Too late? Join us on our next Online edition of this course 27-29 Nov with Dr. Fausto Labruto Online CT Abdominal Trauma Fellowship!

This online fellowship of 3 half days includes an overview of the main mechanisms of injury, examination protocols, reading technique with tips and tricks and reporting guidelines including the injury scoring scale of the AATS.

Each module includes several short lectures. After the lectures you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases from the TMC Academy teaching file. After the individual case readings there will be additional review lectures followed by a ‘Questions and Answers’ session.

Besides the interactive lectures and the interactive case rounds, the mentor also provides a large amount of extra learning material, in the form of recorded short lectures on related topics, articles and links.

Dr. Labruto is not only a highly skilled and experienced radiologist but also a passionate lecturer and teacher which creates a dynamic learning experience.

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 to recreate the face-to-face experience.

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.
