Course Information

Held online - live by interactive video.


The CXR is the most frequently requested imaging investigation in hospital medicine. Despite this, many doctors lack the necessary confidence when interpreting CXRs.

Whatever your specialty - doctors, nurses or acute care practitioners - this one-day course will help you with accurate CXR interpretation.

The teaching format is based on short lectures, interactive tutorials and the opportunity for you to analyse sets of images accessed via your own computer.
