Four new modules added to the Image Interpretation programme

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has worked with the Royal Osteoporosis Society and the Society and College of Radiographers to add new content to the Image Interpretation e-learning programme.

The Image Interpretation programme was designed to support radiographers and other healthcare professionals with interpreting and offering clinical evaluation on radiographs and other imaging modalities.

Four new modules on osteoporosis and fragility fractures have been developed which represent valuable continuing professional development (CPD) for any radiographer working in emergency departments, fracture clinics and reporting plain film imaging of fractures.

They also represent a valuable development opportunity for radiologists who come across opportunities to identify previously unreported vertebral fractures when reporting on scans not directly related to the spine, but where this is still visible, such as CT chest, abdomen and pelvis examinations.

The modules will enable radiographers and reporting clinicians to:

  1. Understand what osteoporosis is and common causes
  2. Recognise a fragility fracture and associated injuries
  3. Understand the importance of reporting vertebral fractures
  4. Increase vertebral fracture identification through audit
