New this year, ISIS is offering two specialized symposia during the meeting,
Advanced Imaging and Ultrasound for the Spine Practitioner. The Advanced
Imaging course will give attendees a small-group opportunity to review
numerous spine cases to learn how to systematically examine large data
sets, filter out extraneous information, and focus on critical findings under
the guidance of top spine radiologists. The Ultrasound for the Spine
Practitioner session will feature lectures including the advantages and
disadvantages of musculoskeletal ultrasound; tissue characterization;
indications and risks; and evidence supporting the feasibility and performance of selected cervical injections using ultrasound.
Back by popular demand, ISIS will also offer the ISIS Accreditation Course in
Evidence- Based Medicine (EBM): Part I. Assessing Studies of Treatment
and the Coding, Billing and Reimbursement session. In the EBM course,
attendees will gain skills necessary to critically assess studies of treatment
and implement an evidence-based approach to clinical decision-making.
The Coding, Billing and Reimbursement session is a great opportunity to
receive expert answers to your intricate coding questions.
Space is limited for these additional offerings, register today.
Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to network with the world’s
best in our specialized field. What a phenomenal week this will be! I look
forward to seeing you there.
