Imaging in the ED: A Practical Update of Emergency Radiology

Categorical Course

Participate in Washington, DC or Online • Wednesday, April 25–Friday, April 27
This course will review the current status of imaging and imaging protocols for a variety of suspected or known disorders in the emergency setting. Accomplished experts will review examples from clinical practice, share insights into potential pitfalls of imaging performance and interpretation, and much more.

Needs Assessment

Emergency radiology is a ‘hot subspecialty’, with continued job availability and exciting clinical work, where a major impact can be made by the radiologist, and where the radiologist works hand-in-hand with the emergency clinicians. There are a growing number of emergency radiology fellowships, and many practices–both academic and private–continue to develop or are developing emergency radiology sections. Additionally, there are a variety of practices and companies which cover more than just their own practice.

Target Audience

This course is intended for all professionals who do any sort of emergency radiology in their daily routine as well as after-hours practice. The course will also be useful for emergency radiologists wishing to further hone their current knowledge and skills, as well as for trainees at all levels.
