Target Audience
This course is designed for practicing clinical radiologists in academics or private practice.

Course Description
This course will concentrate on updates in Abdominal, Emergency, Musculoskeletal, Neuroradiology and Breast Imaging. All of the lectures will address scanning parameters and how scanning protocols can be optimized in order to minimize the radiation exposure of patients, while maintaining diagnostic quality examinations. Clinical radiologists must stay up-to-date on the latest imaging techniques and the program will review the latest topics including: Abdominal trauma imaging, post-operative knee imaging, CNS tumor imaging, breast tomosynthesis and thyroid imaging. The expertise presented in this program is meant to be integrated into the participants? practices in an effort to improve their current knowledge, imaging skills and ultimately improve patient care.

Educational Objectives
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
-Discuss current literature on breast MRI as a breast cancer screening tool and compare MRI with conventional mammographic and sonographic breast cancer screening.

-Analyze the new ACR published recommendations by the Thyroid Imaging, Reporting and Data System (TI-RADS) committee regarding guidance for a standardized approach to the interpretation and management of thyroid nodules on the basis of sonographic appearance

-Describe the importance of the revised classification of CNS tumors and the relationship between the appearance of tumors on imaging and their molecular/genetic profile, in order to increase the preoperative knowledge of a lesion and potentially improve decision-making in patient care.

-Describe the imaging appearance of both the normal post-operative knee and of complications in the post-operative knee

Santa Barbara, California
Nestled on the California coast between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains (90 miles from Los Angeles), Santa Barbara is graced by sunny skies and a mild year-round climate - earning its reputation as the American Riviera. Epitomizing the casually sophisticated California lifestyle, Santa Barbara is among America's most coveted destinations with beautiful grounds and oceanfront views.

The town's Spanish colonial heritage is reflected in romantic architecture featuring thick adobe walls with deeply recessed doors and windows, graceful archways, wrought-iron gates and red-tiled roofs. With a small and exclusive population of just 89,000 people, Santa Barbara vibrates with activity - from quaint tree-lined State Street to intriguing art galleries, museums and the interactive Sea Center. Santa Barbara County is also a popular wine region, featuring nearly 100 vineyards. Adventure continues on the ocean, with sport fishing, sunset cruises and kayaking in the nearby Channel Islands. Take a walk or hop on a bike to enjoy the best of Santa Barbara right around Four Seasons Resort, from the wines to the waves.
