School of Health and Society
Core Skills for Radiological Reporting (CSRR) is a 15 credit theoretical module that encourages the trainee reporting radiographer to be critical and reflective in their practice.
It is available as part of our MSc Advanced Medical Imaging.
CSRR will be completed alongside one of our other reporting modules, Dynamic Studies, Adult Chest Reporting, Radiological Image Interpretation or Extending Advanced Practice. You will use your reporting caseload as a basis for a critical reflective audit and to complete the module assessment.
Alternatively, if you are already qualified to report and you would like to take a more critical approach to your practice you may study CSRR as a standalone module, using your reporting caseload to support your studies.
Completing the post graduate certificate will enable you to develop your skills to become competent in pattern recognition and image interpretation specific to your own area of practice and to effectively formulate diagnoses and communicate your reports both verbally and in writing.
CSRR is available as part of our MSc Advanced Medical Imaging

The University’s Virtual Learning Environment, Blackboard Ultra, will be used for live online tutorials as well as providing students with directed learning resources and access to the library’s extensive databases to complete independent learning.
