Educational Objectives

Upon the completion of this activity, the learner will be better able to:

  • Assess pediatric diseases through various imaging modalities in the context of significant developmental changes from infancy to adulthood.
  • Provide imaging recommendations to ordering clinicians based on safe and up to date practices.
  • Create impactful, value-added radiologic reports for clinicians.


Target Audience

This course is intended for community and academic radiologists (as well as residents and fellows) with a particular interest in pediatric imaging. This primarily will include general (or non-pediatric fellowship trained) radiologists for whom pediatrics is only a portion of their practice. Fellowship-trained pediatric radiologists will also benefit from this course, particularly those who practice pediatric radiology in a small group/center or who need a review of specific pediatric imaging topics outside of their subspecialty practice.
