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 managing radiation exposure and the need for sedation/anesthesia during diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapy.


At the conclusion of the experience, participants should have an improved understanding of the technologies discussed, the benefits of medical imaging, increasing awareness of the risks of imaging, including radiation, to children and of ways to minimize these risks, and an understanding of evolving technologies, techniques and applications of imaging evaluation in children.
