This online Chest trauma imaging fellowship that provides skills and knowledge in the interpretation of the trauma chest radiograph and CT. Optimisation of imaging protocols will also be discussed to enable the reporting radiologist provide a timely clinicoradiological opinion to the attending trauma clinicians that informs the most appropriate management plan in the patient’s best interest.
Each session includes several short lectures following which the attendee will have the opportunity to practise on anonymised chest trauma imaging cases selected from the TMC Academy teaching file archive. These cases will be reviewed during a group case discussion session with a “Question & Answer” session concluding each training day.
TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.
Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.
In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.
This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
