CHOP Open-access Medical Education: Radiology Course Presentations

Introducing CHOP OPEN!

We have launched our new and improved learning platform, CHOP OPEN. Learn more and register for free.

This seminar focuses on radiology and was delivered in Salzburg, Austria, from November 10 – 16, 2019. The lectures are prepared by staff from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in weeklong modules that are prepared in affiliation with the American Austrian Foundation's Open Medical Institute. The lectures of this seminar are presented in the order of the live event.

Introduction to Pediatric CNS Tumor Imaging

Radiology – Introduction to Pediatric CNS Tumor Imaging

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand the epidemiology of pediatric CNS tumors, discuss current imaging modalities in diagnosis and follow ups, and share the impact of updated brain tumor classifications.

Pediatric Spine Tumors

Radiology – Pediatric Spine Tumors

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand common tumors of the pediatric spine based on their location, as well as discuss imaging characteristics of these tumors.

Advanced Imaging in CNS Tumors

Radiology – Advanced Imaging in CNS Tumors

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand basic principles of various advanced MR imaging techniques, the utility of these methods in pediatric brain tumors, and review case based evaluation of these techniques.

Neuroblastoma Staging

Radiology – Neuroblastoma Staging

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand the current staging system for neuroblastoma, image defined risk factors, international neuroblastoma risk group staging system (INRGSS), and MIBG curie scores.

Pediatric Chest Masses

Radiology – Pediatric Chest Masses

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand a refined approach to CXR assessment, pediatric chest mass pathology, and the role for advanced imaging using case reviews.

Bone Tumors

Radiology – Bone Tumors

At the end of this session, learners will be able to recognize imaging findings of tumors, formulate a differential diagnosis, recommend work-up and protocols, and provide pertinent information used for staging.

Liver Masses

Radiology – Liver Masses

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand guiding principles to liver tumors in children, techniques for imaging, and differentiating features between common benign and malignant tumors.

Pediatric Renal Tumors

Radiology – Pediatric Renal Tumors

At the end of this session, learners will be able to understand pediatric renal tumors with associated high and low risk outcomes, factors of age in diagnosis, and useful imaging techniques.
