Course Description:
Penn Radiology presents this virtual CME course is designed to offer the most up-to-date information on emerging guidelines and imaging techniques. Diagnostic radiologists in clinical practice will serve from the practical tips expert faculty will strive to intensify their image interpretation skills. A broad range of lecture topics in the breast, thoracic, thyroid, and abdominal imaging will be addressed. Our subspecialized Penn faculty will explain diagnostic pitfalls and frame the indications for the complimentary utilization of various imaging modalities. As an added feature, course registrants can also enroll in live and interactive breakout sessions where faculty will present hot topics in their fields. These sessions are limited to the first 20 course registrants.

Learning Objectives - Breast:
At the conclusion of this CME activity, attendees will be able to:
• Analyze methods to optimize mammographic screening (i.e., increase cancer detection while minimizing false positives)
• Describe the roles and potential benefits of digital breast tomosynthesis and synthetic 2D imaging in the screening and diagnosis of breast cancer and benign breast diseases
• Examine the data on the use of abbreviated breast MRI in the supplemental screening of women at average risk with dense breasts
• Explain the strategies for breast MRI interpretation
• Promote image-guided breast biopsy skills and management of high-risk lesions and lymph nodes in breast cancer

Learning Objectives - Body:
At the conclusion of this CME webinar, respondents will be able to:
• Explain the MR imaging features of pelvic floor disorders, adrenal and pancreatic lesions 
• Employ ultrasound in the evaluation of diffuse thyroid disease and apply the TI-RADS classification to thyroid nodules
• Define specific CT characteristics of acute thoracic pathology and focal pulmonary lesions
• Efficiently use MRI for the evaluation of diffuse liver disease and the LI-RADS reporting system for focal hepatic lesions
• Report specific CT characteristics of colonic lesions and gastrointestinal bleeding and troubleshoot common technical factors limiting optimal image quality
