Cervical Spine Imaging in Patients with Trauma
Course description: This course will review the role of imaging when evaluating patients with cervical spine trauma, focusing on plain film radiography. Discussion of the importance of knowing current imaging algorithms and understanding when imaging has a role in establishing diagnosis will be emphasized. This course will also prepare the clinician by improving knowledge of the range of cervical spine fractures. A targeted approach to evaluation will be reviewed to improve interpretation skills. Additionally, utilizing radiology case studies, clinicians will learn to differentiate potential diagnostic pitfalls when interpreting radiographs of their patients that have sustained trauma.
