This two day course is aimed at paediatric physiotherapists with a special interest in
musculoskeletal medicine and/or orthopaedics. It will cover basic physics and background
information to enable the safe and effective ordering of plain film x-ray images focusing on the
lower limb. This will include a systematic approach to the interpretation of normal films to
provide a framework for interpretation of images for orthopaedic pathologies.
