About Event

Overview

Acutely ill adults and p​ediatric patients are arriving at the emergency room in greater numbers than ever before. The 17th Annual Emergency Radiology symposium is designed to help radiologists and emergency radiologists maintain optimal competence in the utilization of the most reliable imaging modalities and best-practice strategies, even for unusual conditions. One-third of the lectures will be dedicated to plain films and the remainder will stress state-of-the-art emergency imaging of the central nervous system, chest, abdomen and coronary and musculoskeletal systems. This course will be of special interest to physicians in the fields of radiology, emergency radiology and emergency medicine.
