With radiology imaging increasing at about 4 per cent a year, so too is demand for health professionals with the skills to understand radiologists' reports.

"Newly qualified doctors and allied health professionals are exposed to a very limited amount of radiology training throughout their education. But with an improvement in the delivery of reports and increasing access to online imaging, it's becoming more important that these professionals have a grasp of image interpretation," says Dr Drew McMenamin, principal radiologist with Lightbox Radiology Education.

It's knowledge that is particularly important in rural locations, where fewer radiology facilities mean a basic understanding of reports and X-rays is vital.

This popular 1½-day course covers acquisition, normal variations, disease patterns, and pitfalls in CT imaging. It's suitable for health professionals in allied health through to surgeons.
