Image analysis is becoming a skill used by a range of allied healthcare professions outside of the radiology department and for radiographers there is a move within imaging departments to replace the old ‘red dot' system with radiographic commenting.
This self-guided course offers a practical introduction to analysis of radiographic images by assimilating information and formulating clinical opinion through diagnostic reasoning and interpretation of radiographic appearances.
The outcomes of this course have been considered to ensure that you develop and enhance your skills in the radiographic image interpretation of the upper and lower limb as well as your competency in evaluating and analysing radiographic appearances. This course will not enable you to formally report upon images. Reporting of radiographic images is beyond the remit of this course as this requires intensive training and legally cannot be undertaken by anyone not formally trained to do so. You must work within your scope of practice and abide by any professional and regulatory requirements.

Though open to anyone, this short course is ideally suited to radiographers and Allied Health Professional's (AHP) who work with radiographs and would like to improve their image viewing skills. It will be of particular interest to people in roles such as:

Michael Donohoe, MBA
I chose to study online because of the flexibility. The ability to work out of hours and over weekends meant that the impact at work and home was kept to a bare minimum. I would not have been able to study any other way.
I feel that my personal approach in business is much more 'holistic' as a result of my studies at the University of Derby Online Learning. I feel much more confident as a person; it’s a great feeling.
