Fundamental Skills in CT for Radiographers

Hybrid Course 


This CT course for Radiographers combines 2x single day live interactive study days (Parts 1 and 2) together with an e-learning programme and support.


E-learning can be completed at the delegates' own pace and will be available between the first and second study days, thereby reinforcing the building blocks of knowledge gained from the study day components.

Access to e-learning is via our dedicated e-learning tool. The e-learning requires approximately 2 to 3 hours to complete.


Course Focus


This course focusses on clinical scenario based learning to support application of theory to clinical practice, improving fundamental clinical skills in CT. It is suitable for Radiographers who are relatively new to CT or who want a refresher. A few weeks experience in the department prior to the course is beneficial, but not essential.




Delivered by Radiographers and other medical imaging professionals, for Radiographers, the live interactive study days feature polling, discussion and breakout areas*

Study day and e-learning access will require a PC/Mac or tablet (Apple or Android). Integral webcam and microphone is preferable for the study day component although mobile dial in audio is supported.

All aspects explained really well. Applications and parameters of the scanner now make sense

Liz and Edward were very approachable. Felt no pressure. Explained with examples and drawings. Included us in group discussion. Great session!

Sarmita R.  Fundamental Skills in MRI Course


I have worked in MRI for about 1.5 years now and this course has been very beneficial so far. It has helped to understand the equipment better and to be less afraid of playing with parameters within reasonable limits

Madara D.  Fundamental Skills in MRI Course


I just want to say thankyou to Liz and Edward for this fantastic course. You were very thorough and covered the majority of the areas a newbie into MRI like myself found very overwhelming and daunting when I initially tried studying the physics aspect on my own. So once again, thank you both very much
