Target Audience: General radiologists that are called upon to pediatric studies in their practice
This three-day hands-on course is intended to provide the practicing radiologist an intensive experience in all aspects of pediatric radiology. This course will be broadly classified into three domains, pediatric body imaging, pediatric musculoskeletal imaging and pediatric neuroradiology. Basic and advanced imaging techniques will be reviewed with a focus on reducing/avoiding radiation-based studies and need for sedation.
Participants will have access to more than 300 pediatric radiology examinations covering all organ systems and modalities on a PACS workstation. The attendees will be given the opportunity to interpret images in a real-life situation and compare their findings with subspecialty experts in each pediatric subsection. Additionally, key teaching points will be provided for each imaging study with examples highlighting developmental variants and age appropriate normal findings. Formal lectures will introduce the attendees to common clinical scenarios and challenges in individual organ systems to facilitate review of library of cases. The cases will be assorted based on their incidence as well as level on difficulty in interpretation.
