This week-long course is designed for radiologists in clinical
practice, and is intended to provide an overview of common
clinical concerns in diagnosis. Lectures by leading UCSF
Faculty will focus on practical tips, pointers and recognition
of potential pitfalls that will aid the radiologist in the safe
interpretation of images in the daily setting.
Subspecialties covered will include cutting-edge topics in
abdominal, thoracic, breast, neuro and musculoskeletal imaging;
as well as the appropriate utilization of CT, MR, US and
interventional procedures in the corresponding organ systems.
“Meet the Professor” Daily Sessions
Each of the faculty will dedicate a session for the purpose
of discussing interesting and challenging cases, answering
attendee questions, responding to inquiries on clinical scenarios
and protocols, and reviewing current standards of care and
evolving imaging methods.

1. Select imaging approaches for oncology patients and patients
with musculoskeletal/joint conditions;
2. Identify opportunities to screen for cancer, including for lung
and breast cancer;
3. Recognize common pitfalls in medical imaging, including
imaging after loco-regional therapies, in patients with
suspected pulmonary embolism, and in patients being
screened for breast cancer;
4. Apply knowledge of the strengths and weakness of imaging
5. Diff erentiate between common and uncommon imaging
manifestations of chronic disease, including injuries of the
knee, shoulder, liver, pancreas and spleen;
