Four years ago, the BCRS initiated a project, in partnership with Trauma Services BC, to develop Provincial standards for trauma imaging.  Provincial Imaging Guidelines for Major Traumahave now been established to facilitate the right imaging for the right trauma patient at the right time. The optimal management of major trauma requires that clinicians, radiologists, and other medical and technical personnel work seamlessly together to ensure timely and accurate diagnosis and treatment. This includes using standardized protocols to minimize unnecessary imaging examinations and establishing consistent reporting procedures to avoid critical delays and to ensure that healthcare resources are used both effectively and efficiently.

This new CME opportunity will bring together a diverse group of diagnostic imaging and clinical professionals to help you navigate these new guidelines.

The event will open with a review of the Clinical Practice Guidelines Developed with Trauma Services BC followed by a discussion on gauging Trauma System Performance focusing on the diagnostic imaging perspective.

Trauma topics to be covered include:

  • Whole Body CT in the Stable and in the Unstable Patient
  • Head Trauma
  • Facial Fractures
  • Thoracic Trauma
  • Solid Organ Injury
  • Intestinal and Mesenteric Injuries
  • Pelvic Fractures
  • Spine Trauma
  • Pediatric Imaging in Trauma
  • Future Directions of Trauma Imaging
