A Systematic Approach to Describing Fractures
Clinicians, including practitioners in primary care and across numerous specialties, are essential to the interpretation of imaging for correlating clinical presentation with fracture identification on plain radiographs. A comprehensive review of radiographs lets clinicians document findings accurately and communicate these findings to colleagues, specialists, and patients. This activity reviews fracture terminology that clinicians need to provide better understanding of the injury and direct appropriate management.

Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension
Idiopathic intracranial hypertension is a rare disorder of elevated intracranial pressure with normal cerebrospinal fluid composition and without intracranial pathology. This condition primarily affects obese women of childbearing age and frequently causes headaches, vision loss, diplopia, tinnitus, and nausea. The incidence of idiopathic intracranial hypertension is rising along with obesity rates. Primary care and ED clinicians must recognize the signs and symptoms of idiopathic intracranial hypertension and intervene promptly to control symptoms and to preserve vision. This activity reviews the clinical presentation and management of patients with idiopathic intracranial hypertension.
