About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME activity emphasizes the clinical and radiological advances in emergency and critical care imaging procedures. State of the art imaging protocols, advanced techniques and diagnostic pearls and pitfalls are emphasized so that studies can be performed and interpreted in an optimal and time efficient manner. The need for careful and complete communication between the radiologist and the clinicians is stressed along with modern compliance and reimbursement practices.
This course is primarily intended and designed to educate those physicians and other medical personnel who use, supervise and/or interpret radiology studies and procedures in emergency suites, trauma centers and intensive care units. Thus, this should be particularly helpful for radiologists, intensivists, trauma surgeons, allied health personnel and emergency medicine physicians. It should also be beneficial for those who order imaging studies and wish to better understand current applications of imaging methods and indications.
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
- Discuss approaches to imaging of the most frequent and serious emergency and critical care problems that occur in their practice.
- Demonstrate an increased awareness on how best to respond to the wide variety of imaging and interventional situations that occur most often during the evenings and weekends.
- Implement into their practices protocols for assessing the trauma patient in a time efficient manner.
- Discuss the malpractice risks associated with trauma imaging.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
