|8 April 00:00 - 10 April 00:00 - Virtual Event
This online Chest Trauma Imaging fellowship provides skills and knowledge in the interpretation of the trauma chest radiograph and CT. Optimisation of imaging protocols will also be discussed to enable the reporting radiologist to provide a timely clinicoradiological opinion to the attending trauma clinicians that informs the most appropriate management plan in the patient’s best interest.
Each session includes several short lectures following which the attendee will have the opportunity to practice on anonymised chest trauma imaging cases selected from the TMC Academy teaching file archive. These cases will be reviewed during a group case discussion session with a “Question & Answer” session concluding each training day.
