Musculoskeletal fracture detection is becoming a crucial part of the radiographer role, whether its red dotting, commenting or simply verbal communication of significant injuries to clinicians. Accurate and timely identification of fractures can significantly impact the treatment of the patient.
Whether you are a student with an interest in x-ray interpretation, a practicing radiographer, junior doctor, nurse or physiotherapist this is an event not to be missed!
We will help you on your way to understanding the basic principles of fracture detection on x-rays. Firstly we will run through the principles of fractures including fracture description, then we will focus on both upper and lower limb trauma (axial skeleton will be covered in another event).
This will give you valuable knowledge to take into your role and will form an impactful piece of continuing professional development for your portfolio.
