Free RABitt - XR with CT correlation for trauma/injuries seen in the emergency department - focussing on case studies.

 

Presenter: Vicki Koi

Imaging the trauma patient can sometimes be challenging! This lecture will highlight pathologies seen in the trauma setting using plain Xray and correlation with CT scanning. The chosen case studies will demonstrate the importance of both imaging techniques with the severity of some injuries not always being aligned on plain Xray and CT. You will also be provided with tips and tricks for patient positioning, scan protocols and image optimisation in this challenging trauma environment.
