Please arrive at 8:30am for registration and networking. The workshop will commence promptly at 9:00am.

DiTP is designed for junior doctors, international medical graduates and trainees working in hospital and community settings.

Accurate interpretation of XRs is an essential skill in the acutely ill patient in order to institute timely and effective treatment. This workshop will explore imaging in common emergency presentations, including xray of the chest and limbs.

This is designed as a workshop-style program, organised around case studies to maximise audience participation, and enhance understanding of the subject. While the focus is on plain imaging, there will also be some coverage on CT imaging (head). You will have the opportunity to test your XR interpretation skills and learn the common pitfalls in emergency XR interpretation.
