2-day Chest X-RAY Course

Doctors of all levels welcome (FY1, FY2, CT, SpR, GPST, GP, SAS and Consultants) whatever your speciality and level of confidence in CXR interpretation. Senior Radiographers and Specialist Nurse Practitioners with an interest in CXR are also welcome.

The Chest X-RAY is the most commonly performed diagnostic radiographic examination.

This two day course will help you develop or refine your systematic approach to chest X-RAY review.  We will cover a wide variety of pathology which will increase your confidence in day-to-day CXR clinical interpretation and help you prepare for exams.
