• Apply CT findings to guide adequate patient management

 

Overview:
CT plays an important role in triaging trauma patients and identifying life-threatening injuries. Some injuries might be subtle and difficult to appreciate; however, they can convey significant mortality if not identified. Emergency and trauma radiologist should become familiar with the wide range of blunt related injuries and their imaging findings. It is vital for radiologists to rapidly identify life-threatening injuries and prompt initiation of appropriate care in order to increase the chance of survival for patients with trauma. This workshop aims to expose candidates to a wide variety of major trauma cases based on the experience of renown major trauma centers.

 

How it works:
Once registered, you will be sent a link to all cases. During the session the teachers will give you enough time to scroll through each case yourself. You will be able to share your screen and discuss with the rest of the attendees. The workshop will involve active participation – including via interactive polling and chat function. You will be given a personalised workbook and learning points and answers will be shared with you.
