The Image Interpretation e-learning project, also known as Interpretation of Radiological Images (e-IRI), is being developed by the Society and College of Radiographers, in collaboration with the Health Education England (HEE) award-winning e-Learning for Healthcare programme which may be accessed here.
Image Interpretation is available to a wide range of health professionals including radiographers, doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, helping to ensure they are all working to nationally agreed standards, and ultimately delivering high quality patient care.
The College of Radiographers has created a national syllabus for image interpretation against which core training will be delivered across the NHS.
Image Interpretation provides a structured syllabus to support radiographers and other health professionals to interpret x-rays as part of their role in the clinical setting.
The current and planned e-learning provide a national syllabus in basic image interpretation to support radiographers and other health professionals with interpreting and offering reports on plain x-rays (adult and paediatric - appendicular and axial skeleton; abdomen and chest); cross-sectional imaging in neuro emergency (CT and MRI) and MRI (musculoskeletal); ultrasound imaging (gynaecological, abdominal, men's health, vascular, musculoskeletal, paediatric, head and neck and obstetrics); breast imaging (multi-modality); gastro-intestinal (GI) and genito-urinary (GU) imaging; nuclear medicine imaging; and, cardiac imaging; with additional modules relating to forensic radiography and an introduction to imaging technologies.
