Make the most of your imaging equipment to increase your diagnostic accuracy and confidence for every single case.
Musculoskeletal radiography may seem easy, but this comprehensive course will take your understanding of skeletal imaging and pathology to a new level.
As well as conventional radiography, we will introduce ultrasound, CT and MRI where appropriate, as these modalities are becoming increasingly critical for mapping disease processes and understanding abnormalities of the skeletal and nervous systems. CT, in particular, is useful for unravelling mysteries of structures with complex anatomy, such as the skull.
This course is part of our year-long Diagnostic Imaging Program which has been broken down into 3 more manageable parts: Abdominal, Musculoskeletal and Thoracic Imaging.
Each is a discrete unit on its own but together they form a formidable Imaging educational program. The introductory imaging module is completed only once when you enrol in the first unit; units may be completed in any order.
The other units are:
Musculoskeletal Imaging is for you if you’re keen on:
Reviewing your knowledge of musculoskeletal anatomy and pathophysiology
Improving your ability to detect and diagnose osteochondral disease in the shoulder, stifle or tibiotarsal joint
Furthering your knowledge of developmental and degenerative types of orthopaedic disease
Improving your ability to differentiate benign from malignant bone and joint disease
Understanding the role alternate imaging modalities such as ultrasound, nuclear medicine, CT and MRI can play in investigating elbow dysplasias, shoulder tendinopathies and complex traumas
Not convinced you need this course?
By successfully completing this course, you will:
Improve your radiologic expertise as it applies to radiography of musculoskeletal structures
Increase your understanding of the comparative radiographic appearance of aggressive and benign bone disease
Be able to evaluate radiographic changes that involve joints of the axial and appendicular skeleton
Understand when advanced imaging studies such as CT and MRI are more useful than routine survey radiography
- Compulsory Introductory Module*
The Appendicular Skeleton
The Axial Skeleton
*The introductory module is a pre-requirement for each imaging course (Thoracic, Abdominal, Musculoskeletal). If you complete the introductory module in one of the courses, you will not be required to complete it again should you register for one of the other imaging courses.
This online course comes with:
A set of detailed written notes, images and videos
Self-assessed quizzes to test your knowledge and understanding
A discussion forum for conversation, debate and sharing cases with your peers and tutors
A monthly assignment based on case studies and technical skills. Individual feedback and explanations will be provided by your tutors
A 1 day workshop to put into practice the knowledge you have gained by working through case studies and technical skills
