Case-Oriented Fast Focused Effective Education
Emergency radiology requires consistent, timely, and accurate imaging interpretation with the rapid application of clinical knowledge across many areas of radiology practice that have traditionally been fragmented by organ system or modality divisions. This text unifies this body of knowledge into an educational resource capturing the core competencies required of an emergency radiologist. This book of 85 index cases is organized by clinical presentations that simulate real-life radiology practice in the emergency department. Companion cases spanning the differential diagnoses and spectrum of disease provide hundreds more examples for a fast, focused and effective education called COFFEE (Case-Oriented Fast Focused Effective Education). This text can serve as a ‘go to’ resource for radiologists, as well as any other physicians working in the emergency department. It will be an excellent companion for radiologists preparing for initial board certification or re-certification by the American Board of Radiology.
