Subspecialist Tips for the Multispecialist

Categorical Course

Participate in Honolulu, HI or Online • Sunday, May 5–Tuesday, May 7
Leading experts will provide an intensive three-day review in multispecialty imaging tailored to the practicing radiologist. The program is designed to provide a clinically-focused update on the most current imaging guidelines, terminology, and disease classifications. Faculty will present scenario-based examples and pearls of wisdom that multispecialist radiologists can implement in their daily practice.

Participants can earn up to 20 CME and SAM credits for their participation in this course. Canadian MOC Section 3 Credit is also offered. See below for more information on educational credit.

Needs Assessment

It is important that radiologists are mindful of the most current imaging guidelines, terminology, and disease classifications. Incorporating consistent terminology and up-to-date national and international recommendations into imaging reports can boost communication between radiologists and clinicians, resulting in better patient care. Imaging reports that are consistent, focused, and based upon evidence-based medicine are expected in the current environment of value-based reimbursement and healthcare payment reforms.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is radiologists who read and interpret imaging in multiple subspecialties.
