Faridabad/ Alive News: The National Integrated Medical Association (NIMA) organised a day ‘Continuing Medical Education’ (CME) on the basic concept of X-ray Interpretation at QRG City Hospital here today. The CME was briefed by Dr Rakesh Sapra Director Cardiology, QRG City Hospital.
Dr Rakesh Sapra said physicians often have the first opportunity to assess and diagnose patients. He said X-rays obtained in the office, clinic, hospital or emergency rooms are an invaluable tool in quickly establishing a diagnosis or making a better differential diagnosis.
Dr Sapra said this eyes-on CME will improve the participants ability to read x-rays of the chest, extremities, neck, spine, abdomen and sinuses. It will also give participants a better working knowledge of cross sectional anatomy and imaging including a review of basic CT and MRI studies that primary care physicians are likely to encounter, he stated.
However, Dr Atul Aggarwal General Secretary of NIMA, Faridabad says this type of CME programme is very helpful for the General Physicians to update their clinical skills and new medical updates.
