Critical Case Findings and Practice Management in the ED

This ARRS Virtual Symposium on Friday, June 3 capitalizes on the unique perspective emergency radiologists bring to interpreting critical thoracic, abdominal, pediatric, and neuroradiological examinations. Focused on life-threatening diagnoses and the clinical implications of specific imaging findings in various body systems, radiologists at all training levels can bolster their interpretive skills across the broad spectrum of case studies acquired in an ED environment. Recognizing the value of dedicated emergency radiology staffing using a multisystem approach, participants will also learn best practices for adopting or improving their own emergency operations plan.
  • Earn up to 4 CME/Live SA-CME credits during and after the presentation through June 2, 2023
  • Gain insights across the spectrum of emergency radiology
  • Learn from accomplished faculty
  • Access case reviews, session recordings, and credit claiming for one year

Imaging utilization in the emergency department (ED) has steadily increased over the past several decades. Data show this is due to both an increase in the number of patients treated in emergency settings, as well as the increasing amount of imaging examinations obtained per patient. Emergency radiologists provide multisystem expertise in acute illness and injury, which has led to emergency radiology rising to the forefront of disaster preparedness.
