About the course
We will cover the practical physics of radiography, and why grasping this can help improve image quality. Topics will include the benefits of using grids and why distance is so important; commonly seen artefacts with a selection of example images; a refresher on positioning for thoracic and abdominal radiographs; and then critical evaluation of a wide range of example images. Course Objectives
•To improve your knowledge of the practical physics of radiography, and discuss how this can help your imaging.
•To better understand how the equipment works (including basic fault finding) •Critically examine example a selection of sample images; specifically recognizing, interpreting and resolving errors of acquisition
•Ensure a general understanding of thoracic, abdominal, spinal and appendicular imaging
•Openly discuss ideas for improving your radiographic images The day will be informal and relaxed, with the opportunity for case discussion.
Arrive for tea and coffee from 9am, ready to begin the lecture at 9.30am. We’ll aim to finish by 5.00pm. This will count for 6 hours of CPD. Places are limited to a maximum of 20 delegates so book your place early to avoid disappointment. Course notes, refreshments and lunch will be provided.
