Event Overview
Welcome message:

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.
