Our new MRI Spine Course on SPONDYLOARTHROPATHIES AND ARTHROPATHIES OF THE SPINE AND SIJ is a combined Clinical and Radiological Course which will cover spondyloarthritis and other arthropathies of the spine and SIJ.

This Mini Fellowship is a combined Radiology Rheumatology Course with Dr Joe Thomas, a Rheumatologist with extensive clinical experience. Whilst we will focus on Imaging, Dr Thomas will bring the very important  clinical aspect which will determine how we report a scan.

The focus of this Online MRI Spine course, like all our courses, is for you to be More Confident in making a diagnosis and to put out a much Better Reports. Apart from the Imaging abnormalities, we make sure you understand the detailed radiological anatomy of the Spine and SIJ, essential to an accurate diagnosis. We also cover the macroscopic pathology of abnormalities in all our Mini Fellowships, which I have found makes understanding and reporting the imaging easier.

Through these workshops we aim to make you More Confident with your Diagnosis, put out Clear Reports and to have your reports and findings Respected by Clinicians.

As radiologists we are usually assessing cases and putting out reports with no or minimal clinical input and feedback. That feeling is always there of not being sure of what the clinician really is asking for and whether our reports cover what she is asking. This is particularly a problem with Rheumatology where the clinical input makes a very big difference to the interpretation and reporting of the imaging. 

We are really happy to have Dr Joe Thomas, the Senior Consultant Rheumatologist at Aster Hospital in Kochi India, who has a vast amount of clinical experience. He also has a very strong interest in Imaging of arthropathies and will join us to bring a clinical perspective to the imaging and to advise us on what clinicians want when we report their referrals. Dr Thomas will be actively involved and be an integral part of the Mini Fellowship.

    The active teaching will be run over 30 days and will cover all the major pathologies seen.

    Most online courses you log on, look at the material and if you don't understand something…too bad. That is no way to learn. We show and guide you how and what to look for and how to word your report and then answer any questions you have to clear doubts. It's important to us that at the end of the Mini Fellowship that you are confident to report.

    Asking questions and clearing doubts, no matter how small, is a very important part of learning. It stops the anxiety of not knowing and feeling that something is being missed. So we guide and encourage you to ask questions throughout the course.

    Like our On-site workshops, asking questions and clearing doubts is a very important part of the Online Mini-Fellowship. You can ask questions and clear your doubts in the chat function in the course. We answer with a combination of text, images, audio or video.

    We use a mix of Concise Posts, Diagrams, How to Videos, Full Dicom Studies & Quizzes.

    For the Guided Mini fellowship we also include a chat function where you can ask questions and interact directly with Dr Ravi to clarify doubts.


    Currently we have this Mini Fellowship available online however, our aim for you at the end of the course is the same for both…For you to be confident with your diagnosis, put out clear reports and to have your reports and findings respected by clinicians. Only the method of delivery is different.

    Around 30 minutes most days. We would recommend that on weekends you try and spend some extra time reviewing what has been covered during the week. Few good things come without time and effort so you do need to set aside some time every day to get the most out of the course..

    The mini-fellowship  is recognized for 26.5 Web Based Learning CPD points by RANZCR (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists). One CPD Point per hour of Web Based Learning from RANZCR.

    RANZCR CPD points are recognized by most Licensing and Health Authorities around the world including RCR in the UK. Please check with your individual licensing authority.

    Yes, we issue a Certificate of Completion. We will also have Course Badges that can be added to your LinkedIn Profile or shared to Social media.
