NYU's Clinical Imaging Symposium in Bermuda is organized by NYU Langone Health Department of Radiology and will be held from Jul 22 - 26, 2019 at Fairmont Southampton, Southampton, Bermuda.
This course is designed for practicing clinical radiologists in academics or private practice.
Accreditation Statement: The NYU School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Credit Designation Statement: The NYU School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 21 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
SELF ASSESSMENT MODULES (SAMs)
This program will include 7.5 SAM credits. Pending Approval from the ABR
PART 2 of MOC: Lifelong Learning and Self-assessment
At least 75 AMA Category 1 CME credits are required every 3 years. A minimum of 70 percent must be in diagnostic radiology or related areas, with the remaining 30 percent either in clinically related areas or in relevant topics such as risk assessment, ethics, statistics, the processes of continuous quality improvement, methodologies of outcomes measurement, etc.
At least 25 of the 75 Category 1 CME credits must be self-assessment CME (SA-CME) (which includes SAMs). In addition to ABR prequalified SAMs, the ABR will count all AMA Category 1 CME activities in "enduring materials" (including web-based and print) and "journal-based CME" formats toward the MOC self-assessment requirement.
The practice of radiology is constantly evolving and it is essential to stay up-to-date with the latest imaging protocols (MRI, CT, X-ray and US) and clinical interpretation. Clinical radiologists must understand and apply advanced imaging techniques in their practice for state-of-the art patient care. A wide range of topics will be covered in this program focusing on Neuroradiology, Abdominal/Women's, Musculoskeletal, Thoracic and Breast Imaging. Selected topics will include: imaging gastrointestinal emergencies, shoulder/elbow imaging and procedures, approach to imaging intracranial masses, approach to interstitial lung disease on HRCT and digital breast tomosynthesis. Additionally, CT radiation dosage techniques/protocols and MR contrast safety will be discussed throughout the program to illustrate how to optimize imaging and maintain diagnostic quality.
• Describe the new Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting Lexicon for Ultrasound developed by the ACR O-RADs committee as it applies to evaluating adnexal masses, in order to provide more consistent interpretations and improve quality and communication of imaging reports with referring clinicians.
• Describe the physics of permeability (GRASP) imaging and its clinical utility with respect to imaging the pituitary gland and brain tumors.
• Understand the new American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) Staging System for breast cancer and salient changes from the older staging system, in order to provide the most relevant diagnostic imaging reporting.
• Explain the Fleischner Society recommendations for the diagnostic criteria of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, as well as the role of HRCT in the multidisciplinary diagnosis of interstitial lung disease.
