Why should I take this course?

This micro skills course from the College of Radiographers will look at the interstitial pattern of opacification which is commonly seen in chest radiographs. The anatomy and physiology of the lung interstitium will be presented. This will be correlated with the clinical and radiological features associated with common interstitial lung diseases, and other processes, which give rise to an interstitial pattern on chest radiograph.
