Hot Topics in Body CT Scanning: What You Need to Know is organized by Johns Hopkins Medicine (JHM) and will be held from May 29 - 31, 2020 at Drury Plaza Hotel Nashville Downtown, Nashville, Tennessee, United States of America. Target Audience: This activity is intended for radiologists and radiologic technologists Accreditation: Credit Designation Statement The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 18.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Other Credits This activity has been approved by AHRA, the approving RCEEM: The Association for Medical Imaging Management for a maximum of 16.5 Category A, ARRT continuing education credits. You must attend each session in its entirety to obtain credit. No partial session credit will be awarded. This activity meets all Certified Radiology Administrator (CRA) renewal credit criteria and has been approved for up to 16.5 continuing education credits in the following CRA domains: Operations Management. Overview: The rapid evolution of multidetector CT (MDCT) has impacted all aspects of patient diagnosis from cardiac imaging to vascular imaging to hepatic imaging. The development of these new scanners requires a close look at all aspects of our CT programs ranging from our scan protocols, to contrast injection to the use of oral contrast. The new clinical applications require a better understanding of our scanners as the “room for error” has decreased with scanners routinely acquiring datasets in under 10 seconds. New applications have evolved from coronary CTA to virtual colonoscopy to dual energy imaging, to name a few. Classic applications like imaging the liver, kidneys or pancreas have changed with the role of multi-phase acquisition and post processing techniques becoming more critical. This has been both a time of change and a time of excitement. This meeting will provide the attendee with an improved understanding of the role of MDCT today and will help them improve their practice skills and knowledge base. Whether it is designing new scan protocols or learning new skill sets, this meeting will be a catalyst for increasing your core competencies through a series of lectures and hands-on training over a three-day period. Objectives: • Comprehend the current state of the art of CT scanning today and its impact in clinical practice • Define the role of post processing techniques like MPR and 3D imaging including Cinematic Rendering in clinical practice • Discuss the issues of radiation dose in CT and how to minimize dose exposure for your patients • Recognize how to manage incidentalomas in the kidney, adrenal, and pancreas • Define the role of cardiac CT in practice today including scan technique and optimal study design • Increase your knowledge of vascular imaging including the role of 3D imaging in these applications • Optimize your CT scan protocols including the use of oral and IV contrast agents • Increase your knowledge in abdominal imaging with special focus on renal, liver, kidney, and bowel imaging • Recognize the role of CT in the evaluation of musculoskeletal pathology • Identify the role of CT in imaging the spine • Study the latest developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and their potential impact on your practice Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

May 29, 2020 | CME : 1 | MOC : 1 | Hours : 1 | Free
Clinical Updates and Expert Guidance in Prostate Cancer is organized by i3 Health and will be held on May 29, 2020. Accreditation: Physicians: • i3 Health designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. • Successful completion of this CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 1.0 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine’s (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider’s responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit. Physician Assistants: American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) accepts certificates of participation for educational activities approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ from organizations accredited by ACCME. Physician assistants may receive a maximum of 1.0 hour of Category 1 credit for completing this program. Course Description: In recent years, the therapeutic armamentarium for advanced prostate cancer has expanded rapidly to now include novel hormone therapies, second-generation taxanes, radiopharmaceuticals, immunotherapy, PARP inhibitors, and bone-targeted and bone metastasis-targeted agents. In this virtual symposium, Judd Moul, MD, Duke University School of Medicine, will review emerging data on novel therapies for metastatic castration-sensitive, metastatic castration-resistant, and nonmetastatic castration-resistant disease. Case challenges will be used to illustrate strategies for optimizing treatment in the context of confounding patient and tumor variables. Learners who attend the live virtual symposium will be able to engage in these case studies via audience polling. At the end of the activity, learners will have the opportunity to present questions to Dr. Moul and gain expert perspectives on prostate cancer management. Statement of Need: Prostate cancer is the most common tumor type affecting men in the United States, with an estimated 174,650 new cases reported each year. Typically, androgen deprivation therapy is administered for progressive disease. However, castration resistance or unresponsiveness to androgen deprivation therapy or to antiandrogens frequently develops over time. The transition from castration-sensitive to castration-resistant disease has yet to be understood and represents a significant unmet need. Nonmetastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) is a highly heterogeneous disease process with a dearth of effective treatment options. Metastatic CRPC is the primary cause of prostate-related mortality, accounting for an estimated 31,620 deaths annually. Median overall survival remains less than 2 years. Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Evaluate recent efficacy and safety data on novel therapeutic strategies for patients with castration-sensitive/resistant nonmetastatic prostate cancer • Evaluate emerging efficacy and safety data on novel therapeutic strategies for patients with castration-sensitive/resistant metastatic prostate cancer • Assess recent study findings on novel combination and sequential treatment strategies for prostate cancer and their implications for current practice Faculty: Judd W. Moul, MD, Professor of Urologic Surgery, Duke University School of Medicine
