Mastering ER Radiology:
Accurate Diagnoses and Timely Decision-making Workshop
Thursday April 11, 2024
8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Le Westin Montreal
270 Saint-Antoine Ouest
Are you looking to enhance your emergency radiology skills to navigate critical scenarios? Join us for a dynamic and hands-on experience at the Mastering ER Radiology: Accurate Diagnoses and Timely Decision-making Workshop – where theory meets practice, and expertise meets action!
This intensive one-day hands-on workshop will feature dedicated training and sessions focused on emergent pathology and will provide practical problem-solving tools for the general radiologist. Designed for practicing radiologists, the workshop is structured to simulate real-case reporting and hone their skills in the fast-paced world of emergency radiology. Short high-impact didactic reviews will be followed by multiple interpretation sessions where participants can review complete image files under the supervision of expert faculty. There is an emphasis on common pathologies, as well as a focus on pitfalls and missed diagnoses.
Instructors will share strategies for the interpretation of difficult imaging patterns, provide tools for navigating the hinterland between normal and abnormal and equip both the novice and experienced reader with tips and tricks for image acquisition, interpretation and facilitate recognition of common “misses”. Instructors are all fellowship-trained radiologists at academic centres.
Key Learning Objectives
Following active participation in this simulation workshop, participants should be able to:
- Recognize characteristic appearance of various causes of acute head to toe emergencies on plain radiography, CT, and US
Gain comprehensive knowledge in identifying and interpreting radiographic images of emergency cases, including a diverse range of head-to-toe emergencies, through hands-on simulations and case-based learning.
- Review common and uncommon fractures of the upper extremities, lower extremities, and pelvis with an emphasis on areas where findings are most often missed
Delve into the world of both common and uncommon fractures and gain insight on areas prone to oversight. Engage in practical exercises to reinforce your ability to detect fractures in the upper extremities, lower extremities, and pelvis.
- Develop a scientific approach to CT image acquisition of the emergency patient (in the trauma setting)
Acquire key strategies in CT image acquisition for emergency patients, particularly in trauma settings. Learn the intricacies of optimizing image quality while efficiently obtaining critical diagnostic information.
- Facilitate an approach to the interpretation of the polytrauma patient in a trauma setting
Enhance your skills in interpreting radiographic findings in polytrauma patients within a trauma setting. Engage in interactive case studies to refine your approach and decision-making skills in managing complex emergencies.
This workshop is designed designed for practicing radiologists and is structured to simulate real-case reporting.
