Image Interpretation CPD renamed Clinical Imaging

New name to better reflect the scope and nature of the resource

Published: 19 February 2021 CPD

Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme, Image Interpretation, has been renamed Clinical Imaging to reflect the scope and nature of the resource more accurately.

The programme has been developed in partnership with the Society of Radiographers

Dorothy Keane, Clinical Lead for Clinical Imaging, said: ‘When I became clinical lead for the programme we could not have envisaged how successful the programme would be and how demand for sessions would grow exponentially to encompass all modalities and topics such as research in radiography, dementia, dignity, personalising care, orthopaedics and interventional procedures.

‘The programme now has almost 500 sessions covering radiography, ultrasound, CT, MRI, fluoroscopy and nuclear medicine.

‘With such growth we have outgrown our original scale and intentions and feel renaming the programme as Clinical Imaging is important to accurately reflect our broader scope and aims.’

The Clinical Imaging team will continue to provide free resources for colleagues working in clinical imaging as well as other healthcare professionals and will develop new e-learning sessions to reflect changes in imaging and the wider NHS.
