Pediatric Radiology

Developed in conjunction with the Society for Pediatric Radiology 

Target Audience: General radiologists that are called upon to interpret pediatric studies in their practice.

This hands-on, three-day course, led by Sumit Pruthi, MD, Unni Udayasankar MD, FRCR, and Esben Vogelius, MD, provides practicing radiologists with intensive education in all aspects of pediatric radiology. The 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. Key teaching points will be provided for each imaging study with examples highlighting developmental variants and age appropriate normal findings.

Workstation: FUJI Synapse

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

Certificate


Attendees who complete a minimum of 100 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Completion in Pediatric Radiology.
