Course informationThe 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.
