Walsh Presents at American Academy of Emergency Medicine 19th Annual Scientific Assembly


Brian Walsh, MD, MBA, presented two projects at the American Academy of Emergency Medicine 19th Annual Scientific Assembly held Feb. 11-13 in Las Vegas.

The first research abstract presented was titled “Utility of Ultrasound to Diagnose Appendicitis in Community Hospitals” – the main objective was to determine the diagnostic rate and incidence of follow-up CT scans for pediatric patients who had appendix ultrasound in a community hospital. The conclusion found the utility of ultrasound to diagnose appendicitis at a community hospital seems to be limited by a high rate of non-diagnostic studies. 

The second presentation was a case report regarding a patient with a wrist injury. The final presentation Walsh gave was a mock scenario of a patient experiencing scrotal pain. The case was presented to the audience then followed with a discussion about diagnosis and other complications post-management.

Dr. Walsh is an active researcher in the fields of pre-hospital and emergency medicine. He is a frequent regional and national lecturer on topics pertaining to emergency medicine. He is an attending physician at Morristown (N.J.) Memorial Hospital.
