Image interpretation (Preliminary Clinical Evaluation)

Guidelines from the College of Radiographers (UK) recommend that the findings of all diagnostic imaging examinations are reported timely and accurately to influence clinical management effectively.

Abnormality detection systems in radiography such as the red dot scheme have existed in the UK since the 1980s to aid patient triage. Provision of a PCE (preliminary clinical evaluation) is now recommended where radiographers provide a brief description of imaging findings to the referrer when an immediate definitive report is unavailable. A key skill for many healthcare practitioners is therefore to accurately interpret medical imaging which has a significant impact on service delivery.

Our preliminary clinical evaluation course is available online or as campus attendance. It is primarily aimed at health professionals working and evaluating images in a trauma setting, although it is suitable as an introduction to x-ray film interpretation in other clinical settings.

The sessions will be a largely film based series of interactive workshops concentrating on trauma appearances of the appendicular skeleton. On successful completion of the course, a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certificate will be issued by the Faculty.

  • The course usually starts in February each year and is run over 4 months with 1 day of teaching each month
