Abdominal Imaging

Earn up to 31 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 25 SAM Credits

This 3-day course focuses on how to improve your abdominal imaging service. It will cover up-to-date CT protocols, latest guidelines on managing incidentalomas, how to report complex post-operative CT, customizing reporting templates for cancer staging, with special reference to what the surgeon needs to know. The course staff offer their unique approaches to reporting many CT findings which are seen daily, such as dilated bile ducts, small volume nodes and misty mesentery. The course also discusses “Do not miss” cases in the major abdominal organs.

The course will cover how to deal with focal liver, pancreas, adrenal and kidney lesions; pitfalls in liver, pancreas and kidney imaging; pitfalls in postoperative CT; and newer CT technology, including dual energy CT.

The course will teach physicians how to accurately acquire and interpret cases affecting various abdomen and pelvic organs and vascular structures performed in both routine and challenging scenarios.

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.
