This year’s program will feature an in-depth focus on:
- Abdominal and Pelvic Imaging – Full day
- Cardiothoracic Imaging – Half day
- Musculoskeletal Imaging – Half day
- Neuroradiology – Full day
The content of this program was developed for radiologists,radiology residents and fellows and has also proven to be of significant interest to sonographers and medical imaging technologists.
This program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, literature surveys/reviews, consultation with experts in the field, and the experience and needs perceived by members of the planning committee. As well, subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations was reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program on current topics in health care gaps in medical imaging.
