Errors in Trauma Radiology. Proudly sponsored by Everlight Radiology

05 October 2021 - 05 October 2021
Australia
Venue - Online

Join Dr John Vedelago, Medical Director for EverLearning at Everlight Radiology and specialist in emergency radiology, as he explores themes relevant to errors, safety and quality in trauma radiology and how systems of review and reporting may affect detection of major injuries. He will present an analysis of why radiologists make errors in trauma reporting, what types of errors are seen with relatively increased frequency, and how a system of major trauma reporting can have an impact on error rates and patient outcomes. 

Key learning points include:

  • To understand the types of errors made in trauma imaging, and why we, as radiologists, make them.
  • To review the specific injury types that are commonly missed in trauma imaging and why these findings are missed.
  • To explore ways we can reduce the likelihood of missing important imaging findings in trauma patients.

Hosted by A/Prof Dinesh Varma, Chair of the Australian and New Zealand Emergency Radiology Group and Deputy Director & Head of Emergency and Trauma Radiology, The Alfred Health & Monash University.
