PITFALLS IN RADIOLOGY

Pitfalls in Radiology presents the most common and important pitfalls in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, breast and musculoskeletal areas. To enhance your learning experience we have included key audience questions in the panel discussions.
 

Every radiologist has fallen victim to one or more of these.

They tend to fall into certain patterns, often with important clinical implications. We may miss or misinterpret findings based on faulty technique, imaging protocols, or lack of familiarity with criteria for distinguishing among similarly appearing lesions. Our faculty is made up of experienced radiologists who have spent years observing the common mistakes made by trainees, other radiologists and themselves. They discuss the importance of decision-support tools as an aid to providing an accurate and specific diagnosis or limited differential diagnosis. They present clues to improve imaging and viewing protocols that will reduce diagnostic errors. And they present the keys for recognizing and avoiding common and critical Pitfalls in Radiology. Pitfalls in Radiology presents the most common and important pitfalls in the chest, abdomen, pelvis, breast and musculoskeletal areas. To enhance your learning experience we have included key audience questions in the panel discussions.

In Pitfalls in Radiology you will learn:

      • The financial and health costs of overly vague or incorrect differential diagnoses, and other interpretive errors.
      • How to use decision-support tools that can help radiologists make more accurate diagnoses
      • How to optimize those imaging and viewing protocols that may impair the ability of radiologists to make accurate and clinically useful diagnoses.
