Summer Radiology Symposium: Abdominal, Musculoskeletal, Thoracic, Breast & Interventional Imaging
June 29 @ 12:00 am - July 3 @ 12:00 amUSD $1,075
This course is designed to demonstrate how to accurately identify imaging findings that narrow the differential diagnosis for Thoracic, Abdominal, Musculoskeletal, Interventional/Vascular and Breast Imaging in order to ensure optimal patient care. Maintenance of certification requires continued review of essential imaging techniques in all areas of radiology. While addressing up-to-date imaging protocols in these areas, this course will cover topics including: small bowel obstruction and lessons learned from surgical correlation/follow-up, pediatric MR imaging pitfalls in the ankle, women’s health in IR, breast MR/US and lung cancer screening. The course will help radiologists and clinicians optimize imaging management in terms of appropriate selection of imaging parameters, sequences and exam selection, tailored to specific diagnoses or clinical conditions.
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
1. Describe radiographic and cross-sectional imaging consistent with Chopart’s joint injuries of the ankle and explain how these injuries are often misinterpreted as an ankle sprain.
2. Describe technical advancements in breast imaging, including: tomosynthesis, breast US and fast MRI.
3. Describe the advances in the treatment of deep venous disease and how to interpret pre and post imaging studies.
4. Describe the new management guidelines for lung cancer screening with chest CT exams (Lung RADS version 1.1.) including the latest pertaining to the risk of malignancy associated with both solid and subsolid nodules.
