Body and Pelvic MR

Earn up to 35 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

This three-day intensive practical course on abdominal and pelvic MR image interpretation will focus on the most common current indications for abdominal and pelvic MR – imaging of the liver, pancreas, pelvis and the kidneys. It aims to help a range of radiologists, from the general radiology practitioner to the moderately advanced MRI expert.

In contrast to passive lectures, participants will be provided their own PACS workstation from which actual patient abdominal MRI studies will be viewed. A formalized reporting structure will be used for the attendee to analyze their viewing of the findings. Additionally ese findings can be reviewed and discussed with the teaching faculty.

Workstation: FUJI Synapse

Program and Learning Objectives


At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Interpret at least 100 patient cases on a PACS workstation
  2. List the protocol expertise for acquiring a comprehensive examination within a 20-minute scan time
  3. Describe the rationale for the acquisition methods: which acquisition shows specific aspects of particular pathologies
  4. Identify and develop expertise in the diagnostic evaluation of a range of liver tumors and diffuse liver disease, gall bladder and diseases of the bile ducts; pancreatic malignancies and diffuse pancreatic disease; renal malignancies; and abdominal vascular, retroperitoneal and peritoneal disease; and pathologies of male and female pelvis.

What Your Colleagues Are Saying


– Self-paced review, with immediate feedback, of a large number and variety of cases is a very effective teaching method.

– Revolutionary format! Outstanding faculty! I learned an order of magnitude more than I have ever reaped from any lecture-based course.

– This course provides the ability to go through cases in a setting similar to PACS work environment but with the benefit of case review analysis and availability of experts for questions. It is a uniquely effective learning environment.

Certificate


Attendees who complete a minimum of 100 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating they meet the Maintenance of Competence case requirement as specified in the ACR Practice Guidelines for the Performance of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) for the abdomen and liver.
