American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR)



This new member benefit features discussion from leading experts on some of AJR’s most controversial, cutting edge articles—broadcasted live, online, with CME. 

The 2018 AJR Live Webinar Series was made possible in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Siemens Healthcare.

Upcoming Webinars

NM/MI Theragnotics – 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT and 177Lu DOTATATE Therapy

Free registration for this month's webinar, August 15, 2018!

Broadcasted Live and Online 12:00 noon–1:00 pm, Eastern Time
Moderator: Rathan Subramaniam, MD, PhD, MPH
Speakers: Erik Mittra, MD, PhD, CCD and Rathan Subramaniam, MD, PhD, MPH

This AJR Live Webinar offers 1 CME Credit.

ARRS is offering free registration for this month's AJR Live Webinar. 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT is the most sensitive imaging test available to detect somatostatin receptor (type 2) expressing tumors such as Gastro intestinal pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (GEP NETs), bronchial carcinoids, paragangliomas, neuroblastomas, phaeochromocytomas and medullary thyroid cancers. Low and intermediate grade tumors tend to take up DOTATATE homogenously and avidly. 177Lu DOTATATE therapy is approved for treatment of patients with GEP NETs which are locally advanced or un-resectable and progressing despite somatostatin analogue therapy. This webinar will cover the interpretation of 68G DOTATATE PET/CT, pitfalls, mimics and principles and practice of 177Lu DOTATATE therapy.

A foundational review of 68Ga DOTATATE PET/CT and 177Lu DOTATATE therapy for practicing radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians, nuclear medicine technologists and residents is valuable to enhance the service to our patients, impact patient care and outcomes.

Postoperative Imaging of Sarcomas

The American Cancer Society estimates that 13,040 new soft tissue sarcomas will be diagnosed in 2018. Comprehensive patient care requires the radiologist to review relevant pathological, surgical, oncologic and radiation therapy notes in addition to pre-operative, baseline postoperative and subsequent imaging studies before interpreting any new studies. Interpretation of these studies is challenging as post-treatment changes can be difficult to differentiate from sarcoma recurrence.

This webinar will provide the unique opportunity to review multimodality imaging characteristics of postoperative musculoskeletal sarcomas and provide the opportunity for interactive discussion afterwards.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify criteria for determining high risk/high grade sarcomas.
  • Recommend imaging surveillance interval for patients with high risk factor sarcomas.
  • Compare imaging modalities that may be helpful as problem solving tools in selected case of tumor recurrence.

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education activities for physicians.

The ARRS designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s). Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
