Designed in a systematic learning format, the course covers imaging basics, normal anatomy, pathology and approach to interpretation of patterns of disease in the cerebrum, cerebellum, brainstem, skull, dura and spine. Each module is composed of a didactic lecture followed by an interactive session. In the interactive session, delegates will review cases on PACS workstations alone or in groups of 2-3, to reinforce fundamental principles of imaging interpretation.
Lightbox Radiology Education courses include a variety of interactive sessions to cement the learning objectives. Our materials are both Mac and PC compatible and it is recommended that you bring your own laptop to your course or arrange to share a laptop with a friend during the interactive sessions.
