X-Ray - Chest and Emergency Interpretation Essentials Online

About this course

Course cost: US$200

A comprehensive review of the fundamental principles of chest and emergency X-Ray interpretation. A certificate is issued electronically upon completion.

Our Chest X-Ray Interpretation and Emergency X-Ray Interpretation courses bundled together. This course provides a comprehensive review of the fundamental principles in chest and emergency X-Ray interpretation.

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. Often the chest x-ray will be used in conjunction with other examinations, especially in emergency cases. This course will provide practitioners with the knowledge and confidence to review radiographic techniques and recognise normal variants and radiographic patterns of trauma and injury commonly encountered for the chest, cervical & thoracolumbar spine, pelvis, upper & lower limbs, skull and face.  

Estimated time to complete - 14 hours.

Modules are viewable for 6 times and will expire in 60 days.
