About the course

Course aim

To provide Consultant Radiologists with a practical, stimulating and comprehensive update on advanced interpretation and reporting practice in abdominal pelvic MRI:

  • practical (workstation based learning);
  • stimulating (interactive, challenging cases, immediate feedback); and
  • comprehensive (covering a full range of abdominal and pelvic imaging topics).

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, the attendee will have:

  • a comprehensive understanding of best practice in advanced abdominal pelvic MRI interpretation and reporting;
  • improved body MRI interpretation and reporting skills;
  • greater confidence in his/her advanced practice; and
  • identified skills and knowledge gaps, if any, relevant to his/her practice, and clear ways by which these can be addressed.

Course highlights

  • Faculty of practicing consultant radiologists, experts in their fields, with extensive experience in advancing the abdominal and pelvic MRI skills of peers nationally and internationally.
  • No didactic lectures – practical course, just workstation based cases and teaching pearls.
  • Comprehensive – covering a full range of abdominal and pelvic imaging topics.
  • True peer interaction/learning – 2 attendees per iMac workstation and a limited number of delegates
  • Stimulating, interactive, challenging cases, and very importantly, immediate feedback with around 100 cases to interpret and report
  •
