About The Meeting
This symposium is designed to provide an update on a variety of new cutting-edge developments in diagnostic imaging and intervention. Topics include new techniques and practical applications of MRI and CT with a primer on artificial intelligence and machine learning. Emphasis of this meeting is on the practical clinical uses of new technologies and their impact on the future of radiology 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 imaging examinations. The content will be beneficial to Neurologists, Emergency Medicine Physicians and General Practitioners who order or integrate imaging information into practice management, as well as radiologist technologists.

Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss new cutting-edge applications of MRI and CT imaging.
  • Compare the utility of MRI and CT in the evaluation of various musculoskeletal, neuro and cardiovascular applications.
  • Discuss the utility of MRI and CT in the workup of spine disease and intervention.
  • Discuss the clinical indications and applications of artificial intelligence and medicine.
  • Discuss the impact of artificial intelligence and machine learning in radiology.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
