Interactive case presentations are designed to allow audience participation in decision making through the use of remote electronic voting. At
key points during case presentation, the audience will be presented with a question in multiple-choice format and will be asked to vote for the
appropriate or preferred response. The results of voting will be displayed graphically in real time as audience members register their votes. These
results will form the basis for continued discussion and resolution of the case. Cases will cover a wide array of organ systems and techniques. These
sessions are open to all registrants; however, only a limited number of voting devices will be available.
