Course Description
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.

Educational Objectives
-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.

As of February 6, 2014


Hump Day is mid-point of the scheduled ski season and the resort has been buried with more than 15 feet (450 centimeters) of snow since October 1. It has been one of the best starts to the season in many years, highlighted by an early opening and a mega-storm at the end of January that blanketed the resort with nearly four feet of snow in less than a week. One day alone saw more than 24 inches fall in a 24 hour period. Colorado has had the most consistent snow in the country this year and the high altitude has preserved every inch of it.

We are currently 100 percent open across the four mountains with all 5,547 acres of terrain including the steeps of Highland Bowl and the Cirque in Snowmass, the bonus gated terrain on Aspen Mountain, and the glades and groomers on Buttermilk.

The Westin Snowmass Resort
Opened in December 2012, the Westin Snowmass offers true ski-in/ski-out access to Snowmass Mountain and is located in the center of Snowmass Village! After a monumental renovation project to the Snowmass Village, guests now have the luxury of a full-service Westin Resort in the heart of this amazing mountain village. Experience the ultimate Snowmass location, an all new modern design, a deeply relaxing atmosphere and the rejuvenating full-service environment only a Westin can provide. After a day on the slopes, enjoy the top-rated apres ski and nightlife of Snowmass/Aspen!

Snowmass, Colorado
Breathtaking, exhilarating and huge are just a few ways to describe the crown jewel of Colorado---Snowmass. Often called "the world's best ski area," the Snowmass Mountain offers the most ski trails than any other mountain in the US.

Hit the slopes, test your endurance on our cross-country trails, or simply soak in the slope-side hot tubs and take in the vista views. Don't know how to ski? Take advantage of award-winning ski and snowboard schools. The Snowmass Ski School is staffed to offer every level of lesson (both skiing and snowboarding) in an amazing variety of languages. Snowmass has something for every level of skier. There are plenty of groomers and cruisers for novice skiers while our steeps, half-pipes and three terrain parks will challenge the best of the best.
