Four Week Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course is organized by American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) and will be held from Sep 09 - Oct 04, 2019 at AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center, Silver Spring, Maryland, United States of America. The Four Week Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course presents a comprehensive review of radiologic imaging with emphasis on the principles of radiologic-pathologic correlation. Approximately 95 percent of U.S. radiology residents attend the course at some point during their training. Additionally, a large number of radiology residents and fellows from Canada, Spain, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Asia and South America regularly attend the course. The faculty includes current and former members of the Department of Radiologic Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) as well as other experts in the field. All imaging modalities are discussed and the lectures cover the radiologic presentation of a broad range of diseases and pathologic basis from all organ systems. Although the course may be beneficial at any stage of training, residents generally attend in their second, third or fourth year, as most lecturers assume that participants have at least some experience with a variety of imaging modalities. Objectives • Apply the principles of radiologic-pathologic correlation to the interpretation of radiologic studies. • Understand the clinical and treatment implications of diseases with characteristic radiologic appearances. • Refine differential diagnoses in various organ systems based on specific imaging features related to their underlying pathology. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

Target Audience: Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists. Credits: 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ 14 ACPE Credits 14 (part II) MOC points in medical knowledge in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program 14.0 Contact Hours 6 Hours of Pharmacology for NPs Program Purpose: Of those successful with weight loss, > 60% will regain their lost weight by the end of year one following their initial weight loss success. Fewer than 15% of adults participate in regular exercise and over 65% of adults are sedentary. Lifestyle and behavioral interventions form the foundation for the management of cardiovascular risk factors to achieve improved short- and long-term outcomes, including measures of quality of life. Hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome and inflammation are the primary modifiable components arising from obesity and overweight. Research has demonstrated that successful management of obesity and overweight requires both sustained lifestyle changes with frequent follow-up as well as the simultaneous medical management of cardiovascular risk factors. The increasing prevalence of obesity and overweight in patients impacts the clinical decisions, management strategies and health outcomes of all health care clinicians, regardless of their clinical specialty. Thus, this conference has been designed with the overall objective to equip healthcare providers with the most current scientific clinical research examining the magnitude of the problem, genetic and environmental causes, pathophysiology, and complications related to the obesity epidemic. This understanding will be translated into the clinical setting throughout the conference with current evidence-based strategies for the practical treatment of obesity and its related comorbidities. Topics: • The impact of obesity as a chronic disease on our health care system. ○ Examine the pervasiveness of obesity as a chronic disease, the propensity of interrelated co-morbidities, and the impact on health. • Mechanisms linking excess adiposity to metabolic dysregulation. ○ Describe how excess adiposity is linked to metabolic dysregulation. • Mood disorders associated with insulin resistance and obesity. ○ Assess how selected obesity-related complications, such as mood disorders, eating disorders, and sleep apnea impact management strategies. • Current and future considerations in pharmacotherapy for obesity and overweight. ○ Evaluate new recommendations in the use of current pharmacologic agents and the future development of agents for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and overweight. • The role that genetics plays in the obesity epidemic. ○ Distinguish the relationship between genetics and environment in the etiology of obesity. • The efficacy of bariatric surgery and the management of bariatric patients. ○ Describe the efficacy of bariatric surgical procedures on the pathophysiology and management of type 2 diabetes and obesity. • Lifestyle and behavioral strategies and interventions for the management of diabetes, obesity and overweight. ○ Examine the interrelationship between physical exercise, diet, intestinal microbiome and the body immune system that underlie rational management of obesity. • The impact of obesity as a chronic disease on our health care system. ○ Examine the pervasiveness of obesity as a chronic disease, the propensity of interrelated co-morbidities, and the impact on health. • Mechanisms linking excess adiposity to metabolic dysregulation. ○ Describe how excess adiposity is linked to metabolic dysregulation. • Mood disorders associated with insulin resistance and obesity. ○ Assess how selected obesity-related complications, such as mood disorders, eating disorders, and sleep apnea impact management strategies. • Current and future considerations in pharmacotherapy for obesity and overweight. ○ Evaluate new recommendations in the use of current pharmacologic agents and the future development of agents for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, obesity, and overweight. • The role that genetics plays in the obesity epidemic. ○ Distinguish the relationship between genetics and environment in the etiology of obesity. • The efficacy of bariatric surgery and the management of bariatric patients. ○ Describe the efficacy of bariatric surgical procedures on the pathophysiology and management of type 2 diabetes and obesity. • Lifestyle and behavioral strategies and interventions for the management of diabetes, obesity and overweight. ○ Examine the interrelationship between physical exercise, diet, intestinal microbiome and the body immune system that underlie rational management of obesity.
Anal Cancer is organized by European Society for Radiotherapy Oncology (ESTRO) and will be held from Sep 25 - Oct 02, 2019. Target Audience: These online delineation workshops are aimed at junior clinical or radiation oncologists who want to improve their contouring skills or at more senior specialists who want to refresh and validate their knowledge and skills in this field. Description: The Anal Cancer On Line Workshop held by a great team of expert professors, with a long expertise on the topic, gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge in contouring this rare disease. The clinical case, contoured by each participant gave me the chance to refresh the entire spectrum of staging of anal tumors, new developments in diagnosis and treatment and, of course, contouring. The faculty provided short hands-on lectures, which focused on guidelines and on questions/issues raised by the participants between sessions. All participants received an "on-line documentations" containing all lectures and key points articles. The On Line Workshop not only enriched my professional background but also served to extend these knowledge in the clinical practice. Furthermore, the "on line" modality allows to follow the course anywhere. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
