About this course

Course cost: US$260

The ability to interpret diagnostic images has become essential in handling emergency situations and making confident decisions. This course provides a systematic review of the fundamental principles in emergency X-Ray interpretation.

The goal of the course is to provide practitioners with the knowledge and confidence to recognise radiographic patterns of trauma and injury commonly encountered for the cervical & thoracolumbar spine, pelvis, upper & lower limbs, skull and face.  Interactive multimedia live group sessions are undertaken with lectures.  All lectures are developed by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.
