Critical Images in Emergency Medicine CME
Critical Images in Emergency Medicine, written by award-winning author and feature editor forCritical Decisions in Emergency Medicine, Joshua S. Broder, MD, FACEP, provides a collection of images from emergency medicine practice illustrating many of the daily challenges emergency physicians face - recognizing which patients require imaging, identifying imaging findings essential to the patient's acute presentation, and rapidly translating diagnostic findings into therapeutic measures.
Cases cover patients of all ages and with a variety of conditions and feature multiple imaging modalities: plain radiographs, CTs, MRIs, and the most common types of emergency department ultrasound (cardiac, transabdominal, and transvaginal.)
Each case begins with a brief patient description followed by a key image and a multiple-choice question to focus your attention. Turn the page (or swipe your iPad) to see the answer and a detailed explanation, with up-to-date references, as well as a labeled version of the critical image - a great feature for readers who may be unfamiliar with the visual findings described in the text explanation.
The clinical vignettes are easy-to-read, "bite sized" reviews.
Thistextbook, also available as anApp, is an excellent self-study tool for in-service examinations and board certification tests - both written and verbal.
