2014 Annual Meeting & Postgraduate Course


The 2014 meeting theme is The Pediatric Radiologist Consultant: Bridging Patient Care and Innovation to Improve Child Health. The program emphasizes the role of the pediatric radiologist as a consulting physician and the importance of close collaboration and communication with our clinician colleagues to assure optimal care of our pediatric patients. The meeting will build on the successful model from prior years with rich use of clinician speakers.  The Postgraduate Course and workshop speakers will embrace the theme and will emphasize "what is the question to be answered" when performing an imaging study.

Objectives

The Society for Pediatric Radiology Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course will provide pediatric and general radiologists with an opportunity to do the following: 

1. Summarize the most current information on state of the art pediatric imaging and the practice of pediatric radiology. 

2. Describe and apply new technologies for pediatric imaging. 

3. Describe and apply basic principles for implementing quality and safety programs in pediatric radiology. 

4. Discuss trends in research concerning the care and imaging of pediatric patients. 

5. Identify common challenges facing pediatric radiologists, and possible solutions. 

6. Evaluate and apply means of minimizing radiation exposure during diagnostic imaging and image guided therapy. 


At the conclusion of the experience, participants should have an improved understanding of the technologies discussed, increasing awareness of the costs and benefits of diagnostic imaging in children and of ways to minimize risks, and an improved general knowledge of pediatric radiology, especially as it interfaces with clinical decision making.
