Reporting - Radiographic Appearances of Musculoskeletal Pathophysiology and Trauma 15 Credits at SCQF Level 11

1. Overview

In relation to patho-physiological appearances on diagnostic images of the appendicular and axial musculo-skeletal systems, this module will enable you to develop skills in appraisal and communicate patho-physiological and trauma related findings, relative to the clinical presentation of the patient; critically assess the factors involved in pattern recognition, image interpretation and the reporting of clinical findings; understand the significance of normal variant appearances.

Using a range of conventional and interactive learning methods, you will develop the knowledge base, interpretive and evaluative skills required for recognition and interpretation of patho−physiological appearances demonstrated on diagnostic images of the appendicular and axial musculo−skeletal systems.

This is a 15 credit module delivered over one semester. It can be taken in conjunction with modules HSM131, HSM133, HSM134 as a route to a PgCert and will be of value to radiographers and other professionals who require to develop a knowledge base related to patho−physiological appearances in conventional diagnostic imaging.

You will be a registered health professional working in a relevant area.
