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.
