This continuing education activity provides a practical, clinically relevant review of common pediatric imaging protocols and techniques. Expert faculty share pearls and pitfalls in abdominal, vascular, musculoskeletal, and neuroradiology. Discussions include the advantages of using advanced imaging technology, multimodality imaging techniques, image characteristics and quality improvements aimed at improving patient outcomes.
This course should benefit pediatric radiologists, physicians who supervise and interpret pediatric imaging studies. This course should also prove valuable for physicians who order pediatric imaging studies.
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
- Discuss the challenges radiologists face when caring for a pediatric patient.
- Minimize the risks of ionizing radiation exposure to the pediatric patient.
- Utilize technical advances to maximize image quality yet minimize radiation exposure dose.
- Recognize key image features associated with pediatric chest, GI, GU, neuro, vascular and musculoskeletal disorders.
- Incorporate quality improvement processes to increase the standard of pediatric care in radiology
- Effectively communicate with pediatric patients, their parents and referring physicians.
- Apply protocols to efficiently evaluate the non-accidental trauma patient.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity
