The Resident Roentgen File: April 2022

ARRS In-Training Members, next month, join imaging professionals from across the globe for the 2022 ARRS Annual Meeting to receive clinical education you can trust on your schedule. Participate live in New Orleans, LA or virtually and interact with world-renowned faculty in real time, then extend your learning with on-demand streaming sessions and Online Posters for one full year after the meeting, including:

  • Radiology Review Track—Comprehensive case reviews across 11 subspecialties, included with your registration fee.
  • Resident Track—Content covering subspecialty domains, physics problems, and noninterpretive skills.
  • Leadership, Fellowships, and Work-Life Balance—The first of these four, 30-minute lectures focuses on enhancing leadership abilities and interview skills, fully understanding the fellowship process, and addressing specific concerns regarding work-life balance for radiology trainees.
  • Fellowship Directors Panel—This ARRS Resident Advisory Subcommittee-curated lecture series concludes with a full hour of expert panel discussion, a Q&A session featuring multiple fellowship directors, as well as dedicated time for social interaction and professional networking.

Emergency imaging has steadily increased over the last decades, due to increases in both the number of patients treated and the amount of examinations performed. On Friday, June 3, Critical Case Findings and Practice Management in the ED will capitalize on the unique perspective and multisystem expertise emergency imagers bring to interpreting critical thoracic, abdominal, pediatric, and neuroradiological examinations.

Every month, AJR Editor in Chief Andrew Rosenkrantz handpicks an article from the “yellow journal” specifically for ARRS In-Training Members. April’s article is an AJR Expert Panel Narrative Review: Imaging Assessment of Pancreatic Cancer Resectability After Neoadjuvant Therapy.

Co-moderated by radiology residents Christine E. Boone and Cynthia Czawlytko, AJRChats feature select authors discussing their article on Twitter, focusing on how the findings will impact clinical practice.

Also each month, AJR Journal Club authors write questions for ARRS In-Training Members to encourage more thorough participation in evidence-based medicine.

April’s article examines how imaging practice leaders should consider efforts to match interpretation of subspecialty examinations with radiologists’ fellowship training in the acute community setting.

Subscribe to AJR Podcasts to hear our Resident and Fellow Podcast Editors critique articles and provide synthesized overviews of timely research for both in-training and practicing radiologists.

MRI of the Lesser Joints is this month’s Web Lecture, also specially selected for ARRS In-Training Members by our own in-house experts. Packed with practical information, residents and fellows will:

  • Describe the MRI appearance of commonly encountered pathology of the finger and thumb
  • Discuss MRI findings of the wrist
  • Review key features of MRI of the forefoot
