Event Overview
Welcome message:

The 36th 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 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.


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.


- Describe and apply the current recommendations of the ACR Appropriateness Criteria for abdominal imaging in order to appropriately manage incidental findings, including differentiating lesions to ignore from those requiring work-up.


- Describe and apply the current Fleischner Society guidelines for the management of solid and subsolid pulmonary nodules and explain 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.
