185 Cambridge Street
Boston, MA 02114

The educational objective of this intensive, two-day course is to provide a comprehensive, focused review of the major basic & advanced principles of diagnostic emergency radiology in the evaluation of acutely ill and injured patients.

Specifically, we will emphasize the management, acquisition, and interpretation of structural and advanced imaging studies of the brain, spine, extremities, heart, lungs, abdomen, pelvis, and vascular system, with the goal of:

  • Appropriate application of clinical imaging algorithms.
  • Implementation of relevant recent technical advances.
  • Formulation of a systematic approach to interpreting traumatic and non traumatic conditions from head to toe.

Special emphasis will be placed on the recognition of common imaging mimics, pitfalls, and artifacts, as well as highlighting “what the referring clinician needs to know”, up-to-date emergency department workflow and clinical decision support tools, and relevant current healthcare policy issues.
