X-ray Image Interpretation Training

Egg Cup Training is engaging, interactive and EFFECTIVE. 

Numbers are strictly limited.  Access to facilitators is unparalleled. We teach real clinical skills.  

You will be able to spot and describe pathology on trauma x-rays on your very next shift.

Radiographer, emergency doctor, physiotherapist or nurse practitioner ...
all health practitioners can ‘Make their opinion count’


Radiographer, doctor, physio, nurse; regardless of your role description or formal responsibility we are all in a prime position to correlate clinical findings with radiographic appearances.

The ‘Swiss Cheese Model’ of accident causation suggests that the more preventative measures (cheese slices) that can be placed between a patient and a negative outcome (misdiagnosis), the less chance of an error occurring.

Let us all offer an opinion. If you see something, say something.

'Steph's Story'

  • History38yo female ‘Rolled’ ankle whilst running
  • AssesmentPain, swelling and bruising lateral aspect of foot
  • Xray“? Fracture base of 5th metatarsal – x-ray foot” DP, oblique and lateral foot x-rays performed (oblique shown)

The team delivering Steph’s care
during her visit to a busy
emergency department included
three different healthcare professions.

Follow the different scenarios to see Steph’s outcome.

No-one could identify a fracture at the base of 5th MT and Steph was discharged with soft tissue injury advice and analgesia

No-one could identify a fracture at the base of 5th MT. One person thought there was an unusual appearance of the calcaneum but didn’t know what it was so said nothing. Steph was discharged with soft tissue injury advice and analgesia

One person spoke to the rest of the team about what they thought was an unusual appearance of the calcaneum. An avulsion # of the anterior process was identified. Steph was placed in a ‘Moon Boot’ (controlled ankle movement walker) and discharged with analgesia to fracture clinic for orthopaedic follow up.

Learn and apply real skills

at the most comprehensive image interpretation workshop around!


Emma, Pat and Mike are Egg Cup Training. They are energetic and passionate radiographers with a special interest and clinical expertise in the field of emergency x-ray image interpretation.

The management of a patient within the emergency department can involve many healthcare professionals, with varying backgrounds. Interpretation of x-rays is a complex skill, often left to one health care practitioner within the multi-disciplinary team. Egg Cup Training believes that everyone involved can provide a valuable opinion that can enhance patient safety; and it needn’t be daunting.

Egg Cup Training is committed to breaking down complex issues and delivering relevant practical training that clinicians can put into practice immediately.

Mike, Pat and Emma each have a strong commitment to professional development, the multi-disciplinary team and improving health services. It’s a point of pride that they are able to incorporate these values into the programs that they develop.

They believe that with their innovative and engaging education, they can empower you to:

  • Confidently review your x-rays
  • Gain confidence in your ability to describe what you see
  • Communicate effectively with other health care practitioners

Egg Cup Training is designed and delivered by clinicians for clinicians in the modern healthcare setting.
