  • Case based learning with short introductory lectures, offering guidance and practical knowledge
  • Interactive discussions, what is relevant and significant, tips and take home messages that will change your interpreting practice

The Course will assist the Intensivist

  • to understand how radiological investigations can best be used to assist in the management of critically ill patients (covering head and spine, chest, abdomen)
  • to interpret radiological investigations performed on critically ill patients to acquire a systematic approach to image interpretation
  • to understand what not to miss and why, including life threatening problems, and common errors to avoid 
  • to know what investigation to ask from the Radiologists and when to ask for help!
  • to understand the key guidelines and protocols
  • to understand the roles, advantages, disadvantages of modalities, i.e. Plain XR, US, CT and MR

Course aim and learning outcomes

To provide the busy, ‘hands-on’ Consultant Intensivist with a practical, stimulating and comprehensive update on imaging interpretation and reporting:

  1. practical (workstation based learning);
  2. stimulating (interactive, high tutor-delegate ratio, challenging, real-life cases, immediate feedback); and
  3. comprehensive (head, chest and abdomen).

By the end of the course, the delegate will have:

  1. a comprehensive understanding of good/best imaging interpretation and reporting practice in intensive care;
  2. improved imaging interpretation and reporting skills;
  3. greater confidence in advanced practice; and
  4. identified skills and knowledge gaps, if any, relevant to his/her practice, and clear ways by which these can be addressed.
