Title: Internal Medicine – Radiology: Chest X-Ray; Skeletal Imaging; Contrast/Radiation
Faculty: Adam R. Guttentag, M.D., Ryan K. Lee, M.D., M.B.A.

Original Release Date: July 1, 2018  Expiration Date: July 1, 2021

TOPIC 1: Basic Chest X-Ray Interpretation.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Develop a systematic approach to interpreting a chest radiograph.
  2. Assess a chest radiograph for technical factors that may hide or simulate disease.
  3. Determine whether a chest radiograph demonstrates air space disease and localize it in the lung.

TOPIC 2: Overview of Skeletal Imaging: Pearls and Pitfalls.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Determine which imaging studies are indicated and which studies are not indicated in the setting of acute trauma.
  2. Develop an approach to evaluating skeletal radiographs.
  3. Detect radiographic findings in pediatric radiographs.

TOPIC 3: Contrast and Radiation Issues in Radiology: What a Clinician Should Know.

Upon completion of this session, the participant should be able to: COMP

  1. Determine which patients are at increased risk for adverse reactions to intravenous iodinated contrast for CT.
  2. Apply evidence based guidelines to decide whether it is safe to order intravenous contrast for MRI examinations.
  3. Describe factors leading to increased radiation exposure to patients from medical imaging.
  4. Select appropriate tests to order so as to minimize patient radiation dose without sacrificing diagnostic accuracy.
