Thoracoabdominal Emergencies II

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2025

Take the Course


Course Overview

15-minute radiology CME lecture uses annotated still images and edited, annotated cine files to demonstrate examples of different emergency presentations and pathologies. The cases are culled from an internal teaching file, our extensive quality assurance and medical malpractice databases, and from my own clinical experience. Each case is preceded by a factual graphic that depicts the gender and age demographics, incidence, risk factors, mortality, and CT sensitivity for each condition. This particular segment presents cases of aortic endocarditis, ASDs with Eisenmeinger syndrome and paradoxical embolism, and aortic dissection. Discussions of additional complications such as ring abscess with endocarditis and hemopericardium with aortic dissection are included.

Learning Objectives


  1. Identify common emergency presentations and their demographics, incidence, risk factors, mortality, and amenability to diagnosis by CT.
  2. Learn typical CT findings associated with emergency presentations. 
  3. Understand the role of CT in the emergency diagnosis and disposition of acutely ill patients.
