Learning outcomes

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

  • a comprehensive understanding of spinal pathology in both specialist and district general settings;
  • improved skills in interpreting emergency spine pathology;
  • a more in-depth understanding of both routine and complex chronic spine abnormalities;
  • learned tips and tricks to avoid common misses and pick up on subtle abnormalities, particularly in relation to topics that are often inconsistently reported;
  • a greater appreciation – through collaborative discussion – of issues relating to spinal intervention

Course highlights

  • Faculty of Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologists, Neuroradiologists and Spinal Surgeons who are experts in their fields and from different hospitals in the UK
  • Visiting lecturer Dr Matthew Maeder (Assistant Professor) at the Boston University Medical Center Department of Radiology
  • Interactive case-based approach on iMac workstations to maximise learning, providing around 100 cases for you to interpret, and giving you immediate feedback following each case
  • Excellent peer interaction and collaborative learning with 2 delegates per iMac workstation and a strict limit on the number of delegates


In each session, the session lead:

  • provides a brief introduction, including checklists and top-tips
  • takes delegates –working in pairs– through a series of challenging cases, providing immediate feedback after each case and take-home messages at the end of the session.
