In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Penn Medicine Department of Radiology.  Postgraduate Institute for Medicine is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.


 Jointly provided by Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Penn Medicine.




The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in this activity.

The credit breakdown by day:

Day 1:               5.5

Day 2:               5.0

Day 3:               5.5

Day 4:               5.0


Participants in this activity will have an opportunity to earn Self-Assessment credits (SAM). These modules meet the ABR’s criteria for a self-assessment activity in the ABR Maintenance of Certification program.


Upon registering and completing the activity evaluation, you will be able to download your certificate.



This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who perform and interpret imaging examination. The content will also be beneficial to breast surgeons, neurologists, gynecologists, and gastroenterologists who order imaging procedures.

Event Overview
Welcome message:

Penn Radiology is excited to be able to offer this course in Puerto Rico.  The four-day program is designed to present the most up-to-date information on evolving guidelines and imaging techniques, and offer practical tips to enhance image interpretation skills which are of particular importance to diagnostic radiologists in clinical practice.  A broad range of lecture topics in breast, neuroradiology, thoracic, abdominal, head and neck, and gynecological imaging will be given by our expert, subspecialized faculty.  Emphasis is placed on describing diagnostic pitfalls and the indications for complementary use of different imaging modalities.  Several case review presentations will re-enforce the lecture material and allow for group discussion.  Additionally, self-assessment modules (SAMS) will be offered throughout the week.



This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who perform and interpret imaging examinations.  The content will also be beneficial to breast surgeons, neurologists, gynecologists, and gastroenterologists who order imaging procedures.

After experiencing damage and loss from Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico is back and more vibrant than ever! The streets of San Juan are alive once again with the bustle of vendors and aromas that make San Juan the culinary capital of the Caribbean. The blue cobblestones of Old San Juan contrast with the modern Condado district that our host hotel now thrives in.


The Condado Vanderbilt Hotel

In 1917, the Vanderbilt family, one of the wealthiest in America at that time, hired the prominent architectural firm that built New York's Grand Central Terminal to build their hotel.  One million dollars later, the hotel opened with great excitement as the first luxury hotel in Puerto Rico, marking the beginning of  high-end tourism to the area. 

Today, the Condado Vanderbilt hotel boasts two 11-story towers showcasing the rich history of its past with modern amenities such as high definition screens, Apple TVs in every room, and Five-Diamond butler service on every floor.  Seven restaurants and bars offer guests numerous choices along with options in other nearby hotels and along the streets of Condado.
