Some free modules are available which are very good for beginners to help them through their preparation for anatomy modules of the FRCR Part 1.
R-ITI, the Radiology - Integrated Training Initiative, 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 five year Radiology training scheme, breaking down the main RCR curriculum into fifteen modules by subject area and consisting of around 750 bite-sized e-learning sessions. The R-ITI e-learning solution is now available over the web to all UK radiologists. With over 600 hours of e-learning, it is one of the largest e-learning projects in the world. Modules can be rated by using a star system, which is helpful in filtering the useful modules.
Radiopaedia.org is a free educational radiology resource with one of the web's largest collections of radiology cases and reference articles. Their aim is to create the best radiology reference available, and we think they're done a pretty good job! Probably the best reference site for radiology trainees.
The term "Aunt Minnie" has been attributed to two iconic figures in radiology history: Ed Neuhauser and Ben Felson. An Aunt Minnie, or Aunt Minnie approach, is a constellation of observations that the experienced reader finds virtually pathognomonic of an entity, usually an unusual or unexpected disease. With the publication of the Aunt Minnie's Atlas and the popularity of the Aunt Minnie Website, the original meaning of the term has been slightly expanded so that it is now applied to any classical constellation of findings.
The Radiology Assistant is the educational web site of the Radiological Society of the Netherlands. It has selection of articles on abdominal, breast, chest, pediatric and neuroradiology, with high quality images. No registration is required and no annual subscriptions to pay.
Flash macromedia based presentations on day to day common topics in chest radiology makes this website stand out of the rest. It is free but requires registration. I couldn’t find the origin of website but quality of the articles found on the website is good.
It is an advertisement free website maintained by Michael P. D'Alessandro, M.D, University of Lowa, USA, which provides list of World Wide Web sites furnishing a point of entry into radiology places of enlightenment, entertainment and education on the Internet.

Recognition of signs in musculo-skeletal radiology helps in making a specific diagnosis or gives a brief differential diagnosis. This website illustrates common signs in musculoskeletal radiology with radiographs and illustrations.
The Norwich Image Interpretation Course is aimed primarily at radiographers who provide a "red dot" service to A&E, however it will also benefit the beginners in radiology in development of their trauma image interpretation skills. Each module covers a particular anatomical area, and both the appendicular and axial skeleton are covered.
MSK Atlas is a collection of musculoskeletal cases organized under heading of related joints and bones.
This online text on MSK radiology by radiologists from University of Washington makes MSK radiology an interesting and easy to remember read.
This is series of radiology cases from Dr. Hunter's experiences at University of Washington and from Stanford University.
This is innovative and comprehensive online learning curriculum being run by Cleveland Clinic, that covers 'core concepts' in pediatric radiology including 80 interactive learning modules. Originally it was designed for radiology residents rotating through pediatric radiology but has gradually expanded.
The Paediatric Radiology site is meant to serve as a portal for users interested in pediatric radiology by providing a comprehensive list of World-Wide Web sites that can teach, illuminate, and inspire. It is maintained by the same team who developed radiologyeducation.com.
Cardiology And Chest Radiology
Learning radiology.com has up growing number of cardiac radiology lectures as Flash/PDF and Power Point Presentations. Moreover there are other topics covered as ‘notes’.
