Radiology Events and Learning (REAL)

Learning from errors, discrepancies, educational cases and thought-provoking scenarios has been reported to be one of the most highly valued CPD activities clinicians can undertake.

REAL Online, RCR Learning Hub

We are excited to introduce Radiology Events and Learning (REAL), our interactive learning resource for radiologists to practise. It is highly popular globally as a way to move beyond a ‘blame culture’ to one of learning and support. Can you spot the pathology amongst the normal cases? Have a go - we are building a selection of fun, short quizzes with learning points using real cases sent in by colleagues via the REAL panel. They are selected because of their clinical relevance and educational benefit. Please see the current cases available here.

How to submit a case to Real Online:

  1. Click the button below and follow the prompts to register or login. 
  2. Upload five DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) cases, 3 or 4 normal and 1 or 2 abnormal. 
  3. These will be evaluated for use on the Learning Hub and if selected, 3 CPD credits are available. (N.B. DICOM files should be in be in unzipped folders before uploading).
