Welcome to Radiology (4.25 CME)
What if you can take a look at a Chest Xray, a brain MRI, or an abdominal CT and know what you are looking at before the final radiology read?! In this course, we will cover all the common radiological basics that you should know while looking at the common exams done in the hospital on a daily basis. From Brain MRI, to Chest Xray, to Chest CT and every thing in between. You will first learn how to create an approach to read these radiological exams appropriately and then put it into practice while reviewing real life case images. We will cover all the common cases that present to the hospital on a daily basis and learn how and what to look for on the images. This course is taught by a full-time practicing radiologist. The course duration is 4 hours and 15 minutes and by the end of this course, you should have an excellent basis of knowledge on what the radiologists look for while reading the different radiological exams and how to make a diagnosis based on the presented images.
