This emergency radiology course is intended for practicing radiologists, physicians-in-training, and emergency medicine providers.
It is especially useful for radiologists practicing in trauma centers and emergency departments, and for those providing after hours emergency radiology coverage (eg: nighthawk type services). Although the course is primarily targeted at physicians, it may also be helpful for CT technologists and others involved in emergency imaging.
