MVMPT – CME on Fundamentals of Radiology

MVMPT Animated radiology



What is Radiology?

Radiology in the current times is one of the most essential diagnostic tools for a detailed diagnosis. Radiology is a sequence of multiple tests that help capture images of different body parts. The tests help enable health care practitioners with detailed screening and diagnosis of conditions. 

Imaging techniques that are used to diagnose or treat conditions vary from X-ray radiography, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine including positron emission tomography (PET).


Why is medical imaging important?

Medical imaging is essential to screen, diagnose and track the progress of an ongoing illness. MRIs and CT scans help monitor the effectiveness of the ongoing treatment and help alter protocols as per necessity. Detailed information on the conditions, only helps in understanding it better.

Course description and goals

The course will provide participants with the knowledge, skills, and ability to effectively utilize diagnostic imaging in the management of conditions seen by physiotherapists. The curriculum will emphasize patient safety and a physiotherapist’s accountability to ensure effective and appropriate utilization of diagnostic imaging, and facilitate timely access to diagnostic imaging. The curriculum includes and is not limited to:

  • Understanding imaging technology
  • Patient safety issues and risks when ordering diagnostic imaging
  • Criteria for ordering diagnostic imaging
  • Ethics of the use of diagnostic imaging in physiotherapy practice
  • Using search patterns to understand images
  • Understanding content and relevance of an imaging report
  • Integration of diagnostic imaging findings into practice
  • Understanding cost and utilization issues associated with diagnostic imaging procedures

FRCPT course will includes all aspects of radiology but importance will be given to more of musculoskeletal radiology. Kindly refer detailed syllabus page for more information.



Upon completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Engage in the diagnostic process using orthopedic imaging procedures when appropriate to establish differential diagnoses.
  • Decide the most appropriate musculoskeletal imaging procedure according to the client presentation and the current best evidence for diagnosis.
  • Determine the most appropriate radiographic views according to client presentation, current best evidence for diagnosis, and current best evidence for reducing ionizing radiation exposure.
  • Describe a systematic approach to the analysis of plain film radiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and computed tomography and determine the relevance of visualized pathology to clinical decision-making.
  • Use evidence-based diagnostic imaging procedures as appropriate to help determine the client who would benefit from physical therapy interventions and the client who requires referral for medical services.
  • Review diagnostic test studies on musculoskeletal imaging according to evidence-based criteria for validity, including an explanation of radiographic clinical decision rules for orthopedic pathology related to the spine and extremities.
  • Understand basic concepts of musculoskeletal image acquisition and interpretation.
  • Recognize the appearance of normal anatomy and common pathology on musculoskeletal images to facilitate diagnostic accuracy and appropriate intervention strategies and forces.
  • Effectively educate patients and clients regarding their diagnostic imaging results.  Formulate an enhanced working vocabulary of diagnostic and musculoskeletal imaging terminology and appropriately communicate with other medical professionals using the language of diagnostic imaging.

Most importantly, you will be able to apply the knowledge to your clinical practice immediately!


FRCPT Learning Methods

The course will include direct lectures, mini-online lectures, self-directed study chapters, case studies and online discussions.

  • Online lectures: There will be Approximately 60 Online class room lectures by Prof.Dr.Prabhu and other FRCPT faculties to introduce and elaborate the imaging techniques and its clinical applications.
  • Direct lectures: There will be 80 direct class room lectures by Prof.Dr.Prabhu and other FRCPT faculties to introduce and elaborate the imaging techniques and its clinical applications.
  • Self-directed study chapter: Online lectures will be supplemented by a self-directed study chapter from the course text. Each week, students will be provided with a guided learning sheet and will be expected to work through assigned course text chapters to answer objectives of guided learning questions.
  • Case studies: Case study or case study series with assigned questions will be posted for each course module. Participants will be expected to read case study(s) and work though the assigned questions.
  • Mini-Online discussions (if Required): Will be used for a group discussion of the case study(s) and assigned questions. All on-line discussions will be moderated by the course instructors
  • There will be two proctored exams in this course (can be completed at our officially recognized centers for those outside of Bangalore and there will be a remote proctoring option  too.
