Producing high quality diagnostic radiographs is an essential skill for any member of the practice team but vet nurses are commonly the ones to take on the responsibility. This highly practical and interactive one-day course will cover everything from setting up the room and top tips on patient positioning through to how to identify when a radiograph is diagnostic and how to know when it needs to be re-taken.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Radiation safety and appropriate legislation
  • How to get the best image quality
  • Practical session on positioning
  • Practical film reading – recognising image faults and artefacts and case presentations to identify scenarios requiring immediate intervention
