Ordering the correct imaging studies to address various clinical signs and symptoms in an efficient and cost effective manner is complicated and is in constant flux based on newly published data and emerging technologies. This half day educational event reviews current appropriate imaging work up to address common clinical signs and symptoms encountered in the out-patient primary care setting. Clinicians will leave with new knowledge and resources to help diagnose and treat their patients with complicated but common medical problems.
Primary Care Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners and Nurses
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Confidently choose the appropriate imaging work up to address common clinical signs and symptoms encountered in the outpatient primary care setting
- Identify differences in patient profiles which delineate use of MR, CT, US or X-ray as the imaging medium.
- Illustrate when to order imaging for common clinical signs
- Receive and incorporate updated protocols on specific screenings that involve imaging
