The Radiographic Reporting programme offers a depth and scope of knowledge, which incorporates a high level of clinical skill in the practice of image evaluation and reporting of the skeletal system. The modules fully integrate theoretical knowledge with practical skill, facilitating your development as a competent and reflective practitioner.
The programme incorporates key lectures and guided work-based learning, along with practice assessment, evaluation and report writing for radiographic images of the skeletal system. This programme has significant work-based elements, therefore it is essential you have effective support and mentorship in your base department. The work-based learning component is well structured and monitored by us through clinical visits. The LSBU PACS has a wide range of relevant cases that will supplement work-based experience.
The programme offers the option of pathways in appendicular only or complete skeletal reporting. The five core modules sit within the postgraduate degree scheme and you may undertake the three Year 1 modules alone for appendicular only (PgCert) or the remaining two modules for the PgDip.
We have a highly motivated team of in-house and guest specialists from a variety of hospitals, with over 14 years experience successfully delivering the Radiographic Reporting programme.
