welcome to radiology-courses.com
Welcome to radiology-courses.com, the website for radiology teaching courses run by Dr. Gerald de Lacey, Dr. Lol Berman and Dr Simon Morley in London at Northwick Park Hospital Education Centre, Harrow. A few courses are held at the University College Hospital ( UCH ) Education Centre, 250 Euston Road, London, and also in Newport, South Wales.
This website provides information about forthcoming courses, to make bookings on line, and to buy our books.
We have launched two new FREE interactive radiology teaching resources.
- radiologyanatomy.com - Use it to test
yourself and learn cross sectional anatomy. We have developed a Java based image viewer which allows you to view images
in a similar format to using a PACS workstation.
- thereportingroom.com - The aim of this
website is to allow you to test yourself at interpreting radiology cases using software similar to that in use in
normal day to day practice. We have developed viewing software which runs on your web browser allowing you to scroll
through stacks of CT and MRI images and view plain film images with windowing zoom and pan functionality - just like a
there are TWELVE different courses
Some are designed for Consultants working in Radiology and also for Consultants working in other disciplines for whom radiology findings are often crucial to diagnosis or management.
Some courses are designed for Specialist Registrars as well as for Consultants. Some of these are constructed specifically for FY2 doctors working in the Emergency Department or on the medical or surgical wards. Other courses are designed specifically for radiographers and / or Emergency Nurse Practitioners.
There is a course for Year 3 Medical Students. In addition, customised courses can be created to meet any specific local need; these can be carried out anywhere in the UK or elsewhere in Europe.
|1.||The A&E Radiology Survival Course - for Doctors|
|Designed mainly for junior Doctors working in the Emergency Department. Suitable also for junior radiologists and orthopaedic surgeons in training. Nurse practitioners working in the Emergency Department regularly attend, and are always welcome.|
|2.||The Chest X-ray Survival Course - for Doctors|
|This course is aimed at any doctor involved in acute patient care who is responsible for chest xray interpretation. This course covers essential principles of CXR interpretation. The course emphasis is practical CXR interpretation at workstations.|
|3.||The FRCR 2b Rapid Reporting Courses|
|Many candidates who fail the FRCR 2b final exam do so because of failure to recognise some or many of the Emergency Department or CXR abnormalities included in the Rapid Reporting exam. This course has been designed to give you tips, hints, strategies and lots of practice of the exam situation. Perfect image quality displayed on 19" LCD monitors. Multiple sets of images.|
|4.||The Advanced Chest X-ray Study Day|
|For all those who assess plain films, including Consultants and Specialist Registrars in radiology, in general medicine, in the emergency department and ICU. The courses provides an opportunity for using self-assessment as a means of testing, confirming and / or revising and improving plain film reporting skills. This is a "no powerpoint lectures" course. Registants analyse cases at individual workstations.|
|5.||The Chest HRCT Course|
|To enable you to test yourself in HRCT interpretation. This will allow you to a) confirm your existing skills and knowledge and / or b) allow you to reinforce and advance your learning. The teaching is led by two well known experts : Dr Sujal Desai (Kings College Hospital) and Dr Simon Padley (The Royal Brompton, and the Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals).|
|6.||The Practical Course in Acute Abdominal CT Interpretation|
|This course is aimed mainly at radiology SpRs and Consultants but other clinicians interested in acute abdominal imaging will also find the course enjoyable and valuable. The course emphasis is on case analysis at workstations.|
|7.||The Practical Course in Petrous Temporal Bone and Sinus CT Interpretation|
|This course is aimed mainly at SpR's in radiology. All the same, many radiology consultants and other clinicians interested in head and neck imaging are likely to find the course enjoyable and valuable.|
|8.||The Red Dot Trauma Course - for Radiographers|
|Developed for Radiographers working in the Emergency Department and who use a radiographer alert system such as the Red Dot scheme.|
|9.||The Red Dot Chest X-ray Course - for Radiographers|
|Radiographers in the emergency department are sometimes called upon to highlight important abnormalities on the CXR. This course aims to help improve Radiographers` confidence in highlighting those abnormalities on the CXR.|
|10.||Advanced Plain Film Trauma - Beyond the Essentials|
|This new one day course provides the opportunity for Radiologists (all grades), Emergency Department doctors (all grades), Orthopaedic surgeons (all grades), and Reporting Radiographers to test themselves when analysing images from 150 cases presenting to the Emergency Department. The answer sessions are designed so as to (a) demonstrate / explain the diagnosis in each case, and (b) supply supplementary teaching in order to reinforce the principles that underpin accurate assessment of radiographs following injuries to the axial and appendicular skeleton.|
|11.||UCL Pilot Radiology Teaching Day Year 3 Medical Students|
|University College, London : A Pilot Radiology Teaching Day for UCL Year 3 Medical Students.
The teaching concentrates on the commonest radiological examination in every general hospital – the Chest radiograph ( CXR ). This one day course adopts a practical approach : the students, in pairs, analyse CXRs at workstations. The aim is to assist medical students to understand a few of the basic principles underlying accurate CXR analysis . . . whether in the Emergency Department, in the Out Patient Clinic, or on the Medical or Surgical wards. This pilot course has been created by Radiology Red Dot Courses as a contribution to medical student teaching at UCL.
|Radiology Red Dot Courses will respond to any unit, specialty, or group of individuals who request a customised Course. Customised courses can be brought to any site or place of work whether in the UK, Eire, or elsewhere in Europe. Radiology Red Dot Courses can bring - and set up - 70 workstations to any venue.|
