What Your Colleagues Are Saying
Enjoyed interacting with the well-qualified, easy going, and very accessible faculty from all three subspecialties: Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology and Body Imaging.
This was my third course! I like the "hands on" approach. The instructors are always fantastic and very personable. Great learning atmosphere. You are able to work at your own pace.
Really cannot say enough positive about the course. The faculty were outstanding and friendly. Cases covered a wide range of material and clinical scenarios. Workstation setup and support was excellent.
Attendees who complete a minimum of 150 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Emergency Radiology.
