Event Overview
Welcome message:

This three-day course is designed to provide the practicing radiologist an intensive hands-on experience in imaging interpretation of traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies. Pertinent concepts of imaging technique will be reviewed and will motivate the case-based learning process.


Attendees review over 300 emergent examinations covering all organ systems and modalities commonly encountered in the emergency radiology setting. Through participation in multiple interpretation sessions under the supervision of expert faculty, participants develop a higher level of expertise and confidence in emergent imaging. Formal lectures cover the core concepts, organized by organ system.


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:


Develop a systematic search pattern for evaluating MDCT examinations of the multiple-trauma patient

Recognize common and significant injuries in trauma

Familiarize with potential sources of missed diagnoses and interpretation pitfalls in MDCT of trauma

Understand basic technical principles for proper acquisition of CT images in the emergency patient (trauma and non-trauma)

Learn characteristic appearance of various causes of acute abdominal, chest and pelvic emergencies on plain radiography, CT and US

Learn fundamental imaging aspects of non-traumatic neurological, and head and neck emergencies

Review common and uncommon fractures of the upper extremities, lower extremities, and pelvis and spine, with emphasis on the “easily missed” fracture


Enjoyed interacting with the well-qualified, easy going, and very accessible faculty from all three subspecialties: Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology and Body Imaging.


This was my third course!  I like the "hands on" approach. The instructors are always fantastic and very personable. Great learning atmosphere. You are able to work at your own pace.


Really cannot say enough positive about the course. The faculty were outstanding and friendly. Cases covered a wide range of material and clinical scenarios. Workstation setup and support was excellent.
