Dr Amaka Offiah

Dr Amaka Offiah is a Reader in Paediatric MSK Imaging at University of Sheffield, and an Honorary Consultant Paediatric Radiologist at Sheffield Children's Hospital. She obtained her MBBS while working at Oldchurch Hospital, Essex and trained as a radiologist in Sheffield. She moved back to London, to Great Ormond Street Hospital and the Institute of Child Health, where she obtained a PhD for her thesis, “Optimisation of the digital radiographic imaging of suspected non-accidental injury”, then returned to Sheffield as a HEFCE-funded Clinical Senior Lecturer in the Academic Unit of Child Health. Her research interests are in the imaging of suspected child abuse and skeletal dysplasias and in methods of determining which children have fragile bones prone to fracture and which do not. Amaka lectures regularly on various radiology, paediatric, genetic, emergency medicine and orthopaedic courses, locally and nationally. She has contributed chapters to several well-respected radiology textbooks, and is co-author of two books, “A Radiological Atlas of Child Abuse” and “Fetal and Perinatal Skeletal Dysplasias: An Atlas of Multimodality Imaging”.

About the course

  • Provides the Consultant Radiologist with a practical and comprehensive case based update on the interpretation and reporting of general paed radiology as well as of suspected inflicted injuries.
  • Takes delegates –working in pairs– through an intensive series of challenging cases with immediate feedback after each case
  • Short introductory lectures, offering guidance, practical knowledge, what not to miss and how
  • Faculty of Consultant Paediatric Radiologists who are experts in their fields and from different hospitals in the UK
  • Numbers strictly limited; interactive case-based approach on iMac workstations to maximise learning. Excellent peer interaction and collaborative learning with 2 delegates per iMac workstation.
  • Interactive discussions, trauma and non-trauma cases, what is relevant and significant, and take home messages that will change your reporting practice

By the end of the series participants will have

  • An in-depth understanding of best practice and how senior experts address these problems in terms of specific instances and cases
  • Been able to raise their own queries or uncertainties
  • Greater confidence in their own practice when faced with similar clinical dilemmas
  • Identified gaps in their own skills or knowledge which can then be addressed
  • Had an instructive and engaging educational experience

Comments from delegates who attended the previous courses:

  • Excellent overview of paediatric imaging

  • I liked the interactive format and having time to look at cases and formulate  opinion

  • Good coverage of subjects

  • Workstation based and excellent presentations

  • Found the range of topics covered very good for my own practice. Good mix of cases and rarer conditions to bear in mind.

  • Very helpful overview of topics presented, particularly those which are uncommon in general hospital

  • Lectures and time keeping – well timed

  • Very important as my role is changing.  It highlighted my deficiencies as I am having to do more paediatrics with no one to ask questions; this gave me confidence!

  • Had refreshed my paediatric knowledge and provided a few tips to use in general practice

  • Good coverage of subject, comprehensive, nice cases, practical tips – well done!

  • Medico-Legal aspect.  Excellent to have controversial cases and legal advice overview

  • Running through cases independently  and discussing with colleague was very good, helpful and gave me more confidence

  • Knowledgeable and enthusiastic lecturers

  • Good organisation and well timed

  • Will be more confident in interpreting NAI

  • More confidence if asked to be professional witness in court

  • I will be more confident in producing a report as a general radiologist
