Anywhere is the world, thanks to the magic of the internet! That being said, I live and work in Australia, and as such I have built this course based on standards and guidelines set by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), plus Australian Medicare rules and item numbers. The majority of the course would be applicable in any country, however.
Depending on your background knowledge and motivation, allow between 2-4 hours to complete the course.
