm is a historical set of absorbing articles relating to Roentgen's discovery of X-rays. The material has been created by Peter Sprawls PhD, from the Department of Radiology at Emory University. It is presented as editions of Newsletters written in the past, giving a "Back to the Future" feel. For instance the Nov. 8, 1895 edition of The X-ray Century deals with Prof. Roentgen discovering a new kind of ray, while the Jan. 1, 1896 edition of The X-ray Century at http://www.emory.edu/X-RAYS/century_05.htm has excerpts of Prof. Roentgen's first paper describing the new kind of ray.

2. Chorus or Collaborative Hypertext of Radiology
at http://chorus.rad.mcw.edu/ is available from Medical College of Wisconsin. It is a "quick reference" hypertext for physicians and medical students with more than 1,100 documents that describe diseases, radiological findings, differential-diagnosis lists ("gamuts"), and relevant anatomy, pathology, and physiology. Interestingly, CHORUS is based on Fact/File, a radiology hypertext reference that has been used with a clinical radiology information system at the University of Chicago. This "quick reference" hypertext deals with individual systems, multisystem entities, besides having a separate feature on technical material.

Radiology Board Review Notes http://medicine.creighton.edu/radiology/Boardrevnotes.html and http://medicine.creighton.edu/radiology/basicimaglec.html is a site from Creighton University with comprehensive text material on different organ systems such as Musculoskeletal, Chest, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Obstetrics, Neuroradiology and on different modalities such as Radiophysics, Mammography and Nuclear Medicine. Another feature of the website is the coverage on Differential Diagnosis and Staging of Neoplasms

Skull Radiography at http://www.xray2000.f9.co.uk/Site3/technique/skullindex.htm deals with an important area of radiography. The site has three basic categories namely General Notes, Supine Trolley Technique and Erect Bucky technique. The highlight of the site is the illustrative features on Basic Skull Osteology, Landmarks and Planes, Skull Radiography Indications for Imaging From Royal College of Radiologists, and a variety of positioning techniques.

ChestX-Ray.com at http://www.chestx-ray.com/ is a brilliantly conceived website covering probably the gamut of chest radiology. This site from Mayo Clinic Rochester has sections on education, lectures, tutorials, practice and research resources. The highlight of the site are the illustrative multimedia lectures on SPN: Detection & Decisions, Statistics for Radiologists, Tutorials on Pulmonary Anatomy & Physiology, Guidelines on a good Radiology Report. Separate subsections on Lung Cancer, Calculators, Coronary Artery Calcification makes interesting browsing.

6. George Simon's X-Ray Collection at http://www.sbu.ac.uk/~dirt/museum/cmh1.html is an excellent site dealing with Chest Radiology with a tremendous contribution from Ian Maddison, a Radiologist. The site has separate sections on Topics, Teaching Cases, Pathology and Museum . The cases in Cardio-Thoracic radiology are divided into cardiology and pulmonary sections. The Pulmonary Radiology Teaching has features such as a list of normal chest X-ray anatomical features, a review of the silhouette sign, patterns of septal lines and pulmonary oedema.

7. Basic Chest X-Ray Review at http://rad.usuhs.mil/rad/chest_review/index.html is an elegantly conceived website from the Department of Radiology, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, Bethesda, Maryland. The format is brief, and contains comprehensively illustrated information on plain chest radiograph under the following sections : soft tissues & bones, mediastinum, hila, lungs and pleura.

8. The X-ray Files http://www.radiology.co.uk/srs-x/ is a collection of educational material for radiologists in training. This useful teaching aid contains a selection of pathology cases presented as unknowns provided on the web by the Scottish Radiological Society. Lobar Collapse Tutorial at http://www.radiology.co.uk/srs-x/tutorials.htm is an illustrative tutorial available in the X-ray Files. This tutorial created by Dr A Downie is designed to explain the various types of lobar collapse on the plain chest film with illustrations and examples. Topics covered here are silhouette sign, causes of collapse, general features of lobar collapse, normal PA and lateral film, Extent of lobes on normal films and the types of lobe collapse.

Radiographic Anatomy of the Skeleton at http://www.rad.washington.edu/radanat/ is an excellent teaching aid created by M L Richardson. This simple but impressive site encompasses the principla areas of the appendicular and axial skeleton. Both labelled and unlabelled versions of normal X-rays of regions such as Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand, Pelvis, Knee, Ankle , Foot and Cervical and Lumbar Spine are available.

10. A Fracture Atlas at http://www.gentili.net/fracturemain.asp is an online reference to an assorted types of fracture. Created by A Gentili from VAMC , the text and images have excellent online links to textbooks such as Wheeless' Orthopedics and references to Journals. The depth at each section is admirable. To illustrate, the section on pelvis fracture includes Avulsion fracture, Duverney fracture, Straddle Injury, Sacral fracture, Acetabular fracture, Dashboard fracture, Hip fracture-dislocation, Pathologic fracture (femur).


The History of Radiology at http://www.medinfo.ufl.edu/other/histmed/klioze/ has presentations on a variety of topics related to the evolution of Radiology. Some of the many topics included are Discovery of X-rays, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, Roentgen's Laboratory, November 8, 1895, Bremsstrahlung, Modern Tube, First Medical Radiograph, Angiography, features on Godfrey Hounsfield and Dr. Paul Lauterbur. This presentation is best viewed with RealPlayer that is available free from www.real.com.

Roentgen X-ray Centennial at http://www.softcode.com/X_ray.html has excellent links to other Roentgen Pages such as Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, From Roentgen's own University of Würzberg, Radiation Photo Gallery, Roentgen Centenary , A New Kind of Vision: The Discovery of X-Rays, The X-ray Century, Rports of Research with Gas Discharge Tubes form history, The Roentgen Centennial 1895 - 1995
