This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 12 credits. Course Description: Global Medical Device Regulations continue to evolve, as devices become more diverse and sophisticated. Understanding the regulations and requirements in your targeted markets will expedite speed-to-market of innovative products and assist patients needing access to life-saving products and technologies. Government Regulatory Authorities, needing to become more efficient with their time, are looking for ways to better use their internal resources without compromising safety in products, which become marketable. One such example is the Medical Device Single Audit Program [MDSAP], where Authorized Organizations would be allowed to carry out a single GMP audit on medical device manufacturing facilities and have it stand to support registrations across the current participating member countries: U.S. Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan. This two-day seminar is focused on understanding the Medical Device Single Audit Program, the scope of the program, how to apply, the Authorized Organizations, the rating system developed and what you can expect when signing onto the program. The seminar will discuss how such audits are organized, what to expect during a MDSAP audit, how does this differ from a typical certified body audit, along with document movement and timeline expectations in receiving the facility’s certificate. The key Regulatory Requirements for Medical Devices will also be covered for the participating MDSAP Countries of: U.S., Canada, Brazil, Australia and Japan. This seminar will be particularly useful for those involved in research and development, document creation for regulatory submission, data handling and for those conducting/monitoring/coordinating clinical investigation, performing risk management and post-market vigilance/surveillance. This seminar is a must for those who are looking to apply for a medical device registration and product license in a MDSAP country. Course Objectives: • The Medical Device Single Audit Program (MDSAP) • Device Classification • Licensing Pathways • Medical Device GMP • Inspections • Device Labeling • License Holder Responsibilities • Timelines and Fees • Country Specific Cultural Considerations and Challenges • Adverse Event Reporting

It describes the appearance of a normal spine, vertebral fractures and other findings that may be confused with fractures. Detailed instruction is given regarding fracture recognition and methods used for their definition and classification. Patient positioning, image acquisition, and analysis, which are helpful in optimizing the visualization of vertebral fractures, are also described. The course includes case-based interactions which help the attendees learn to recognize, classify and report vertebral fractures. Conference Objectives are : • Assess the quality of an imaging examination and understand when to use complementary technologies. • Utilize vertebral imaging as indicated in the 2013 Official Positions of the ISCD to optimize clinical management decisions for patients with osteoporosis. • Recognize, define and report vertebral fractures detected on spine imaging and incorporate this information in diagnosing and treating osteoporosis. • Compare and contrast the appearance of normal and fractured vertebrae as well as non-fracture abnormalities on spine imaging. • Improve recognition and grading of vertebral fractures on VFA while recognizing normal vertebral variants and confounding factors that can make vertebral fracture recognition more challenging.
