Preliminary clinical evaluation in MRI 2021: Part 2 20 Nov 2021

This is a recording of Part Two of our two-part event, 'Preliminary clinical evaluation in MRI 2021'.


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, virtual event aimed at radiographers, offered an overview of interpreting MR images of the spine (part 1) and brain (part 2). It provided 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 events also covered how to identify red flag symptoms, manage urgent findings and when to escalate.


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


Educational aims:

  • To understand the clinical indications for MR of the spine and brain, including the red flag symptoms to look for and the appearances to escalate
  • To understand the rationale for the choice of pulse sequence when imaging spine and brain
  • To recognise key anatomy and common pathologies seen in the spine and brain
  • To become familiar with the terminology used in preliminary clinical evaluation of images
