About The Meeting
This symposium provides a cutting-edge approach to the clinical applications of MRI and CT with a primer in machine learning and artificial intelligence technology. A wide range of topics review basic to advanced clinical applications as well as integrating new innovative technologies into your clinical practice. Faculty share tips and techniques used to overcome challenges associated when adapting newer technologies into clinical practice. Lectures with integrated workstation case reviews demonstrate modern image display and basic post processing applications. Emphasis of this meeting is on the practical and clinical uses of newer technologies and adapting them into your clinical practice. Faculty members have been selected for their teaching ability, as well as their expertise.

Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who perform and interpret MRI and CT examinations. It should also be useful in educating referring physicians who order MRI and CT procedures, as well as radiologic technologists

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Optimize MR and CT imaging protocols.
  • Differentiate normal from abnormal MR and CT findings of a variety of disorders.
  • More accurately assess neurological disorders using MR and CT.
  • Explain the clinical indications and applications of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Discuss how innovative technologies are changing and improving the quality of healthcare.
