Learning advanced chest x-ray interpretation skills

The resources already covered are sufficient for having a baseline understanding of how to read chest x-ray pathology. However, if you want to developed more advanced skills — there are other resources you should consider.

iRadiology was developed from the huge database curated by Dr. Gillian Lieberman. She is a the director of Medical Student Radiological Education at Harvard Medical School, and is well known in radiology circles for her free online radiology modules.

iRadiology was an iOS app released in 2009, and hasn’t had an update since — the app has clearly been abandoned from a developmental standpoint, but the content within the app is still very relevant. You’ll notice the app doesn’t take up your iPhone’s full screen (iPhone 5 and iPhone 6), due to the lack of updates.

The app contains CT imaging along with chest x-ray imaging, and a lot of the images contain advanced level content that many residents and attendings who aren’t radiologists wouldn’t even know.

But the app is free to download, and worth playing around with to build up your reps.
