Despite the technological advancements in medical imaging, the chest X-Ray remains the most frequently requested radiological investigation, and one of, if not the most difficult to interpret correctly. This course provides a comprehensive review of the fundamental principles in chest X-Ray interpretation and reporting. Interactive multimedia live group sessions are undertaken with lectures. The goal of the course is to provide practitioners with the confidence to recognise a normal chest X-Ray, common patterns of disease, and specific radiographic changes in commonly encountered clinical settings. All lectures are developed by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.
