The Oswestry spinal imaging course, sponsored by Fujifilm, has been held at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital (RJAH) in Shropshire.

The two-day course at the Institute of Orthopaedics conference centre consisted of clinically based lectures and interactive case-based discussions.  It utilised various imaging modalities and their application in a range of pathological scenarios to facilitate problem solving in the spine and was specially designed for specialist registrars and consultant radiologists.  Topics covered included normal variants in spinal imaging, degenerative disc disease, spinal infection and non-infective inflammatory disease, sports and overuse injuries in the young along with spinal cord and meninges.

Fujifilm marketing manager Ben Cole said: “The course was highly successful and we were pleased to be a part of the event.  The varieties of topics covered were vast and included spinal tumours, vertebral collapse, spinal stenosis, marrow disease, spinal intervention and scoliosis.  Lectures and discussions were diverse, lively and informative.”
