Educational Outreach

The LSU Health Shreveport Department of Radiology is dedicated to education not only locally, but regionally, nationally and internationally. We currently offer educational outreach for trainees and physicians in both radiology and other medical specialties:

  • Our Radiology for Family Medicine Physicians Teleconference Program provides family medicine residents and physicians practical knowledge of diverse imaging modalities interpretation. The teleconferences are taught from by faculty from both LSU Health Shreveport and Ochnser Medical Center in New Orleans and are open to any family medicine residency program. 
  • Our International Teleconference Program provides up-to-date education in diagnostic imaging and image-guided interventions to Latin American and Caribbean radiologists and non-radiologists. The faculty is composed of radiologists from around the globe who are recognized in their subspecialty. These teleconferences are primarily taught in Spanish.
  • Our annual Radiology for the Non-Radiologist conference is geared towards physicians, trainees, and students in non-radiology medical specialties. The course is designed to help the non-radiologist decide the appropriate study for their patients' conditions and what information these studies can provide. This event is held every fall and carries CME credit.

Family Medicine Teleconference Program

About the program:

Radiology for Family Medicine Physicians is an educational program created to provide Family Medicine residents and physicians practical knowledge of diverse imaging modalities interpretation and to foster. 

Teleconferences are taught by faculty at LSU Health Shreveport and Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans. 

Program objectives:

  1. To learn indications, contraindications and alternatives for imaging of diverse conditions.
  2. To be aware of the risks of radiation exposure from medical imaging.
  3. To develop basic interpretation skills by learning practical normal and abnormal findings in: radiography, ultrasound (US), computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine including PET/CT.

 

How it works:

The teleconference program is free of cost to participating institutions and aired via Cisco WebEx video conferencing. Teleconferences are held the second Wednesday of each month at 12:00 noon.

To join:

Radiology for the Non-Radiologist

About the program:

Many clinicians are sometimes confused about what Radiology has to offer them for the work-up of their patients. Following this course, the participant should better understand the different radiologic studies available to them for working up conditions covered in this conference. The should improve patient outcomes, help lower medical costs for unnecessary exams ordered, and potentially help lower the radiation doses to the patient.

Target Audience:

The target audience for this activity includes primary care clinicians (Ex. Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Physician Assistants), Residents, Medical and PA students, Nurse Practitioners, and other healthcare providers.
