Radiologists must be aware of the changes and developments in all areas of radiology (MR , CT, US, X-ray) including Musculoskeletal, Thoracic, Breast, PET and Abdominal Imaging in order to maintain certification and optimize patient care. It is imperative that radiologists stay up-to-date on the latest imaging protocols and be aware of technological advances and how to incorporate them into their everyday practice.
Several important topics to be covered include: imaging interstitial lung diseases, quality initiatives in radiology, mammography screening, PET/CT in colorectal cancer and breast cancer and US of the foot/ankle. The essentials presented in this program are meant to be integrated into the participants? practices in an effort to improve their current knowledge, imaging skills and ultimately improve patient care.
-Describe the use of US of the musculoskeletal system as a cost effective imaging technique to image a variety of musculoskeletal abnormalities.
-Evaluate the critical factors influencing radiation dosage for CT imaging in order to achieve improved radiation safety and imaging performance.
-Describe the most up-to-date non-invasive imaging technologies in the evaluation of the pre- and post-operative thoracic aorta, and identify the new information that surgeons and interventionalists require for treatment planning.
-Describe the current recommendations for screening mammography, including current guidelines and controversies.

SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES (SAMs)
PART 2 of MOC: Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment
At least 25 of the 75 Category 1 CME credits must be self-assessment CME (SA-CME) (which includes SAMs). In addition to ABR prequalified SAMs, the ABR will count all AMA Category 1 CME activities in "enduring materials" (including web-based and print) and "journal-based CME" formats toward the MOC self-assessment requirement.
