Level 2 Further Skills: MSK Imaging and the Clinical Examination

These Level 2 courses will provide the delegate with further skills and understanding to improve diagnostic imaging use and ensure it is clinically appropriate, thereby supporting the clinical examination. 

The full programme consists of three, live interactive online courses, each dedicated to MSK imaging use in either Upper Limb, Lower Limb or Spine 

The programme follows on from the successful Level 1 MSK Imaging Referral and Interpretation Course.


Level 1 completion prior to Level 2 is not a prerequisite but attendance at either course is based upon your level of experience. Please contact us if you require further information regarding course suitability.


Delivered by a Principal Consultant Osteopath, together with a Senior Radiographer and Post Graduate Lecturer with over twenty years MSK imaging experience, this course features interactive lectures/case workshops with live polling, chat and discussion sessions.


Booking the full course programme will include attendance at each of the subsequent three rolling course dates. The option is also available to book individual courses dependent upon requirement.


Each course will be conducted through the convenience of a live, interactive online platform and delivered over 2xhalf days.


The following topic areas are covered:


  • Imaging methods, techniques, views and image weighting. Capabilities and limitations
  • Surface and Functional anatomy of all major joints relevant to the specific course
  • Appropriate imaging use and image appearances plus implications of unexpected findings
  • Clinical decision making, including how and when to refer for imaging
  • Case study investigation, considering differentials based on presenting clinical history and best practice approaches to management of a variety of conditions.

Really informative and interesting course! Looking forward to part 2

Caroline G.  Fundamental Skills in CT Course


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

Chloe V.  Fundamental Skills in CT Course


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
