- Incorporate strategies into your own practice to avoid cranial CT scanning in patients with minor head trauma who are at low risk for intracranial injury.
- Explain the importance of selective imaging in pediatric head injuries.
- Explain the differences in cancer risk from CT scan between pediatric and adult patients.
