Bariatric and non-bariatric surgery is common nowadays because surgical stomach resection is the main and potentially curative option for gastric malignancy and bariatric surgery has become a popular treatment of morbid obesity. Radiologists need to be familiar with the most common bariatric and non- bariatric operations and to understand postoperative CT anatomy as only this knowledge allows to detect the most important acute postoperative complications.
– Present the most common bariatric (gastric bypass, mini gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomy) and non-bariatric (total and subtotal gastrectomy, Billroth II) operations
– Demonstrate and explain normal postsurgical CT anatomy
– Show acute complications related to these commonly performed surgical operations

Traumatic brain injury results in a considerable number of deaths and permanent disabilities worldwide. Imaging plays an essential role in the evaluation, diagnosis and follow-up of patients with traumatic brain injury. It is especially beneficial in non or limited examinable patients due to coma or sedation. Traumatic cervical spine and spinal cord injuries are common and potentially devastating lesions with a variety of clinical findings, from a minor pain up to major neurologic deficits and death. The primary objectives of imaging in patients with neck trauma are the accurate depiction of the spinal axis, the detection of surgical emergencies, and the identification of unstable injuries. Radiology residents at night shift need to be familiar with the most common head and neck traumas and their correlates in imaging.
– The most common head and neck traumas and their correlates in imaging that a resident should acknowledge at night shift.
– Algorithms when to perform which radiological imaging modality.
– Typical secondary complications related to these commonly encountered head and neck traumas
