About This Course

Clinical Imaging – Learn Online & Get Certification from the College of Radiographers
A course for radiographers, doctors and nurses globally

The Clinical Imaging programme equips you with the skills to interpret radiological images correctly. It is relevant to radiographers, ultrasonographers and other healthcare professionals across the world.

The programme has been developed in the UK by the College of Radiographers and Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare.

A high-quality online radiography course

You can use the sessions to develop your skills in radiography, CT, MRI and ultrasound. There are also sessions on patient care, consent, clinical governance and professional development. The sessions are highly interactive, with images, video clips, animations and self-assessment questions to help embed learning and understanding.

Test your interpretation skills using real clinical data

You can view images from real medical cases and test your interpretation skills. This helps you to better understand the wide-ranging and complex appearances of both normal images and those showing pathology.

The learning content is available online so you can study anywhere, at any time.

Formally endorsed by the UK College of Radiographers

This interactive medical imaging course is formally endorsed for continuing professional development by the UK College of Radiographers (through the ‘CPD Now’ scheme). So, it meets the highest UK quality standards of a leading professional body.

The e-learning sessions are clustered into discrete modules, which are arranged by subject area. Each individual learning session takes around 30 minutes to complete.
