Description

Pediatric neuroimaging can provide a challenge to radiology residents during call due to the fact that it is infrequently encountered in many institutions. The goal of this teaching tool is to provide radiology residents with background knowledge in pediatric brain anatomy and pathology in preparation for taking call. There is one teaching tool and one assessment tool with answers, all three of which are in PowerPoint format. Emergency neuroradiology topics discussed in this module are sutures, skull fractures, bleeds, sulci and mass effect, cisterns, and herniations. After implementing this teaching tool at our institution with all incoming residents and fellows, the error rate for cases on call dropped from 1.2% to 0.6%.

This teaching tool provides radiology residents with background knowledge in pediatric brain anatomy and pathology in preparation for taking call. It was created to close a radiology residency knowledge gap in pediatric emergency neuroimaging. Not many residents have access to pediatric emergency care facilities to experience these cases routinely. This module helps to prepare for call at institutions with pediatric patient populations and/or somewhat substitute for a pediatric emergency call experience.
