Status Update and Emerging Trends in Abdominal Imaging – Harvard Medical School
September 24, 2016 - September 25, 2016$505
The goal of this educational activity is to provide a comprehensive and practical review of current and emerging applications of cross-sectional imaging modalities in the diagnosis and treatment of clinical gastrointestinal, genitourinary and gynecological conditions. The course will use a hybrid delivery model incorporating short “to the point” didactic lectures followed by case-based educational material, which will emphasize practical pointers on the acquisition, interpretation and problem solving ability of the imaging techniques with a goal towards appropriate application of clinical algorithms, implementation of relevant recent technical advances, and the formulation of differential diagnosis.
The target audience will include general or subspecialty radiologists; physicians encompassing the various gastrointestinal, genitourinary and gynecological clinical specialties, or technologists – at any level of training – who require a thorough update in the state-of-the-art abdominal imaging by leaders in the field.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Apply current and emerging technologies in Abdominal Imaging to the care of their patients
- Select the most appropriate and cost-effective imaging studies for specific clinical problems of the gastrointestinal, genitourinary and gynecological systems
- Provide a full range of diagnostic possibilities for simple and complex imaging problems of the abdomen and pelvis
- Integrate the most current pathophysiological and pathological concepts into the interpretation of these imaging studies
The course is targeted to Primary Care Physicians, Specialty Physicians, and Physician Assistants. The course may also be of interest to specialty physicians who practice in Gastroenterology, Nephrology, Oncology and Hematology, Radiology and Nuclear Medicine and Surgery.
