Spinal MRI Course

Module 1: How To Use MRI Software to View Images of the Spine

We will teach you how using a PC you will be able load any MRI CD. We will also teach you the navigation tools that come with the self loading software on the MRI CD’s and we will cover the gold standard software (for the layman) using MAC’s as well as cloud based systems.

Module 2: Understanding Spinal MRI Views (Sagittal, Parasagittal, Axial) and Sequences (T1, T2, STIR)

This webinar will give you an understanding of the common terminology contained in MRI radiology reports of the spine. You will become familiar with the different views (sagittal, axial, coronal) and sequences (T1, T2, STIR), what they are and are not useful for, and in what circumstances you might need to specify them to be included in any MRI referrals you request.

Module 3: Understanding The Basics of Viewing Spinal MRI’s – An ABC Approach

In module 3 you will learn how to systematically go through a spinal MRI scan, using our “ABC (DEF)” approach, in order to ensure you don’t miss essential pathology that could make the difference to a patient’s management. To View a sample video click here.

Module 4: Understanding Spinal MRI Pathology

Having taken you through what we consider to be the 4 core modules required to appreciate the basic structures and features of spinal MRI, in this extended Case Study webinar we will present numerous (more) examples where suboptimal MRI reporting could have potential lead to long delays in appropriate interventions, incorrect or necessary treatment or surgery. We will also dispel a few myths such as the popular misconception that X-rays are all that are required to diagnose spinal problems. By understanding how and when these loop wholes can occur you will be far better equipped to spot them in your clinical practise and gain the appropriate confidence to assist your clients with remedial steps.

MRI Course For Physiotherapists

Module 6: Correlating MRI with Clinical Findings & Using MRI to Guide Patient Management

MRI reports (i.e. from the radiologist) are usually written with from the perspective of whether an invasive procedure might be required to ease the patient’s pain (injection or surgery). However, MRI scans and the images they produce can also provide invaluable insights that will help manual / physical therapists determine the best treatment techniques and advice to provide so their patients achieve optimum outcomes The first key step in this process is identifying potential pain sources and prioritising what may and may not be relevant. We will provide you with a framework for making this assessment and illustrate plenty of example where MRI has lead to successful patient outcomes that would not otherwise have been achieved without careful scrutiny of the MRI images and correlation with the signs and symptoms presented by the patient6
