Conference Summary

Novel Concepts in Hepatobiliary Tumor Imaging: State-of-the-Art Imaging Techniques is organized by Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).

Online Course Start Date: 1/19/2018
End Date for CME Eligibility/Online Expiration Date: 1/18/2021

The RSNA designates this enduring material 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.

Description :
Hot Topic courses are sessions captured at past RSNA Annual Meetings covering late-breaking programs the RSNA Board of Directors deemed of particular importance. Most courses include an audio-visual presentation and corresponding transcript. Hot Topic courses are free to members.

Content Areas :
• Gastrointestinal Radiology
• Oncologic Imaging
• Ultrasound

• Estimate the molecular background (hepatocyte membrane transporter expression) of enhancement mechanism on gadoxetic acid enhanced MR imaging in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).
• Describe the reason of usefulness of gadoxetic acid enhanced MR imaging in early diagnosis of HCC.
• Identify molecular subtype of HCC by gadoxetic acid enhanced MR imaging and apply to personalized medicine.
• Review the technical explanation and the non-linear nature of MBIR as compared with FBP reconstruction.
• Recognize the point of optimal MBIR setting for hepatic dynamic CT.
• Display hepatic dynamic CT images reconstructed with FBP, IR, and MBIR.
• Review various imaging-based approaches to evaluate perfusion characteristics of the liver and hepatocellular carcinomas.
• Recognize strengths and weaknesses of imaging modalities for evaluation of liver perfusion.
• Illustrate the potential role of perfusion imaging in the management of liver cirrhosis and HCC.
• Identify properties of Sonazoid contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) and realize the differences of other contrast agents.
• Describe the typical enhancement patterns of HCC during the vascular phase and defects during the post-vascular phase on Sonazoid CEUS.
• Recognize Sonazoid CEUS improve the diagnosis of HCC using defect reinjection technique.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
