About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME activity is structured to provide important and clinically advanced, relevant information for those physicians and other medical personnel who provide or use radiology services in emergency and critical care locations. State of the art imaging protocols, advanced techniques and diagnostic pitfalls are emphasized so that studies can be performed and interpreted in an optimal and time efficient manner. The carefully selected internationally recognized faculty, share pearls and pitfalls of emergency room and critical care imaging while keeping patient welfare in mind. The need for careful and complete communication between the radiologist and the clinicians will be emphasized along with modern compliance and reimbursement practices.
Target Audience
This CME activity is designed to educate physicians who use, supervise and/or interpret radiology studies and procedures in emergency suites, trauma centers and intensive care units. Thus, this should be particularly helpful for radiologists, intensivists, trauma surgeons, and emergency medicine physicians. It should also be beneficial for those who order imaging studies and wish to better understand current applications of imaging methods and indications.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Discuss approaches to imaging of the most frequent and serious emergency and critical care problems that occur in their practice.
  • Demonstrate an increased awareness on how best to respond to the wide variety of imaging and interventional situations that occur most often during the evenings and weekends.
  • Implement into their practices protocols for assessing the trauma patient in a time efficient manner.
