An award-winning e-learning resource for radiologists
The Radiology – Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI) supports and enhances the learning of radiologists. It has been developed by the UK Royal College of Radiologists and Health Education England.
During the programme, you can complete more than 750 interactive sessions that cover the breadth of the UK radiology curriculum. The training offers ideal preparation for FRCR* and equivalent examinations. It is also suitable if you're a fully qualified clinician looking to reinforce or strengthen your core knowledge.
High-quality radiology training
The highly interactive programme includes case studies and practical exercises to enhance your learning. The use of images (including X-rays), ultrasound video clips and 3D diagrams helps to create greater spatial awareness and realism than textbook learning. Using self-assessment exercises, you can also check your understanding on key topics.
R-ITI is available via the Internet so you can study at your own pace, in your own time. In recent years, R-ITI has won several UK training awards and it has set a gold standard for e-learning in healthcare.
*Fellowship of The Royal College of Radiologists
R-ITI features 15 modules that are divided up into smaller e-learning sessions. Each session typically takes around 30 to 40 minutes to complete.

Below are two real sessions from R-ITI which, in common with all R-ITI sessions, have been written by subject specialists. These demonstrate how the e-learning works, how multimedia features such as animation support learning, and how you can check your understanding of a subject through assessment.
Making the most of R-ITI Trainer Guide
This introductory session to the e-learning solution, the Radiology - Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI), is designed to give you an overview of the content, the benefits of integrating e-learning into your training design as well as a guide on how to use the materials effectively.
Making the most of R-ITI Trainee Guide
This introductory session to the e-learning solution, the Radiology - Integrated Training Initiative (R-ITI), is designed to give you an overview of the content, the benefits of learning using the R-ITI e-learning, as well as a guide illustrating how to use the materials effectively.
Bone Lesions of the Epiphysis
This session enables learners to understand the lesions that predominate in the epiphyseal area. Causes and examples of the common lesions are included.
This session covers the skull, axial skeleton and upper limbs of paediatric bone scans.
In this session you will learn about the more common types of cardiac tumour. The imaging approach in these patients is discussed and the cross-sectional imaging appearances of some of these tumours is presented.
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
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.
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.
Bone Lesions of the Diaphysis
In this session you will see a range of diaphyseal lesions. Images of aggressive and non-aggressive lesions are presented, together with explanations regarding the pathologies and their differential diagnoses.
