Preliminary clinical evaluation in MRI: Part 1 10 Oct 2020

Preliminary clinical evaluation in MRI: Part 1 - Saturday 10 October 
Preliminary clinical evaluation in MRI: Part 2 - Saturday 24 October 

Due to the remote nature of many static departments and the mobile service, many MRI radiographers rarely see a radiologist or gain feedback on scans and reports. This two part video aimed at radiographers, offers an overview of interpreting MR images of the spine (part 1) and brain (part 2). It provides a review of normal and abnormal appearances that will help radiographers ensure that they are providing the necessary images for the radiologists and correct demonstration of the area. The video covers how to identify red flag symptoms, manage urgent findings and when to escalate.

It is sponsored by InHealth and is run in association with Canterbury Christ Church University College.
