Radiologic Reasoning: A Rapid-Fire Multispecialty Review 

Online Course

This online course is a unique opportunity for radiologists at all levels, from those in-training to those in practice for years, to review common topics in 11 radiology disciplines presented in a case-based format. Each case will be presented with an unknown diagnosis for users' self-assessment. The course discusses many common diagnoses as well as important but easily missed uncommon ones. Each module addresses one subspecialty and contains 60 minutes of case review and 30 minutes of didactic lecture. The rapid-fire case review will provide an even more comprehensive review of cases with limited differential diagnoses.

Learning Outcomes and Modules

Upon completion of this course, participants will possess the knowledge and skills to: develop differential diagnoses for conditions in 11 radiology subspecialties; recognize imaging and clinical features to refine differential diagnoses to reach a more specific diagnosis; ecognize commonly encountered imaging artifacts, describe why they occur, and learn techniques to avoid them; demonstrate management decisions affecting a variety of commonly encountered clinical scenarios; recognize imaging features that are highly characteristic of a specific diagnosis or diagnostic set.
