About The Meeting
This webcast symposium is structured to provide important and clinically advanced, relevant information for those physicians and other medical personnel who provide or use radiology services in emergency and critical care locations. State of the art imaging protocols, advanced techniques and diagnostic pitfalls are emphasized so that studies can be performed and interpreted in an optimal and time efficient manner. The carefully selected internationally recognized faculty, share pearls and pitfalls of emergency room and critical care imaging while keeping patient welfare in mind. The need for careful and complete communication between the radiologist and the clinicians will be emphasized along with modern compliance and reimbursement practices.

Target Audience
This course is primarily intended and designed to educate those physicians and other medical personnel who use, supervise and/or interpret radiology studies and procedures in emergency suites, trauma centers and intensive care units. Thus, this should be particularly helpful for radiologists, intensivists, trauma surgeons, allied health personnel and emergency medicine physicians. It should also be beneficial for those who order imaging studies and wish to better understand current applications of imaging methods and indications.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss approaches to imaging of the most frequent and serious emergency and critical care problems that occur in their practice.
  • Demonstrate an increased awareness on how best to respond to the wide variety of imaging and interventional situations that occur most often during the evenings and weekends.
  • Optimize protocols to assess the trauma patient in a time efficient manner.
  • Discuss the malpractice risks associated with trauma imaging.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
