About the Meeting
The 38th Annual Radiology Review Course will cover a wide range of topics common to most current diagnostic radiology practices. It is organized in focus sessions, by organ system, in all subspecialty areas of Diagnostic Radiology. Some sessions will include discussion on related image guided interventions and medical imaging physics. In addition, to regular Continuing Medical Education (CME) sessions, specific sessions of the meeting program will be submitted for SAM qualification to help satisfy participants’ SAM requirements for board recertification.

Statement of Need
Feedback on questionnaires from prior symposia has indicated a need for radiology courses that offer a broad curriculum emphasizing common pathologies and differential diagnosis. In addition, requirements for maintenance of certification by the American Board of Radiology mandate that radiologists participate in continuing medical education and take a certification exam every 10 years.
About The Meeting
The 38th Annual Radiology Review Course will cover a wide range of topics common to most current diagnostic radiology practices. It is organized in focus sessions, by organ system, in all subspecialty areas of Diagnostic Radiology. Some sessions will include discussion on related image guided interventions and medical imaging physics. In addition, to regular Continuing Medical Education (CME) sessions, specific sessions of the meeting program will be submitted for SAM qualification to help satisfy participants’ SAM requirements for board recertification
Target Audience
The course is designed as a comprehensive review of the field of Diagnostic Radiology with supplemental medical physics for both practicing radiologists as well as radiologists-in-training preparing for the Core Exam of the American Board of Radiology.
Educational Objectives
Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Discuss the differential diagnosis of the imaging appearance of common disease processes with appropriate imaging and clinical follow-up recommendations.
  • Describe the role of new imaging techniques in diagnostic radiology.
  • Discuss basic vascular and non-vascular interventional procedures.
  • Explain medical radiation safety, the physics of and mechanisms to obtain medical images, and common imaging artifacts, and select non-interpretive skills.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
Registration Information
Tuition includes all course materials, including a comprehensive course syllabus, daily continental breakfasts and coffee breaks. Early registration is strongly suggested. There will be a $100 surcharge for anyone registering after March 22, 2018. Minimum and maximum attendance levels have been established for this meeting. If your registration cannot be accepted, you will be issued a full tuition refund.

Cancellations must be received in writing. A $50 processing fee will be applied to all cancellations. Refunds requested in writing prior to March 2, 2018 will be issued for the amount of tuition paid less the $50 processing fee. No refunds will be made on or after that date.

Cultural and Linguistic Competency
This activity is in compliance with California Assembly Bill 1195 which requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. Cultural competency is defined as a set of integrated attitudes, knowledge, and skills that enables health care professionals or organizations to care effectively for patients from diverse cultures, groups, and communities. Linguistic competency is defined as the ability of a physician or surgeon to provide patients who do not speak English or who have limited ability to speak English, direct communication in the patient's primary language. Cultural and linguistic competency was incorporated into the planning of this activity. Additional resources on cultural and linguistic competency and information about AB1195 can be found on the UCSD CME website at http://cme.ucsd.edu.
