The Norwich Image Interpretation Course is aimed primarily at radiographers who provide a "red dot" or "commenting" service to A&E, however it will also benefit those keen to revise their image interpretation skills. Each module covers a particular anatomical area, and both the appendicular and axial skeleton are covered. Relevance to the paediatric skeleton is included in each section.

The course has now received accreditation by the Society of Radiographers, and can be used in your SOR portfolio.

The course is designed to outline:

It is hoped that by reading through each module and referring to the associated images provided, the user will become more accurate in their interpretation skills, so giving a high quality service to clinician and patient.

At the end of each module there is an online self-test which is designed to assess the concepts previously taught. There is a facility to log in when taking the self tests in order to access your own personal score and assess your progress. This score will be updated each time you log on and use the self test facility. There is no charge for using this, and your details and score will be kept confidential. Once you have scored 95% within each module, you are able to print out a certificate from the website.
