Emergency Abdominal Imaging Workshop

Venue: The Apex City of Bath Hotel, James Street West

A comprehensive one-day “hands-on” course aimed at consultants and trainees who want to refine their emergency abdominal CT reporting skills.

Attendees will sit in pairs at iMac workstations running Osirix viewing software. The day alternates between short lectures and longer “hands-on” case review sessions during which delegates will have the opportunity to review cases while faculty assist and discuss image interpretation. During the day you will review at least thirty examinations covering a wide range of emergency findings. The sessions include bowel obstruction, peritonitis, perforation, ischaemia, haemorrhage, post-operative abdomen, acute pancreatitis and abdominal pain in the pregnant patient.

The faculty has extensive experience of emergency abdominal CT and have been selected for their highly-rated teaching skills and approachability.

Questions and discussion are encouraged through the whole of the day.

RCR have awarded 6 CPD points for this workshop.

Tuesday 4th February / Wednesday 5th February 2020
