Emergency Radiology

July 31, 2018; Bogota/Colombia
August 2, 2018; Cartagena/Colombia
Course informationThe programme is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows, as well as practicing radiologists interested in the interpretation of emergency imaging. It is designed as an intense, one-day course and addresses current effective imaging techniques of the acute injured or ill patient. The expert faculty comprises excellent international teachers in the field. This course gives the unique opportunity to detect important pathologies in the emergency radiology setting, providing a systematic pattern to approach the correct diagnosis, avoiding common interpretation pitfalls. Updates in imaging, with respect to pathophysiology, clinical presentation and emergency management care of patients will be emphasised. The combination of didactic lectures with interactive workshops, will give the attendees the opportunity of an educative experience and an exchange possibility with the faculty.
