Abdominal Imaging

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

This is an intensive practical course on abdominal and pelvic MR image interpretation that will be focused on the most common current indications for abdominal and pelvic MR – imaging of the liver, pancreas, pelvis and the kidneys. It is aimed 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, these findings can be reviewed and discussed with the teaching faculty.

Workstation: FUJI Synapse

Program and Learning Objectives


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

  • Understand how to protocol CT studies for various clinical indications in the abdomen.
  • Learn the multimodality investigation of liver, biliary, pancreatic and renal diseases.
  • Confidently deal with complex CT including postoperative imaging.
  • Apply algorithms to manage incidental lesions in the abdomen and 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–SPR Practice Parameter for the Performance of Computed Tomography (CT) of the Abdomen and Computed Tomography (CT) of the Pelvis.
