UW Emergency Radiology Review provides extensive coverage of key topics in emergency radiology. Led by experts from the University of Washington School of Medicine, it focuses on epidemiology and mechanisms of trauma, clinicians’ expectations of imaging, and an integrated imaging approach to injuries of the head, neck, spine, torso, pelvis, and appendicular skeleton. This CME program will help you to:
  • Promptly decide the appropriate imaging studies to perform in emergency situations
  • Identify less common clinical conditions presenting in the emergency setting
  • Revise imaging protocols to optimize diagnostic accuracy while minimizing radiation
  • Correctly interpret emergency imaging studies and recognize when additional imaging is indicated
