We are running a MRI IOFB course on Thursday 12th April 2018 at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • The Sheffield protocol and system: artefact or IOFB?
  • IRMER guidelines for requesting and interpretation
  • IOFB radiographic technique and image evaluation
