I appreciate applications that make learning easy. While many applications have good information, it often gets clogged by poor formatting. CXR free is a perfect, simple application that teaches how to read a radiograph.

CXR free opens to either a learning zone or exam zone. The learning zone covers interpretation strategies, terminology, and key radiographic patterns. The exam zone displays a large number of radiographs in either flashcard or multiple choice question modes. The images are high quality, have overlayed radiographic findings, and zoom.

    Download this when you have 45 minutes for a great introductory course to chest radiographs. Use it, love it, and give them good feedback.
