Make Fast, Accurate Imaging Decisions in Emergency Situations

UW Emergency Radiology Review is designed to help radiologists make the best imaging decisions in emergency situations. Taught by 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 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
  • Become familiar with some less common clinical conditions that present in an emergency setting
  • Update imaging protocols to optimize diagnostic accuracy while minimizing radiation
  • Accurately interpret emergency imaging studies, and recognize when additional imaging is indicated

Discover New Guidelines

A clinically based update, this learn-at-your-own-pace course in emergency radiology provides a maximum of 17 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Available online, UW Emergency Radiology Review provides access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.
