CT - Acute Medical and Surgical Interpretation

About this course

Course cost: $500

The perfect introduction to computed tomography in the acute clinical setting.

Designed in a systematic learning format, the  course covers acquisition, normal variations, patterns of disease & pitfalls in CT imaging of the head, chest, abdomen, pelvis, cervical & thoracolumbar spine. Each module is composed of a didactic lecture followed by an interactive session where participants review CT cases alone or in pairs to reinforce fundamental learning objectives. Our goal is to provide practitioners with the knowledge and confidence to interpret CT findings in commonly encountered acute clinical settings. All lectures are presented by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.


Lightbox Radiology Education courses include a variety of interactive sessions to cement the learning objectives.  Our materials are both Mac and PC compatible and it is recommended that you bring your own laptop to your course or arrange to share a laptop with a friend during the interactive sessions.
