Image Interpretation

The Image Interpretation e-learning project, also known as Interpretation of Radiological Images (e-IRI), is being developed by the Society and College of Radiographers, in collaboration with the Health Education England (HEE) award-winning e-Learning for Healthcare programme.

Image Interpretation was launched at the UK Radiological Congress in Birmingham in June 2010.

image2.jpgThe current and planned e-learning provide a national syllabus in basic image interpretation to support radiographers and other health professionals with interpreting and offering reports on plain x-rays (adult and paediatric - appendicular and axial skeleton; abdomen and chest); cross-sectional imaging in neuro emergency (CT and MRI) and MRI (musculoskeletal); ultrasound imaging (gynaecological, abdominal, men's health, vascular, musculoskeletal, paediatric, head and neck and obstetrics); breast imaging (multi-modality); gastro-intestinal (GI) and genito-urinary (GU) imaging; nuclear medicine imaging; and, cardiac imaging; with additional modules relating to forensic radiography and an introduction to imaging technologies.

The e-learning has been written by senior practitioners and university lecturers. All of the material has been approved by the College of Radiographers and a certificate is awarded on completion of each course (a group of sessions). All learning undertaken can be recorded in CPD portfolios for professional accreditation and regulatory (HCPC) CPD purposes.

In a recent study [1], the e-learning was shown to improve the chest x-ray interpretation skills of medical students in preparation for their postgraduate training.
