NYU’s 38th Annual Head to Toe Imaging Conference
December 16 - December 20
“The 38th Annual Morton A. Bosniak Head to Toe Imaging Conference” offers an intensive 5 day program reviewing Neurologic, Musculoskeletal, Pediatric, Abdominal, Thoracic, Cardiac, Breast, Emergency, PET/CT and Interventional Radiology. Its continued focus on safety and quality issues, including radiation exposure and contrast reactions and their management, crosses all sub specialty areas.
Comparative effectiveness research as it applies to imaging is incorporated throughout the course, allowing immediate application to clinical practice, with an eye towards quality, safety, and the trend towards ‘accountable care organizations’. Utilization of standardized imaging strategies, developed by collaborative teams of imagers and clinicians attentive to safety, quality and economic imperatives, is a growing trend that will be emphasized, supporting the field’s imperative for integration of clinical decision support.
The course is designed to examine the practical aspects of established CT, MR, US, PET and Interventional techniques, as well as to introduce new techniques and applications for these modalities. Plenary sessions are structured to review pathologic processes and image interpretation, and to update the registrant on advanced applications and image analysis.
Based on learner’s feedback, and the proven effectiveness of ‘case-based’ learning, the format of the course has been modified to incorporate heavily case-based afternoon sessions, which integrate and apply themes and topics covered in the earlier didactic sessions. The Challenging Cases: When we were right, when we were wrong, and why format is intended to stimulate discussion and audience questions and input
An innovative feature of this course is that individual sections of the program can be attended on a daily basis, allowing course content to be tailored to the unique interests and requirements of each registrant. The purpose of this course is to provide the registrant with an overview of state-of-the-art imaging methods as they pertain to clinical practice, and to introduce advances in the field in terms of imaging technology, and disease diagnosis and management.
