  1. Engage in the diagnostic process using orthopedic imaging procedures when appropriate to establish differential diagnoses.
  2. Decide the most appropriate musculoskeletal imaging procedure according to the client presentation and the current best evidence for diagnosis.
  3. Determine the most appropriate radiographic views according to client presentation, current best evidence for diagnosis, and current best evidence for reducing ionizing radiation exposure.
  4. Describe a systematic approach to the analysis of plain film radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography and determine the relevance of visualized pathology to clinical decision-making.
  5. Use evidence-based diagnostic imaging procedures as appropriate to help determine the client who would benefit from physical therapy interventions and the client who requires referral for medical services.
  6. Review diagnostic test studies on musculoskeletal imaging according to evidence-based criteria for validity, including an explanation of radiographic clinical decision rules for orthopedic pathology related to the spine and extremities.
  7. Understand basic & advanced concepts of musculoskeletal image acquisition and interpretation.

What our patients say about us

One of best course for physiotherapists to read and interpretation of radiology films. Dr prabhu sir explained very well with 2D and 3D pics with basics of anatomy . The best thing about course is scheduling the classes and giving time to understand more . I recommend this course for every physiotherapist if you are not good at evaluation of radiology films.
