Critical Case Findings and Practice Management in the ED

Imaging utilization in the emergency setting has been steadily increasing over the past several decades. Data shows this is due to both an increase in the number of patients seen in emergency centers and also an increase in the average number of imaging examinations obtained on a per patient basis.  Using a multisystem approach, participants will improve their interpretive skills in the broad spectrum of imaging case studies acquired in an emergency department environment. The value for developing or improving a disaster preparedness and response plan for radiology departments and radiology practices will also be discussed.
