When so many diagnostic imaging options are available to nurse practitioners, it can be confusing to know which are the most appropriate for use in a time-sensitive acute care situation. This CE offering will empower you to prioritize your patients’ needs and choose the most efficient diagnostic technology for each case.

In this engaging session, you will review key diagnostic principles, such as the test-treatment threshold and sensitivity versus specificity. Information from the American College of Radiology Appropriate Use Criteria is also included for guidance on when diagnostic imaging is warranted. The remainder of the presentation is devoted to the intricacies of X-rays, computed tomography, MRIs, nuclear imaging, and more. After completing this talk, you will be able to discern the appropriate diagnostic for any acute care situation.
