75129 - Acute Medical & Surgical CT Interpretation

  • : Online

This course is the perfect introduction to computed tomography in the acute clinical setting. 

Designed in a systematic learning format, the course covers acquisition, normal variations, patterns of disease & pitfalls in CT imaging of the head, chest, abdomen, pelvis, cervical & thoracolumbar spine. Each module is composed of a didactic lecture followed by an interactive session where participants review CT cases on PACS alone or in pairs to reinforce fundamental learning objectives. Our goal is to provide practitioners with the knowledge and confidence to interpret CT findings in commonly encountered acute 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.
