Join Penn Radiology at the Fairmont Pacific Rim in beautiful, family friendly Vancouver, British Columbia. This course will focus on practical information to build interpretative skills that allow the generation of succinct differential diagnostic considerations, appropriate reports and recommendations to our clinical colleagues and patients. It will cover timely, common topics in brain, head & neck, spine/MSK and chest/cardiac that we see around-the-clock. From arrival to our daily work places, to attending a broad spectrum of multidisciplinary clinical conferences, to our shifts after hours - you will be steady and ready! Image interpretation, modality advances, and protocol selection will be emphasized in a series of didactic presentations and interactive case-based sessions. Self-Assessment Modules (SAMS) qualified by the ABR will be offered daily. And... explore the outdoors, have steak on the lake, or run in the sun for fun.
