Course Description
The 37th Annual Morton A. Bosniak Head to Toe Imaging Conference offers an intensive 5 day program reviewing Neurologic, Musculoskeletal, Pediatric, Abdominal, Thoracic, Cardiac, Breast, Emergency, PET/CT and Interventional Radiology. Its continued focus on safety and quality issues, including radiation exposure and contrast reactions and their management, crosses all sub specialty areas. Due to tremendous growth in the science of imaging and practice of radiology, it is imperative that radiologists continually update their skills and gain exposure to advances in the field. Maintenance of certification requires continued review and adoption of essential and cutting edge imaging techniques in all modalities, covering the entire body. We offer daily Self-Assessment Modules (SAMs) with SAMs credit in key areas of high import or with recent clinical advances.

Based on learner's feedback, and the proven effectiveness of case-based learning, the format of the course has been modified to incorporate heavily case-based afternoon sessions, which integrate and apply themes and topics covered in the earlier didactic sessions.

Comparative effectiveness research as it applies to imaging is incorporated throughout the course, allowing immediate application to clinical practice, with an eye towards quality, safety, and the trend towards accountable care organizations. Utilization of standardized imaging strategies, developed by collaborative teams of imagers and clinicians attentive to safety, quality and economic imperatives, is a growing trend that will be emphasized.

An innovative feature of this course is that individual sections of the program can be attended on a daily basis, allowing course content to be tailored to the unique interests and requirements of each registrant. The purpose of this course is to provide the registrant with an overview of state-of-the-art imaging methods as they pertain to clinical practice, and to introduce advances in the field in terms of imaging technology, and disease diagnosis and management.

The course is designed to examine the practical aspects of established CT, MR, US, PET and Interventional techniques, as well as to introduce new techniques and applications for these modalities. Plenary sessions have been structured to review pathologic processes and image interpretation, and to update the registrant on advanced applications and image analysis. There is a strong emphasis in the afternoon sessions on challenging cases, and how we approach them.

Educational Objectives
After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:
-Evaluate and incorporate current imaging techniques and protocols for sub specialty imaging (Abdominal, Musculoskeletal, Neurologic, Thoracic, Cardiac, Breast, PET/CT, Emergency Medicine, Interventional) into clinical practice to enable accurate diagnosis, dictate best therapy options, and assess response to therapy, which may prompt therapy modification as needed.

-Develop strategies to utilize image-guided MSK procedures, including US guided injections, as both diagnostic and therapeutic tools for patients suffering from upper and lower extremity neuropathies.

-Describe and apply the current Fleischner Society and LUNG RADS guidelines for the management of solid and subsolid pulmonary nodules and understand the rationale for the recommendations.

-Develop strategies to optimize and incorporate a gamut of studies, including CT, MR and PET, in order to accurately stage neoplasms with minimal cost and radiation exposure.

-Develop imaging protocols and techniques to optimize radiation safety and dose reduction in CT, as well as utilize MR imaging in appropriate patient populations, without compromise to diagnostic quality and accuracy of imaging.

Accreditation & Disclosure Statement
Accreditation Statement: The NYU School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Credit Designation Statement:
The NYU School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 42.50 AMA PRA Category I Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Daily Credits
Monday-Friday will contain 8.50 Category I Credits Daily

CE Credits for Technologists
Category A credits will be offered (pending approval from the ASRT)

This program will include 16.5 SAM credits. Pending Approval from the ABR

PART 2 of MOC: Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment
At least 75 AMA Category 1 CME credits are required every 3 years. A minimum of 70 percent must be in diagnostic radiology or related areas, with the remaining 30 percent either in clinically related areas or in relevant topics such as risk assessment, ethics, statistics, the processes of continuous quality improvement, methodologies of outcomes measurement, etc.

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.
