What this Module Involves
To begin with, we go through the general principles of the various imaging types: X-rays, CT scans, MRI and ultrasound and what each imaging modality is usually used for. Here we cover the advantages and risks of each imaging type.
This goes through chest x-rays and how to present them in a systematic way using the ABCDE approach. We then go through different cases applying this method like consolidation patterns, fibrosis, lung collapse, lines and pneumothorax.
Once we have a grounding with chest X-rays, we use a similar approach for abdominal films. We use a systematic method called BBC and then cover common cases like bowel obstruction, inflammatory bowel disease and volvulus.
This section again uses a similar approach, this time on X-rays of the limbs. Example cases here include fractures of the upper and lower limb, degenerative joint conditions, arthritis and osteoporosis. These films are what one would commonly see in A&E.
A modality that is now so important, we go through CT heads using a structured approach called BCBVB. This allows us to interpret common cases. This includes the various types of intracranial bleeds, hydrocephalus, strokes and tumours.
