About the Radiology programme

The Radiology – Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI), is the award winning e-learning project developed in collaboration with the Royal College of Radiologists (RCR).

R-ITI supports and enhances the learning of ST1-3 specialist registrars on the 5-year radiology training scheme, breaking down the main RCR curriculum into 15 modules by subject area and consisting of around 800 bite-sized e-learning sessions.

The R-ITI e-learning solution is now available over the web to all 5000 UK radiologists. With over 600 hours of e-learning, it is one of the largest e-learning projects in the world.

As part of a continuous improvement programme, R-ITI undergoes regular editorial and design reviews (every 5 years) and is currently in a review cycle. Many sessions have already been reviewed and republished in a new and improved format and many others are due to be republished soon. If you would like to be involved in reviewing a R-ITI e-learning session, please contact RCRLearning@rcr.ac.uk.

Sample sessions

  • Bone Lesions of the Diaphysis

    Reviewed in 2017

  • Cardiac Shapes

    Reviewed in 2015

    This session reviews the normal cardiac outline and which chambers contribute to this, followed by a review of specific chamber enlargement or absence and how this will alter the normal cardiac shape. A review of different diagnoses which result in characteristic cardiac shapes enabling the diagnosis to be made from the chest radiograph. Associated features such as other mediastinal findings and changes in the lungs will be included, where relevant e.g. right aortic arch.

  • Abnormalities of the Bladder and Urethra

    Reviewed in 2016

    In this session you will learn about congenital abnormalities of the bladder and urethra. You will also learn about some normal anatomical structures in the urethra which can be confused with abnormalities.

  • Vestibular_Schwannomas

    Reviewed in 2016

    In this session, we will cover the anatomy of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) and the common types of CPA lesions with emphasis on vestibular schwannomas. We will briefly discuss the presentation of such lesions and the strategy for their investigation, including the role of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and advanced MRI sequences.

History of R-ITI

R-ITI’s e-learning resource is based entirely on the knowledge and experience of practising clinical radiologists, representing best practice in radiology and combining traditional proven teaching models with state of the art technology.

Following several years of planning and development, R-ITI was successfully launched in March 2007. Since its launch, it has received a number of industry awards and accolades including the e-Learning Age 2008 Award for Best Online or Distance Learning Project and the e-Government National Awards 2008 for Excellence in Learning and Skills.

 

R-ITI’s success is driving the future delivery of generic and professional healthcare training in the NHS and is a significant step forward in the training and development of doctors
