Make Fast, Accurate Imaging Decisions in Emergency Situations

This program is designed to help radiologists make the best imaging decisions in emergency situations. Taught by a team of experts from the University of Washington School of Medicine, its goal is to prepare the practicing radiologist to be of maximum assistance to the emergency physician. Topics cover the most common traumas by body part with emphasis on rapid decision-making in the selection of imaging studies, pitfalls to watch out for, and implementation of protocols that maximize diagnostic accuracy. Lectures will help training and practicing radiologists develop an integrated imaging approach to injuries of the head, neck, spine, torso, pelvis and appendicular skeleton. It will help you to better:

  • Rapidly determine the appropriate imaging studies to perform in emergency situations
  • Describe critical components in communicating with the clinical team to optimize patient management and imaging
  • Implement appropriate imaging protocols that optimize diagnostic accuracy while minimizing radiation exposure
  • Accurately interpret emergency imaging studies and recognize when additional imaging is indicated
