Radiology After Hours: Acute Diagnoses On Evenings And Weekends

March 25 - 28, 2019

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort
Nassau, Bahamas

Rapid changes in health care and recent technological advances have steadily increased the demand for real-time imaging interpretation — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As a result, radiologists in most major health care centers as well as in private practice have been asked to provide after-hours, "final" interpretations. This program reviews commonly seen disorders in all the key areas of the body to assist radiologists covering shifts outside their comfort zone. Over four days, faculty provided participants with practical information to enhance image acquisition and interpretation skills and identify the best modality for a given clinical presentation. Selected topics within neuroradiology, abdominal imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, chest and pediatric radiology were covered. Daily case conferences and the opportunity to earn SAM credits were included.
