Randomized Controlled Trial to Improve Head CT Interpretation by Emergency Physicians
Joshua Broderís research focuses on head CT interpretation by emergency physicians. A randomized, controlled trial of two methods to improve head CT interpretation is open for enrollment. The trial compares the effect of an online interactive teaching module to a text article. Subjects will interpret 20 head CTs using an online PACS interface, before and after completing the educational intervention. This trial is approved by the Institutional Review Board at Duke University.
