Webinar Event

Radiographic interpretation continues to be very difficult for providers especially those who are new or changing roles. This live webinar will give attendees a strong introduction to the understanding and reading of chest X-rays as well as an abdomen series. Multiple digital x-rays will be used to demonstrate normal vs abnormal variants. This discussion will be using primarily adult-based radiographs.

Additionally, we are pleased to offer CE-accredited Partner Programs on the topics of Influenza, COVID19, and Migraines as well as an optional sponsored session featuring highly sought-after Bayer IUD information and hands-on training.

Don’t miss this webinar event. Participants will have the opportunity to engage and interact with the speakers and get answers through a Q&A session directly following each of the presentations.
