This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation

requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education

(ACCME) through the joint providership of Continuing Medical Education Resources and

the American Society of Emergency Radiology. Continuing Medical Education Resources is

accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Continuing Medical Education Resources designates this live educational activity for a maximum

of 32 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate

with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Self-Assessment Module Information

The Self-Assessment Modules (SAM) presented in this activity, Non-traumatic Abdomen and

New! AOSpine Injury Classification, are qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting

the criteria for Part 2 self-assessment CME (SA-CME) as part of the ABR Maintenance of

Certification program. You may register to receive SA-CME credit for these sessions and pay the

associated $35 fee during the registration process.

Mass Casualty Hands-On Workshop

Friday, September 27 • 12:45 – 5:45 PM • $95 Additional Registration Required

This workshop provides radiologists with knowledge of how they can optimize the handling of mass

casualties. Short didactic lectures and primarily small group problem-solving activities guided

by experienced faculty will ensure valuable interaction. For example, a hands-on session with

advanced simulation software will be used to identify patient throughput bottle necks and resources

to alleviate them. After attending the Workshop, participants will be able to deal with topics crucial

for mass casualty preparedness planning, like evaluating threats, identifying and prioritizing key

radiology tasks, measuring required capabilities, and coordinating with the hospital system.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

The 2018 ASER Annual Meeting will provide a broad overview

of current state-of-the-art imaging techniques to evaluate the

acutely ill and injured patient. Educational sessions covering the

latest advances and trends in emergency and trauma radiologic

diagnosis and sessions presenting new and original scientific work

are included. The meeting provides an opportunity to meet with

international colleagues and discuss new and challenging aspects

of emergency and trauma imaging.

The meeting is of particular interest and importance to clinical radiologists, both in the

community and academic centers, delivering emergency care. Subspecialists in emergency

radiology, neuroradiology, musculoskeletal radiology, chest and abdominal radiology, radiology

residents and fellows, and emergency physicians at all levels of training will also find the

educational and scientific material presented at the ASER meeting essential to their core and

on-call knowledge base.

UPDATE! The Trauma Head-to-Toe course held on the last two days of the meeting is wellsuited

for radiology residents preparing for emergency radiology coverage and is an excellent

review for all radiologists covering trauma centers. The ASER is offering discounted registration

for this two-day course to the first 60 residents or fellows interested in emergency radiology.

Meeting Goals and Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the course, attendees should be able to:

1. Select the most appropriate imaging approaches to allow prompt assessment of the injured

and acutely ill patient.

2. Apply optimal techniques to the acquisition of various imaging examinations commonly used

in the emergency setting, maximizing diagnostic potential and considering patient safety.

3. Develop and utilize a systematic approach to the assessment of traumatic injuries and nontraumatic

acute diseases, from head to toe.

4. Understand and be better able to implement the requirements for delivering continuous high

quality care in an emergency radiology service, as well as throughout the unique circumstances

that accompany mass casualty incidents.

5. Apply the latest imaging technologies and techniques for the investigation of the acutely ill or

injured patient in the ED (e.g. Dual Energy CT, MRI, Ultrasound and trauma whole-body CT).

blue, white, etc.

Approved Image Formats 




Presentation Style

 Organize material in logical order, with all images and text supporting the central premise of the poster in a concise

manner. Text and images should complement and reinforce one another. Poster presentations should be userfriendly,

visually attractive, and fast-paced.

Content Requirements

 The first slide should contain:

o Title, authors and institution

o Disclosure statement

o Goals and objectives of the poster as well as the target audience

 The last slide should contain:

o Additional content as needed

o Summary

o Author correspondence information (including email).

o References if any

 Each slide should be proofread for factual, grammatical, and spelling errors. Posters including errors may not qualify

for an award.

General Points for Consideration

 Please remember that the poster presentation is retained as a permanent record and therefore all errors and poorly

reproduced or incorrectly illustrated images remain visible in the system. We recommend that you identify and

prepare images well in advance of the deadline, so that this aspect of your poster, which is most likely to cause

delays, does not cause you problems.

 The aim of an electronic poster presentation is to convey to the viewer the essence of your topic in a relatively

compact format. Please clearly state all elements and illustrate them with relevant images only when appropriate.

 In general, the information presented must be up-to-date, even if the topic or images refer to some older or historic

procedures. The recent literature must be cited to support the presented material; however, exhaustive reference

lists should be avoided.

 Remember, the final poster is not expected to display solely a typed manuscript, and most attendees are unlikely to

spend much time on a poster that does not have a sufficient number of images to support the text. Therefore, text

should be well structured (use bullets for clarity), presenting only enough data to support your conclusions.

 Remember the importance of linking the correct image to the text at the appropriate place - a clearly presented

image is often worth a thousand words and the wrong text-image link destroys the validity of the poster.

 Composition should be logical, well organized, self-explanatory and as brief as possible.

 Consider asking an independent colleague (if possible one not involved in the poster) to give an unbiased opinion

on the following: The clarity of the presentation, whether it makes the point or not and the relevance and clarity of

the images. Edit redundant text and images as needed.

Avoid the Promotion of Commercial Entities and State that the Indication is "Off-license" if Necessary

 Your poster must be non-promotional and non-commercial in nature. Any commercial relationship that the authors

have, must be disclosed in the submission system where requested.

 It is essential to state that the data presented is "off-label" if the poster refers to an indication that is not covered by

the licensing authorities.

 This disclosure information must also be included at the beginning of your poster.

Policy Regarding Usage of Images

 ASER policy requires that all images and other material used in posters must be the property of the poster authors.

If you wish to reproduce images or other material obtained from another author's work from any source, including

the Internet, permission must be obtained from the author and appropriate credit must be given.
