EMERGENCY RADIOLOGY | October 14-15, Sochi/Russia

Course information

The course is designed for senior residents and board-certified radiologists, who want to improve and expand their knowledge in emergency radiology. The programme combines lectures and workshops on the appropriate use of diagnostic radiology in major traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies. Special attention will be given to teaching cases reflecting the most frequent and significant emergencies in clinical settings. The topics will range from brain to heart and chest, abdominal and urogenital emergencies. Well-known European experts in emergency radiology will present the latest information about radiological symptoms and signs of the emergent clinical situations, and will give updates about optimal protocols of X-ray, CT and MRI examinations and approaches to image analysis. Moreover, the speakers will illustrate the role of the radiologist in the multidisciplinary patient management as well as present possible pitfalls and difficult situations.

Learning objectives

  • to review the most important cardiac and vascular emergencies and to learn about major indications for the use of cardiovascular CT and MRI
  • to update the knowledge of advanced use of CT in acute stroke and its significance for interventional treatment of stroke patients
  • to become familiar with major radiological signs of polytrauma and sports trauma and to understand the basics of the appropriate use of diagnostic imaging in such patients
  • to learn about the advantages of abdominal CT in bowel obstruction
  • to acquire information about major pelvic and gynaecological emergencies and to know about the imaging appearances of abdominal paediatric emergencies
  • to review the types of adverse reactions to contrast media and to learn how to prevent and treat them
  • to become familiar with overlooked findings and diagnostic errors when evaluating emergency imaging studies
