About The Meeting
This symposium offers a practical teaching course for those who order, perform or interpret magnetic resonance imaging studies. The program is organized in such a way to allow registrants to attend all or just a portion of the meeting. Three focused segments provide a comprehensive yet practical review and update on the clinical applications of MRI. The meeting begins by focusing on the head and spine, moves into the musculoskeletal system and concludes with cardiovascular and body applications. New this year is a focused session on Artificial Intelligence and Cultural Change in Diagnostic Imaging. This special session is designed to help you improve your practice and the overall patient experience.

About The Meeting
This symposium offers a practical teaching course for those who order, perform or interpret magnetic resonance imaging studies. The program is organized in such a way to allow registrants to attend all or just a portion of the meeting. Three focused segments provide a comprehensive yet practical review and update on the clinical applications of MRI. The meeting begins by focusing on the head and spine, moves into the musculoskeletal system and concludes with cardiovascular and body applications. New this year is a focused session on Artificial Intelligence and Cultural Change in Diagnostic Imaging. This special session is designed to help you improve your practice and the overall patient experience.

Target Audience
This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who supervise and interpret MRI/MRA studies. It should also be useful for referring physicians who order these studies so that they might gain a greater appreciation of the strengths and limitations of clinically relevant MRI exams. Technologists performing these types of imaging exams should also gain benefit from this symposium.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss the expanding role of MR in medical imaging.
  • Implement state-of-the-art MR protocols.
  • Utilize MRI to evaluate neurological, musculoskeletal, body and breast pathology.
  • Optimize MR protocols and techniques.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.

Course Organization
This program is planned and organized by Educational Symposia, a leader in continuing medical education since 1975.

Acknowledgement
Educational Symposia appreciates our corporate supporters and exhibitors. A list of industry supporters will be provided and acknowledged at the meeting.
