Topics covered in this course include:

  • Brain imaging in NAI/SPA

Now in its eighth year, this Study Day embraces current developments in the field of suspected Non-Accidental Injury/Suspected Physical Abuse imaging and joint publication by the Society and College of Radiographers and Royal College of Radiologists. It is designed to meet the specific needs of radiographers, with a "hands-on" approach to consolidate and extend the knowledge and skills required to act effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary team that deals with such cases.

Delivered by a former paediatric superintendent radiographer, now an experienced UWE Bristol senior lecturer alongside local dedicated paediatric radiographers and specialists (radiology, neuroradiology, and emergency department consultants), a variety of different teaching will be used, with all sessions utilising digital images and Learnpads. Practical workshops led by clinical staff will be available in the x-ray room during lunch.

This course is CPD endorsed by the College of Radiographers.
