Course content

The course offers knowledge and expertise to enable qualified healthcare professionals to carry out clinical image reporting tasks in their workplace, acting as autonomous professionals.

The number of healthcare professions using images in their work has increased over recent years and there are many groups who would like the ability to interpret films. The course aims to equip you to meet the ever-changing needs of this fast-developing sector. Because the modules are validated by the Society of Radiographers, access to a clinical department and a radiological mentor is required.
