CHOP Open-access Medical Education: Radiology Course Presentations

This seminar focuses on Pediatric Radiology. The lectures are prepared by Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia staff in weeklong modules that are prepared in affiliation with the American Austrian Foundation Open Medical Institute and presented in Salzburg, Austria. The lectures of this seminar are presented in the order of the live event.

Normal Pediatric Skeleton and Mimickers of Disease

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to understand different patterns of development of normal variants in the immature skeleton, identify normal variants in the elbow and shoulder, and identify normal variants in the femur and knee.

Presenter: Sudha A. Anupindi, MD

Introduction of MRI: Basic Techniques and Protocols

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to understand the need for MRI in the assessment of musculoskeletal pathology, identify the most essential MRI sequences for assessment of musculoskeletal pathology, and become familiar with the methods of optimizing MRI examinations in children.

Presenter: Sudha A. Anupindi, MD

Imaging Upper Extremity Trauma

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to recognize common imaging patterns of pediatric injury at the shoulder, elbow, and wrist, be familiar with the patterns of injury and their imaging appearance in the overhead throwing athlete, and be familiar with the use of ultrasound for evaluation of upper extremity injuries.

Presenter: Ann M. Johnson, MD

Imaging Pediatric Lower Extremity Trauma

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to recognize common imaging patterns of lower extremity trauma in the acute and chronic setting, recognize extensor mechanism injury patterns, understand variation in anterior cruciate ligament injury in a pediatric population, and understand the goals of imaging in the setting of pediatric ankle fractures.

Presenter: Ann M. Johnson, MD

Bone Tumors

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to develop a systematic approach to describe bone lesions, identify features of bone tumors that aid in developing an accurate differential diagnosis, and understand what normal patterns of bone marrow looks like on MRI.

Presenter: Nancy A. Chauvin, MD

Bone Lesions

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to discuss the imaging appearance of common and uncommon pediatric bone tumors, recognize radiographic features that warrant advanced imaging with CT and MRI, and discriminate between aggressive and non-aggressive bone lesion features.

Presenter: Nancy A. Chauvin, MD

Pediatric Cardiac CTA at CHOP

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to identify different methods for acquiring cardiac images, discuss bolus timing during cardiac CTA acquisition in infants, and discuss structured analysis and reporting of cardiac CTA images.

Presenter: Andrew Mong, MD

Heterotaxy

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to identify the radiologic work-up of heterotaxy patients, understand the systematic approach to complex cardiac disease using CTA, and identify important noncardiac manifestations of heterotaxy.

Presenter: Andrew Mong, MD

Musculoskeletal Ultrasound

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to discuss what roles ultrasound has in imaging the musculoskeletal system, recognize the sonographic appearance of normal children’s joints, and evaluate common pediatric musculoskeletal conditions with ultrasound.

Presenter: Nancy A. Chauvin, MD

Common Fractures: The Child Who Fell

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to recognize the radiographic features of common elbow and forearm fractures in children, recognize the radiographic findings of pediatric buckle fractures in the hands and feet, and identify the radiographic features of common fractures of the tibia and foot in children.

Presenter: Sudha A. Anupindi, MD

Resources for Understanding Pediatric Imaging

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to understand the five essential questions to ask when preparing a lecture, identify the methods of communicating information that captivate an audience, and recognize the practical points of preparing a powerpoint.

Presenter: Sudha A. Anupindi, MD

Imaging of Pediatric Bone Infections

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be familiar with common patterns of acute and chronic bone infection on multiple imaging modalities, understand the imaging strategy of pediatric bone infection that recognizes patient age and epidemiologic patterns, and be familiar with the imaging appearance of other pathologic processes that may mimic bone infection.

Presenter: Ann M. Johnson, MD

Imaging Arthritis: a Multimodality Approach

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to discuss the subtypes of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and their presentations, understand the pathophysiology of arthritis, and describe what role imaging has in the evaluation of JIA.

Presenter: Nancy A. Chauvin, MD

Pulmonary Hypertension and Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to identify the current radiologic work-up of pulmonary hypertension at CHOP, identify indicators of pulmonary hypertension on CTA, and identify indicators of bronchopulmonary dysplasia on CTA.

Presenter: Andrew Mong, MD

Rings and Slings and Aberrant Coronary Anatomy

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to identify normal and abnormal course of the coronary arteries, identify radiologically recognizable causes of stridor, and identify how to work up a suspected vascular ring.

Presenter: Andrew Mong, MD
