Learner Outcomes

Radiological technologists learn to recognize pathologies as they gain more experience in a clinical setting, and as the radiographer role continues to grow. With the implementation of radiographer abnormality detection schemes (RADS) or “red-dot systems” in countries such as the UK, RTs have an opportunity to expand their knowledge and understanding of the images they produce. This course will introduce the concept of “red dot systems”, provide the MRT (R) with a systematic method for reviewing radiographs, and will provide information on the clinical assessment, radiography and image interpretation of each anatomical area.
