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. Our 'Combined Chest X-Ray and Emergency X-Ray Interpretation' course provides a comprehensive review of the fundamental principles in chest and emergency X-Ray interpretation. 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 to recognise radiographic patterns of trauma and injury commonly encountered for each body area. All lectures are developed by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.
