Common things commonly arise on imaging studies, so when you discover something that looks unusual, do you attempt to investigate the finding further yourself, or do you refer the patient to another practitioner for a diagnosis? And when you receive the diagnosis, do you know what to do next? In this session, we will discuss and explore the key radiologic features of 10 entities, some of which may be commonly seen, some of which may be variations of normal anatomy or hamartomas, and others of which may be “true lesions” that may require action and follow-up. Part 1 will include the first 5 diagnoses.
Participants will learn:
- to develop a systematic strategy for investigating a radiologic finding.
- to identify the key radiologic features of common anomalies or abnormalities, and understand these features in the context of the biologic process from which they have arisen.
- to understand the necessity or urgency of a radiologic finding for action and follow-up.
