This subject considers the diagnostic interpretation of plain radiographic images of the axial skeleton. The subject discusses image evaluation, the imaging appearances of normal axial skeleton anatomy and common variations and an in-depth appreciation of the broad range of bone, joint and soft tissue appearances of common types of abnormality. Students will not be capable of giving a differential diagnostic opinion of abnormalities but will be able to give informed radiographic opinions within the scope of professional and legal codes of conduct.
