ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM07 - Traumatic Brain Injury: Clinical Scenarios and Introducing Head Injury Centers of Excellence

May 15, 2016 3:30pm ‐ May 15, 2016 5:00pm


Description

The purpose of this session is to provide interpretation of different clinical scenarios related to TBI. The automated response system will be used to get feedback from the audience on their interpretation or recommendation for various TBI findings before the scenarios are presented, and then again after the scenarios are presented so that we have a measure of learning outcomes. Residents and fellows may be presenting their cases. Intended audience is non-neuro radiologists and neuroradiology residents and fellows, however neuroradiologists may also benefit. We expect the audience to improve their ability to identify and classify TBI findings after this session. In addition, members of the Head Injury Institute will give a brief overview to the audience on the Head Injury Centers of Excellence (HICOE) and their efforts to standardize reporting and imaging. Developed in conjunction with the ACR Head Injury Institute .

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify imaging features associated with the following extraaxial injuries: epidural hematoma, subdural hematoma, non-aneurysmal SAH and herniation.Identify imaging features associated with the following extraaxial injuries: epidural hematoma, subdural hematoma, non-aneurysmal SAH and herniation.
  2. Identify imaging features associated with the following intraaxial injuries: increased intracranial pressure, DAI/TAI (diffuse/traumatic axonal injury), parenchymal contusions, cerebral edema, and Duret hemorrhages.
  3. Describe at least two requirements for participating in HICOE.
