Consultant and SASG Anaesthetists
Also suitable to senior STs

About

  • Case based learning with short introductory lectures, offering guidance and practical knowledge
  • Interactive discussions, what is relevant and significant, tips and take home messages that will change your interpreting practice
  • Lecture on 'Introduction to CT' (Following delegate feedback)
  • Stimulating, interactive, challenging cases, and very importantly, immediate feedback with around 100 cases to interpret and report

The Course will assist the Intensivist

  • to understand how radiological investigations can best be used to assist in the management of critically ill patients (covering head and spine, chest, abdomen)
  • to interpret radiological investigations performed on critically ill patients to acquire a systematic approach to image interpretation
  • to understand what not to miss and why, including life threatening problems, and common errors to avoid
  • to know what investigation to ask from the Radiologists and when to ask for help!
  • to understand the key guidelines and protocols
  • to understand the roles, advantages, disadvantages of modalities, i.e. Plain XR, US, CT and MR

the aim and Outcomes

To provide the busy, ‘hands-on’ Consultant Intensivist with a practical, stimulating and comprehensive update on the best use of imaging in the assessment of the critically ill patient:

  • practical (case-based learning);
  • stimulating (interactive, challenging cases, immediate feedback)
  • comprehensive (head and spine, chest and abdomen).

By the end of the course, the delegate will have:

  • (1) a comprehensive understanding of good/best imaging interpretation and reporting practice in intensive care;
  • (2) improved imaging interpretation skills;
  • (3) greater confidence in his/her advanced practice; and
  • (4) identified skills and knowledge gaps, if any, relevant to his/her practice, and clear ways by which these can be addressed.

  • Introduction to CT
  • Acute Non-Traumatic CT Head
  • Trauma CT Head
  • C-Spine
  • CT Chest
  • Supine CXR [compared to CT, US]
