X-Ray - Chest and Emergency Interpretation

About this course

Course cost: $400

A comprehensive review of the fundamental principles of chest and emergency X-Ray interpretation.

Despite the technological advancements in medical imaging, the chest X-Ray remains the most frequently requested radiological investigation, and one of, if not the most difficult to interpret correctly. Our 'Combined Chest X-Ray and Emergency X-Ray Interpretation' course provides a comprehensive review of the fundamental principles in chest and emergency X-Ray interpretation. Interactive multimedia live group sessions are undertaken with lectures. The goal of the course is to provide practitioners with the confidence to recognise a normal chest X-Ray, common patterns of disease and to recognise radiographic patterns of trauma and injury commonly encountered for each body area. All lectures are presented by radiologists, specialists in the field of medical imaging.

Niseko Course Information:

Niseko has exploded in popularity with Australian skiers and boarders over the past decade. Located on the western coast of the island of Hokkaido, Niseko is widely known as having a huge and very reliable snowfall, and usually, light, extremely dry powder snow.

Hirafu Village is positioned at the entry point to the Niseko ski regions of Annupuri, Niseko Village and Grand Hirafu (Hirafu and Hanazono). The resort offers a large range of accommodation from traditional pensions to luxury apartments, plus some of the best après-ski restaurants and nightlife in Hokkaido.
