This training programme is designed for veterinarians with limited experience in diagnostic radiology of companion animals. The objective of the program is to provide participants with a logical approach to basic radiographic image interpretation, including detection of pertinent radiographic signs, and generation of a prioritized differential diagnosis. 
The program is based primarily on clinical case studies in small group work and interactive teaching to stimulate an active learning process. The aim of the programme is to give participants enough knowledge and ability in radiographic image interpretation to achieve independence in common clinical situations and to facilitate their collaboration with European specialists in this field.
