About The Meeting
This course provides a practical, clincally relevant review of common pediatric imaging protocols and techniques.  Expert faculty share pearls and pitfalls in abdominal, vascular, musculoskeletal, and neuroradiology. Discussion includes the advantages of using advanced imaging technology, multimodality imaging techniques, image characteristics and quality improvements aimed at improving patient outcomes. 

Target Audience
This course should benefit pediatric radiologists, physicians who supervise and interpret pediatric imaging studies and technologists who perform these procedures. This course should also prove valuable for physicians who order pediatric imaging studies.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss the challenges radiologists face when caring for a pediatric patient.
  • Minimize the risks of ionizing radiation exposure to the pediatric patient.
  • Utilize technical advances to maximize image quality yet minimize radiation exposure dose.
  • Recognize key image features associated with pediatric chest, GI, GU, neuro, vascular and musculoskeletal disorders.
  • Incorporate quality improvement processes to increase the standard of pediatric care in radiology.
  • Effectively communicate with pediatric patients, their parents, and referring physicians.
  • Apply protocols to efficiently evaluate the non-accidental trauma patient.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
