Imaging Course

The AHTA is working with the University of Sydney to develop an Imaging course, which we hope to launch in October this year. 

The course will include recorded lectures, three live webinars, and assessment.

Content will incorporate imaging from x-ray, MRI, CT and ultrasound and comprise the whole upper limb with a special focus on the hand, wrist and forearm.

We request members' help to build an image bank for use in teaching and assessing this course.

Consent forms can be found below (scroll down).

Images are required by 14 July 2023.
