Joshua Broder, MD, FACEP, understands that undoing myths—particularly those tied to diagnostic imaging—is a difficult practice. But it still needs to be done.
“It’s really intolerable in a scientific age for us to rely on information simply because someone told it to us in the past,” said Dr. Broder, director of the emergency medicine residency program at Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina. “It’s one of the challenges of translating medical knowledge into a practice.”
Hence, Dr. Broder is presenting “Ten Fatal Imaging Myths That Should Change Your Practice.” The session aims to teach attendees to avoid myths and misconceptions that could result in delays or, at worst, potentially fatal misdiagnoses.
