The Big Sky Conference is an opportunity to learn about the rapidly changing advances in medical imaging. The information presented at this event allows you to become familiar with the emerging material and provides opportunities to discuss and exchange ideas with the faculty. The program was conceived, developed, and structured as a result of the input from attendees of previous CME meetings and the need perceived by our faculty.

This conference is designed for radiologists in general diagnostic practice who are determining which radiologic tests to order and how to evaluate and manage their patients.
