80043934 - Hot Topics in Body CT Scanning: What You Need to Know
Saturday, May 5, 2018 6:00 AM - Tuesday, May 8, 2018 5:00 PM Sheraton Music City Hotel, Nashville, TN


Description
The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagno¬sis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols, to contrast injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the “room for error” has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring datasets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys or pancreas have changed with the role of multiphase acquisition and post processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practice skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a four-day period. The goal of the meeting is to improve your ability to do the best studies possible for optimal patient care in your own practice.

80042357 - Johns Hopkins Pediatric Regional Anesthesia Workshop: Live Scanning on Standardized Patients and Simulator Training on Phantoms
Saturday, June 16, 2018 7:30 AM - 4:10 PM Chevy Chase Bank Conference Center, JHH, Baltimore, MD





DESCRIPTION
The use of ultrasound imaging techniques in anesthesia is rapidly becoming an area of intense interest to those involved in the field of perioperative care. Ultrasound imaging techniques will increase the provider confidence and lead to more reliable peripheral nerve blocks. There is increasing evidence that ultrasound guidance is increasing block success rate over nerve stimulations techniques. Further, the block quality resulting from ultrasound guidance has led to a marked decrease in both intra-operative and post-operative opioid usage.

PNB administration is relatively new, the majority of currently practicing anesthesia providers are not trained in its use. With the increased use and availability of ultrasound machines, many more regional anesthesia techniques are utilized and newer techniques are being incorporated. At most institutions, nerve block training is taught via lectures and live scans on a standardized patient, however, the use of needles for a nerve block is not taught We often see a learning gap of using needle and probe. In this workshop, we are not only focused on illustrating lectures and live scans on patients, we also focus on using phantoms of each block so participants can practice blocks in real time.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for pediatric anesthesiologists, fellows and residents.
