Chest X-Ray Interpretation

Chest X-Ray Interpretation

The National Imaging Academy Wales is pleased to present this shared learning resource, a series of learning activities that will share up-to-date learning opportunities through on-line presentations, useful links and case studies.

The presentations will be of interest to all clinicians currently providing care to patients, sometimes beyond their everyday practice at these challenging times.  This includes nurses, doctors, therapists, radiographers and many more so, please feel free to share this link with your colleagues.

The following link provides the user with access to a series of learning material, with a particular focus on chest x-ray interpretation and the presentation of COVID-19 on chest x-rays.

Initial presentations reinforce core clinical knowledge supporting clinicians during the COVID-19 epidemic.  This will build over the upcoming months in response to training needs and to share learning experience from across NHS Wales and other Healthcare organisations.

The series starts with a presentation detailing basic CXR interpretation, including normal anatomy and interpretation of common lung pathology produced by Dr Grant Griffiths, Academy Trainer & Consultant Radiologists CTM UHB.

The second presentation in the series introduces the role of the CXR in the diagnosis of COVID-19 management pathways, the CXR appearances of COVID-19 and the standard reporting structure suggested by the British Society of Thoracic Imaging. Produced by Dr Timothy Pearce, Academy Trainer & Consultant Radiologists CTM UHB.
