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, Radiological Technologists 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
• Provide information on the clinical assessment, radiography and image interpretation of each anatomical area.

Evaluation Method

Online tests

Intended For

Healthcare professionals in medical radiation sciences
