Emergency Radiology Symposium

What You Need to Know to Get You Through the Night

Sunday–Wednesday, November 4–7, 2018
Fontainebleau Hotel, Miami Beach, Florida

About Event

Sunday, November 4

  • Implement evidence-based recommendations to identify unique fractures in younger children and categorize injury types in immature bone.
  • Effectively identify imaging appearances of lower extremity trauma, including hip, knee, ankle, and foot injuries.
  • Effectively identify pediatric hand injuries, including injury type and location.
  • Recognize relevant cardiothoracic findings and features that help to narrow the differential diagnosis on the chest radiograph, in patients presenting with acute presentations.
  • Recognize the various imaging appearances of upper extremity trauma, including sternoclavicular, acromioclavicular, glenohumeral, and elbow injuries.
  • Describe acute disorders/conditions affecting the female pelvis, with an emphasis on the CT findings, and differentiate the diagnosis of these findings.

Monday, November 5

  • Recognize the various imaging appearances of and understand the basic classification system for pelvic trauma.
  • Implement current imaging, surgical and pathology recommendations for the treatment of appendicitis to improve patient outcomes.
  • Recognize the various imaging appearances of forearm, wrist, and hand injuries.

Tuesday November 6

  • Review examples of potential and actual pitfalls in the interpretation of the luminal gastrointestinal tract on routine abdominal and pelvic CT, especially those examinations performed in the emergency setting (and typically with IV contrast only).
  • Determine the most appropriate imaging for evaluation in neonatal abdominal emergencies.
  • Effectively recognize imaging findings that need urgent communication to the referring physician, IR radiologist or surgeon.
  • Implement evidence-based recommendations for assessing traumatic injuries of the chest.
  • Effectively identify patients of common pediatric abdominal emergencies with sonography.
  • Recognize the imaging findings that differentiate acute from chronic PE.

Wednesday, November 7

  • Examine the value of CT and MRI imaging when triaging patients with acute ischemic stroke.
  • Distinguish spinal column infection vs. severe degenerative disease.
  • Explain the imaging signs of non-traumatic subarachnoid hemorrhage, masses and inflammatory conditions of the brain.
  • Apply appropriate imaging of oncologic emergencies to ensure a prompt diagnosis as well as assisting in the therapeutic management.
  • Examine the scope of practice and the evidence supporting clinical applications of MRI in the emergency setting.​
  • Apply evidence-based therapy for acute mesenteric ischemia that includes aspiration embolectomy, transcatheter thrombolysis and angioplasty with or without stenting for the treatment of underlying arterial stenosis.
