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

Course Description
The practice of radiology is constantly evolving and it is essential to stay up-to-date with the latest imaging protocols (MRI, CT, X-ray and US) and clinical interpretation. Clinical radiologists must understand and apply advanced imaging techniques in their practice for state-of-the art patient care. A wide range of topics will be covered in this program focusing on Abdominal, Pediatric, Neuroradiology, Musculoskeletal and Thoracic Imaging. Selected topics will include: imaging of head and neck emergencies, practical imaging of the pediatric patient in the emergency room, commonly missed diagnoses in ankle imaging, practical dual-energy CT in abdominal imaging and the management of incidental lung nodules. Additionally, CT radiation dosage techniques/protocols and MR contrast safety will be discussed throughout the program to illustrate how to optimize imaging and maintain diagnostic quality.

Educational Objectives
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
-Describe the vital role of imaging for the assessment of patellofemoral instability, particularly the use of radiography and MRI findings on pre-operative exams.
-Evaluate the imaging findings (sonography and MR) of common pediatric musculoskeletal infections, tumors and other mimickers in order to accurately interpret these exams.
-Describe the updated recommendations published by the Fleischner Society regarding the management of incidentally detected lung nodules on chest CT.
-Determine the best imaging techniques for the utilization of prostate MR while maintaining a high quality imaging protocol.

It is a hiking wonderland, containing miles of trails, and home to a number of outstanding geological and ecological features. Each eco-region of the park is characterized by a different plant and animal regime, as well as a different climate and elevation.
