Patient shielding is standard practice in diagnostic imaging, despite growing evidence it provides negligible or no benefit and carries a substantial risk of increasing patient dose and compromising diagnostic efficacy of an image.

Although change is difficult, it is incumbent upon radiologists, medical physicists, and radiologic technologists to abandon the practice of patient shielding in radiology. This webinar will discuss the historical rationale of patient shielding and the folly of its continued use.

In recent years, there have been substantial advances in pediatric thoracic MR imaging. However, current practicing radiologists in both academic and private practice settings are not up to date with this important information for patient care and research. Therefore, the current course, focusing on practical techniques that can improve the daily practice of pediatric thoracic MR imaging, has a great potential to improve understanding of sometimes challenging pediatric thoracic MR imaging. It also has great practical value in today’s healthcare environment which emphasizes the understanding and clinical applications of imaging techniques that are not associated with potentially harmful ionizing radiation particularly in young patient population.

Our webinar course will be led by Mark Liszewski, an internationally known expert in the field of pediatric thoracic MR imaging. He is known for his research and clinical work in pediatric thoracic MR imaging along with moderator Edward Lee, who is an internationally known neonatal thoracic radiologist. The real-time discussion of their experience and insights into the currently available practical techniques that can improve the daily practice of pediatric thoracic imaging will be of great interest to trainees, practicing radiologists, and researchers in the field of radiology as well as other medical specialties.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss practical techniques that can improve the daily practice of pediatric thoracic MR imaging
  • Consider the challenges of applying techniques of thoracic MR imaging in the pediatric population
  • Describe clinical applications of pediatric thoracic MR imaging
