Status Update and Emerging Trends in Abdominal Imaging 2018

Address to event

Richard B. Simches Research Center
185 Cambridge Street
Boston, MA

The goal of the proposed 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 elds.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Apply current and emerging technologies in Abdominal Imaging in the care of patients

  • Select the most appropriate and cost effective imaging studies for speci c 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
