University of Wisconsin Practical Imaging and Intervention 2019

Albert, SK CA
July 10, 2019 to July 13, 2019

Statement of Need

Rapid technological advances make the world of Radiology an ever-changing environment.  To keep up with the most effective imaging choices for the most comprehensive patient care, it is imperative that discussion of and education on the latest advances in imaging techniques remains at the forefront in the minds of our radiologists. The Planning Committee has determined a strong need for this conference because of the progressive content nature, requests from past attendees, and evaluation summaries from previous years.

    Intended Audience

    This course has been designed to give practicing radiologists a review and update of current concepts in diagnostic and interventional radiology while also exploring the future of imaging and Radiology.  In addition, the course brings a referrer’s perspective so that the Radiologist better understands the impacts on their patients.

    Elements of Competence

    This CME activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of medical Specialties areas of patient care and procedural skills, and medical knowledge.

    Objective and Scope

    The main focus of the meeting this year will be on Interventional Radiology, Musculoskeletal Radiology, advanced imaging techniques and therapeutics, and nonclinical issues such as artificial intelligence.

    Familiarity with the above topics will be increased through attendance at scheduled lectures and participation in informal small group discussions with faculty and other participants throughout the course.  Attendance is limited to 32 registrants including faculty, so registrants can spend time in small group discussions.  Educational videotapes will be available for viewing at any time.


    Learning Objectives

    At the conclusion of this educational activity, the learner should be able to:

    • Explain the diagnosis, treatment and practical applications of imaging from the practical to the cutting edge with a focus on Musculoskeletal Imaging, Abdominal Imaging and Pediatric Imaging.
    • Recognize the implications of the evolving and improving diagnostic and therapeutic techniques for oncologic conditions and how that might affect clinical practice.
    • Recognize the importance of nonclinical issues like leadership, artificial intelligence and value based decision making on the clinical practice of radiology.
