ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM51 - Strategies in Imaging the Moving Child - Imaging 3.0

May 18, 2016 8:00am ‐ May 18, 2016 9:30am


Description

The purpose of the session is to highlight strategies for imaging the moving child, including emphasizing Imaging 3.0 and patient centered care which include radiologists as team leaders. Currently, over half of pediatric studies are performed by 'adult ' radiologists with only basic pediatric imaging training. Not only is the pathology often unique, but the acquisition of MR images can be fraught with difficulty due to an uncooperative child or crying infant. With a growing concern that sedation may have long term implications to development, the use of sedation vs the acceptance of faster but limited MR studies will also be discussed. Developed in conjunction with the Society of Pediatric Radiology.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define the sedation safety issues related to the pediatric patient.
  2. Discuss algorithms for imaging pediatric patients without sedation
  3. Define the role of child life specialists in Imaging 3.0
  4. Discuss how health care reform impacts these pediatric imaging strategies
