Emergency Radiology is quite young as a subspecialty within the imaging field, but it has gained enormous significance in recent years. Emergencies constitute a substantial portion of radiological cases and require efficient, effective handling with correct diagnoses and decisions in a timely manner. In the majority of hospitals today, radiologists are integral members of the emergency unit, and are in charge of sequencing, prioritization and management of imaging services. Wherever this is the case, the outcome is impressive; not only is trauma imaging improved, with resulting lower morbidity and mortality, but all emergency patients benefit from the closer relationship between radiologists and the emergency department team. IDoR 2018 highlights this essential role that radiologists play in the emergency room, increasing the quality of care and treatment of patients.

 

The seminar is designed as a 2-day introduction and guide to interpretation of emergency imaging. It is aimed at new consultants, A&E doctors, Medical residents, Radiographers; surgeons, emergency nurse practitioners, ST1/2 radiology trainees, reporting radiographers and junior doctors. The lectures will be subdivided by anatomical region. Adult and pediatric imaging will be included highlighting normal anatomy, common and uncommon patterns of injury

  • Identify the radiographic appearances of a range of injuries and medical conditions presenting in the emergency setting and their management.
  • State the clinical indications for using radiographic imaging in the emergency department
    Apply their knowledge to interpret emergency imaging with emphasis of review areas.
  • Recognize both normal and abnormal appearances of commonly performed emergency radiology exams.
