FY1 On Call Online Teaching Series


This online teaching was inspired by the teaching we have been doing on the wards with our new foundation doctors recently. We noticed it can be a bit of a scary concept to be presented with an abdominal x-ray at 3am with no report.

Via mock cases, the teaching programme will comprise of teaching on interpretation of: 

Chest x-rays

Abdominal x-rays 



Hip/ Knee / other joint x-rays

Example session layout:

Introduction to the patient. History and examination findingsIndications for a chest x-ray and portable chest x-ray

What to write when requesting the image What to say to the radiographers if you require an immediate x-ray such as a portable x-ray due to the patient being unstable

How to read a chest x-ray through a systemic A-E approachImages of normal x-rays

Images of abnormal x-rays with the most common abnormalities you will come across such as pneumothorax, pleural effusion, cardiomegaly, checking NGT location etc

Going through other quicker cases together in a quiz style Q&A about the session and anything foundation years related

These sessions will be approximately 30-45 minutes with a 10 minute Q&A, once a week on Microsoft teams.

The sessions will run on 28/9/22, 06/10/22, 13/10/22, 20/10/22, 27/10/22 starting at 6.30pm – covering different topics in each session.
