Get online, get learning with Image Interpretation

Frankie, 8 June 2010

A new and free elearning resource for radiographers and other relevant staff in the NHS was launched this week (Tuesday 8 June 2010) at the UK Radiological Congress in Birmingham.

Image Interpretation has been developed by the College of Radiographers in partnership with elfh. It has been designed to help all those involved in radiography with interpreting plain x-ray images of the adult appendicular and axial skeleton and provide reports.

This innovative resource offers 50 interactive elearning sessions which have been written and reviewed by senior clinicians and university lecturers. Aspects such as anatomy, clinical presentations, fractures, dislocations and pathology are comprehensively covered for each skeletal part.

The interactive sessions feature animation to show how mechanisms of injuries occur and photographs to demonstrate radiographic techniques. X-ray images are included in all sections and self-evaluation exercises are provided to encourage reflection and assess the knowledge gained.

Dorothy Keane, Clinical Project Lead for Image Interpretation, said, ‘We are proud and delighted to launch Image Interpretation. Intuitive and engaging, it is a comprehensive online knowledge base that supports the education and professional development of those working in radiography. The elearning is easy to use and designed to work in harmony with busy working lives. We are confident that Image Interpretation will help to improve radiographic skills and, consequently, help to deliver an enhanced patient service.
