Chest x-ray interpretation can be a daunting prospect for junior doctors, nurses and allied health professionals alike. Although there are lots of resources out there it is often difficult to know where to start.
This event aims to help you on your way to understanding the basic principles of chest x-ray interpretation. The normal appearances of the chest will be discussed with examples, along with where to look and what to look for. We will then discuss the principles of consolidation, how to review lung masses and pathologies associated with the pleura.
This event is suitable for all students with an interest in x-ray interpretation, radiographers, junior doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and radiology registrars.
