An Introduction to X-Ray Interpretation
EVENT DATE TBC – TICKETS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!
Event time: Approximately 4 hours
This event is created with the student radiographer in mind but is also suitable for any healthcare professional with an interest or role in x-ray interpretation. This includes medical students, doctors (all grades), nurse practitioners, advanced care practitioners, physician’s assistants and physiotherapists.
This event consists of two lectures. The first lecture details outlines the basic principles of musculoskeletal fracture detection; including how to describe them and how to identify the commonest occurring fractures. The second lecture outlines the key review areas of the chest, normal appearances and the radiological manifestations of chest pathology.
