X-Ray: Pediatric Imaging: Normal Characteristics and Beyond (Motley, Dec 14, 2019)
A lecture course allowing the doctor interested in pediatrics to explore the imaging characteristics of normal skeletal development as well as radiographic patterns of common pathologies affecting the pediatric population. Topics include but are not limited to indications for imaging a pediatric patient, traumatic conditions, neoplasms, metabolic disorders, scoliosis, and poisoning. Doctors will gain a greater appreciation for the normal radiographic appearance of the immature skeleton as well as deviations from normal.
By the end of the seminar, you will be better able to:
- Predict the clinical consequences and radiographic appearances associated with failure of normal embryological development of the skeleton.
- Differentiate abnormal patterns from normal stages of pediatric skeletal development on radiographic examinations.
- Identify key clinical indicators for performing imaging examinations of pediatric patients.
- Formulate the most probable diagnosis or a precise differential diagnosis based on imaging manifestations of common pediatric conditions.
- Recognize when appropriate follow-up examinations are needed and which health care professional should be consulted.
