      Learning Objectives

      Following this course, the participant should be able to choose the appropriate ordering of x-rays, CT scans or MRI studies; employ interpretation skills that will improve patient outcomes resulting from recognition of normal vs. abnormal vs. poor technique; identify x-ray pathology that is commonly seen, commonly missed and how to prevent the latter in the clinical setting. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes. When indicated in the specific objectives, emphasis will be on ACR Appropriateness Criteria and evidence-based medicine with a focus on diagnosis, treatment and when to refer. There is a need for practitioners to maintain their skills in “first-read” x-ray interpretation, which are most needed in emergency rooms and urgent care environments. Since Radiology is one topic in which practice and repeated exposure improves skills and outcomes, this course was designed and intended for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician.
