Aims to provide a primer for dealing with non-traumatic bone lesions. Each subject will be introduced with a short overview of typical imaging features, followed by the review of multiple cases of the same pathology in its various guises. The differential diagnosis will be outlined. This course aims to give a grounding in how to approach bone lesions for all specialities loking at bone radiographs.
The main emphasis will be on radiographic appearances but other imaging modalities will be included. The lectures will be delivered by doctors working in a specialist bone tumour centre.
TARGET AUDIENCE: The course is suitable for all specialities dealing with bone radiographs: doctors, radiographers, nurses and physiotherapists.
