Diagnostic Imaging David Sobel, M.D. and Michael J. Shea, M.D. Order the most appropriate diagnostic test for selected brain, spine, chest, abdomen, pelvis, and musculoskeletal problems. Assess the radiation exposure to the patient associated with various diagnostic imaging studies. Employ the American College of Radiology appropriateness criteria in choosing diagnostic imaging studies. Summarize the advantages of stress echocardiography and myocardial perfusion imaging (MPI) for the assessment suspected CAD. Utilize pharmacologic stress testing with regadenoson to screen for CAD in the asthmatic patient. CME Qualifies for a maximum 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™
All About Bone Mary L. Bouxsein, Ph.D. Identify and discuss the determinants of bone strength. Summarize the factors affecting load with respect to hip and vertebral fracture risk. Review the strategies for prevention of hip and vertebral fractures. Discuss the role of dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)-based hip structural analysis (HSA) and 3-dimensional quantitative computed tomography (QCT) in the assessment of bone geometry, microarchitecture, and strength. List the independent risk factors for hip fracture. CME Qualifies for a maximum 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™
Current Concepts in Rhinosinusitis and Nasal Surgery Rakesh Chandra, M.D., Raj Sindwani, M.D. and Douglas M. Sidle, M.D. List the advantages and shortcomings of in-office and intraoperative computed tomography (CT).

Ultrasonography in Regional Anesthesia/Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Anesthesia Joseph M. Neal, M.D. and D. John Doyle, M.D., Ph.D. Interpret studies comparing ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia (UGRA) to use of peripheral nerve stimulation. Choose the most appropriate method for administering regional anesthesia to pediatric patients. Assess the safety profile of UGRA. Minimize risks associated with administration of anesthesia in the MRI unit. Identify patients who are poor candidates for MRI. CME Qualifies for a maximum 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™
Pediatric Emergencies Part 3: Trauma Judith Klein, M.D. Elaborate on the anatomic differences between children and adults that make children particularly vulnerable to trauma. Determine the likelihood of thoracic trauma based on the presence of localizing findings. Utilize the Pediatric Emergency Care Applied Research Network (PECARN) decision rule in treating minor head trauma. Apply modifications to the National Emergency X-Radiography Utilization Study (NEXUS) criteria to determine the likelihood of cervical spine injury. Discuss the significance of the seat belt sign for determining the likelihood of intra-abdominal injury. CME Qualifies for a maximum 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™
