About the course

  • For all consultant radiologists. More and more consultant radiologists are now required to be on call. This new Infomed course provides a practical and comprehensive review of the more challenging cases faced by the on-call Radiologist.
  • The Course Faculty. An outstanding Faculty of senior and young Consultant Radiologists, and senior STs, all with three or more years of on-call experience, and experienced also
    in disseminating skills and practical knowledge to peers.
  • Sessions over two days. These include: Acute Chest; Aortic and Vascular; Abdo Solid Organ; Bowel and Pelvis; Abdo Post-Op; Neuroradiology; and Paediatrics.
  • Practical. Case by case tasked-based learning, workstation-based and interactive, covering a full range of on-call imaging topics, with challenging cases.
  • Workstation-based interactive learning:
    — workstation based-learning (OsiriX on iMac) with delegates working in pairs for interactive learning; and
    — reporting ‘check lists’ and guidance what to look for and why, top tips and common errors to avoid, practical feedback, highlighting specific learning points.

Learning outcomes

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

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

Course highlights

  • Faculty of practicing consultant radiologists, experts in their fields, with extensive experience in advancing the abdominal and pelvic MRI skills of peers nationally and internationally.
  • No didactic lectures – practical course, just workstation based cases and teaching pearls.
  • Comprehensive – covering a full range of abdominal and pelvic imaging topics.
  • True peer interaction/learning – 2 attendees per iMac workstation and a limited number of delegates.
  • Stimulating, interactive, challenging cases, and very importantly, immediate feedback with around 100 cases to interpret and report.
