Interpretation of Low Dose Kidney Stone CT

Through a variety of real life 3D data sets, this interactive course is designed for radiologist, and other clinicians using CT images, to improve diagnostic proficiencies in low radiation dose kidney stone CT.

Course Director(s): Mannudeep K. Kalra, MD | Alexi Otrakji, MD | Christopher Moore, MD | Melissa Shaw, BS

Optimizing Scan Protocol and Radiation Dose in Kidney Stone CT

The radiation dose for kidney stone CT course is intended to help participant with the nuances of CT scan parameters, protocol building and radiation dose optimization especially for evaluation of renal colic. The course will specifically help in understanding different aspects of CT image quality pertinent to CT protocols for renal colic, scan parameters and their effects on CT radiation dose as well as the need for distinct and optimal CT protocols for renal colic evaluation.

Interactive Tool to Teach Management of Contrast Media Reactions

The symptoms of contrast reaction fluctuate from mild to severe (anaphylactic) reactions. In addition, the symptoms of contrast reaction are classified to allergic like and physiologic reactions. Recognizing these symptoms and their severity is the cornerstone of the proper clinical management. Learning the symptoms and management of contrast reactions through video-based course that simulate the real environment of imaging exam room could be more efficient than conventional lectures.
Course Director(s): Alexi Otrakji, MD | Iris M Otani, MD | Swati Goyal | Hillary Kelly MD | Garry Choy, MD, MS | Sanjay Saini, MD | Gloria Salazar, MD

Pitfalls of contrast reaction management: How to avoid them?

Errors in management of anaphylaxis secondary to contrast media administration can lead to life-threatening patient safety events. Effective management for such events depends on recurrent training of staff with didactic educational tools. Given the incidence of errors reported in the literature and our institutional experience with high fidelity simulation training program, we structured this course to highlight the important points
