Set in one of the finest ski resorts in the northwest, this world-class radiology conference is focused on practical topics.

Statement of Need

Advances in medical imaging continue to occur quite rapidly, making the clinical practice of radiology extremely demanding. The information presented in this course familiarizes the participant with newly 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.

Target Audience

This educational activity has been designed to meet the needs of radiologists in general diagnostic practice who are determining which radiologic tests to order and how to evaluate and manage their patients.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Describe supplemental breast cancer screening options
  • Recognize when ultrasound is an appropriate first imaging modality of a palpable mass
  • Summarize similarities and differences in children and adults for pancreatic disorders
  • Comprehend the rationale for screening and surveillance for HCC in at-risk patients
  • Use LI-RADS to characterize liver lesions in patients who are at high risk for developing HCC
  • Differentiate chondral, osteochondral, and subchondral injury
  • Explain the role of MRI for diagnosis and staging of iron overload

Elements of Competence

This CE activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge, patient care and procedural skills, and practice-based learning and improvement.
