Back to Basics: How to report a chest x-ray

Published: 31 July 2020 X-ray

Following the success of his first live lecture, consultant radiographer Nick Barlow will be holding a new free virtual event on Monday, 17 August at 8pm.

Nick said, "I had a lot of feedback after the reporting pulmonary infections event asking for a basic lecture on chest reporting and so this has been created primarily for student radiographers, but anyone interested is welcome to take part."

Learning outcomes include:

  • Refresh knowledge of key chest anatomy
  • Familiarise yourself with the key review areas
  • Understand appearances of the normal chest
  • Understand the impact of patient position on chest x-ray appearances
  • Familiarise yourself with reporting terminology
  • Learn about the key radiologic manifestations of lung diseases

The lecture is CPD Now endorsed and it is free but delegates are urged to make a contribution to the SoR Benevolent Fund. Donations from the first webinar raised more than £550 and Nick is hoping this event will exceed that amount.

The lecture will be an hour and a half including a 15 minute break and questions. It will not be recorded and will only be available to participants who log-in on the night.

"We are delighted that SoR member, Nick Barlow, has agreed to run this webinar. It is a great CPD opportunity," Charlotte Beardmore, the SoR director of professional policy, said.

"Thank you to Nick giving his time and expertise on this important topic, which will be of interest to radiographers in the UK and worldwide.

"We are also very grateful that he has asked again for voluntary donations to the Benevolent Fund."
