75121 - Chest X-Ray Interpretation

  • : Online

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 small live group sessions are undertaken between 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 presented by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.

Relevance to General Practice

Medical imaging is becoming increasingly utilised throughout all areas of medicine including general practice and imaging technology is becoming more and more complex. Keeping up to date with these advances can be difficult for doctors in a busy practice. Increasingly, GP’s are expected to make management decisions based on these medical imaging findings. Knowledge of fundamental image interpretation principles can assist to guide this process. Improving understanding of radiation hygiene and appropriate imaging modality selection will result in improved patient care.
