Thoracoabdominal Trauma Part 2

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2026

Take the Course


Course Overview

This 15-minute CME course reviews a collection of traumatic injuries to each of the relevant vessels/organs of the thorax, abdomen, and pelvis. Each case is in cine format with annotations and includes icons representing reporting accuracy, patient outcome, specific injury mechanism, and expected mortality. This lecture was recorded at Practical Radiology 2023. 

Learning Objectives


  1. The importance of aortic evaluation in trauma cases (high mortality, often difficult to detect, often associated with other severe injuries.)
  2. Appreciate the appearance of typical/classic injury patterns to each individual organ and vessel in the thorax and abdomen. 
  3. Understand the potential distraction that estimation of the injury vector can cause.

Great Calls Pt. 2

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2026

Take the Course


Course Overview

Our radiologists make great calls every day and night! Through our Great Call of the Month program radiologists recognize each other’s laudable work be it on subtle findings or difficult diagnoses. In this 15-minute CME course, we’ll review the most commonly submitted diagnosis for Great Call of the Month.

Learning Objectives


  1. Discuss the importance of using a standardized search pattern on every examination.
  2. Identify secondary signs of acute pulmonary embolism on CT.

Artificial Intelligence and Epidural Fluid Collections

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2026

Take the Course


Course Overview

This 15-minute CME course presents data showing that epidural fluid collections are the most commonly missed pathology in emergency imaging as well as the most expensive from a medical malpractice perspective. The presentation includes twenty examples of epidural hemorrhage and abscess found by AI but missed by radiologists.

Learning Objectives


  1. Understand the frequency with which epidural fluid collections are missed on CT.
  2. Understand the importance of missed epidural fluid collections from a clinical and medical malpractice perspective. 
  3. Appreciate the typical imaging appearance of missed epidural fluid collections so as to recognize them in future studies.

Endotracheal Intubation Pt. 2

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2026

Take the Course


Course Overview

Multiple paired case presentations of radiographs and companion CT scans demonstrating a number of complications associated with endotracheal intubation. Such complications are common in emergency medicine imaging and radiologists play a critical role in identifying them.

Learning Objectives


  1. Understand the importance of proper endotracheal tube placement and the measurements and anatomic standards applied in establishing it.
  2. List the important complications of endotracheal tube placement. 
  3. Appreciate the importance of underlying or associated diseases (i.e. ankylosing spondylitis) in developing complications of endotracheal intubation.

CTA Extremity Pt. 2

0.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™

Cost: Free

Expires: 12/31/2026

Take the Course


Course Overview

Case presentations of the most common injuries and pathologies affecting the extremity vasculature. These are challenging cases for our radiologists with serious consequences in the balance. Focus is on the breadth of injury/pathology but also on subtler imaging distinctions such as extravasation vs pseudoaneurysm.

Learning Objectives


  1. List the major injuries and pathologies affecting the extremity vasculature.
  2. Understand the subtle imaging differences between extravasation and pseudoaneurysm. 
  3. Appreciate the incidence of pathologies distal to a focal or regional vessel abnormality, such as dissection or emboization.
