This module is designed for health care professionals with an interest in radiological imaging as part of their practice. The module provides an overview of the role of a variety of imaging modalities in the investigation of pathophysiological processes that affect the musculoskeletal system. It will develop knowledge of patient presentation and aid the referral to appropriate imaging modalities. There will be an emphasis on the image appearances for each imaging modality of normal and the pathological processes upon the musculoskeletal system. The course aims to provide health care professionals with a practical problem-solving approach to making the best use of radiology investigations. The imaging modalities considered include MRI, CT, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound.
You should be a qualified health care professional currently working in an appropriate area of practice.
100% Practical – Narrated recorded presentation of a case study.
The aims of this module are to enable students to...
Enhance their awareness and image recognition of pathological processes of the musculoskeletal system demonstrated on a variety of imaging modalities.
Students will typically...
1. Have a systematic and comprehensive understanding of the imaging modalities available to demonstrate pathologies supplementing plain film imaging in the investigation of the musculoskeletal system.
2. Justify the imaging modalities used to image pathology in relation to the musculoskeletal system.
3. Critically evaluate the impact of current legislation and guidelines specific to diagnostic imaging practice.
4. Analyse and critically evaluate image appearances of a variety of imaging modalities in order to differentiate between normal and pathological appearances of the musculoskeletal system.
Teaching is based on a combination of face to face and on-line lectures, tutorials and small group seminars/workshops. Sessions are both online and at the College Lane Campus and are facilitated by Phillip Regelous.
