Pediatric Radiology

Explore pediatric radiology in this immersive two-day course designed for practicing radiologists. Delve into three key domains: pediatric body imaging, musculoskeletal imaging, and neuroradiology. The course focuses on basic and advanced pediatric pathologies, emphasizing appropriate imaging techniques, optimizing the use of radiation-based studies and the importance of sedation.

Using a practical approach with hands-on experience provided via the proprietary ACR Case Engine at a dedicated workstation, you’ll explore imaging interpretations for over 300 diverse pediatric radiology examinations. Sub-specialty trained faculty will outline their approach to cases and highlight fundamental concepts, emphasizing key insights and potential challenges to help you navigate the complex landscape of the youngest patients. Further tailor your learning experience by selecting cases based on pediatric subspecialties, each accompanied by key teaching points and illustrative examples of pediatric entitles, developmental variants, and age-appropriate normal findings.

Elevate your expertise through hands-on experience, case-based learning, and comprehensive lectures in this dynamic educational event. With a favorable faculty-to-learner ratio, our course promises a personalized learning experience, facilitating in-depth discussions with faculty and peers. You’ll be prepared for real-world scenarios in pediatric radiology with insights that extend beyond textbooks.

Program and Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Provide a thorough, across-the-board review of pediatric radiology techniques and pathology to the practicing radiologist

  • Focus on specific imaging needs in children with emphasis on implementing appropriate imaging techniques concentrated on the age of the child and the clinical question to be answered

  • Highlight challenges encountered in pediatric radiology practice and offer practical solutions in following areas: radiation, IV/oral contrast, child life, sedation, communication with parents and referring physicians

  • To create a large case engine in pediatric radiology with more than 300 cases that would be grouped into the following three major subsections: pediatric body imaging, pediatric musculoskeletal imaging and pediatric neuroradiology

  • Offer detailed reports for each case in the case engine stressing the key teaching points that guide the attendees to an accurate diagnosis

  • Stratify cases according to their incidence in the general pediatric population and based on their level of interpretative difficulty

  • Illustrate normal developmental variants that mimic pathology on imaging studies
