As specialists in emergency reporting, Everlight was proud to support Radiopaedia’s Trauma Radiology Course, which took place on the 15th of April at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney.

Hosted by consultant radiologists Dr Andrew Dixon and Dr Craig Hacking, the course was a case based review of trauma radiology. The interactive course covered important injuries on x-ray and CT and how to avoid common interpretation pitfalls. It is ideal for health professionals (doctors and non-doctors) involved in the care of trauma patients.

Everlight also supported Radiopaedia’s Neuroradiology Review in 2017 and will also be supporting its Emergency Radiology course in Brisbane later this year.
