Objective:

This session has three sections. First is Skull Base and Neck, which identifies the easily overlooked findings and diagnostic errors when interpreting emergent traumatic and non-traumatic conditions involving the skull base and neck. It also illustrates and analyzes the factors that may contribute to errors of perception or interpretation using a case based approach. This section discusses strategies and diagnostic clues to minimize errors. The second section is Brain, which highlights examples of common pitfalls encountered in emergency imaging of the patient with a CNS disorder and show examples of disease mimics that may be confounding to radiologists. Third section is Craniocervical Trauma, which identifies the easily overlooked findings and diagnostic errors when interpreting emergent traumatic conditions using a case-based approach with emphasis placed on CT angiography. It discusses strategies and diagnostic clues to minimize errors.
