Stay Ahead in Your Field

NYU’s Head to Toe Imaging is extremely thorough and will help you keep up with recent developments and current trends in the field. Led by Georgeann McGuinness, MD, FACR, this online CME program focuses on safety and quality issues, the practical aspects of established CT, MR, US, PET, and interventional techniques, and new techniques and applications for these modalities. It will help you to better:

  • Evaluate and fit current imaging techniques and protocols for sub specialty imaging into clinical practice
  • Explain the Bosniak classification system for small renal masses
  • Develop imaging protocols to optimize radiation safety and dose reduction in CT
  • Utilize MR imaging in apt patient populations without compromising diagnostic accuracy
  • Strategize to optimize and incorporate a gamut of studies, including CT, MR and PET to accurately stage neoplasms

Educational Objectives

After participating in this activity, clinicians should be able to:

  • Evaluate and incorporate current imaging techniques and protocols for sub specialty imaging (Abdominal, Musculoskeletal, Neurologic, Thoracic, Cardiac, Breast, PET/CT, Emergency Medicine, Interventional) into clinical practice to enable accurate diagnosis, dictate best therapy options, and assess response to therapy, which may prompt therapy modification as needed.
  • Describe the Bosniak classification system, and its applicability to watchful waiting/surveillance management algorithms for small renal mass lesions.
  • Describe the recent literature and recommendations for imaging lung nodules and imaging appearances of various subsolid nodules.
  • Develop strategies to optimize and incorporate a gamut of studies, including CT, MR and PET, in order to accurately stage neoplasms with minimal cost and radiation exposure.
  • Develop imaging protocols and techniques to optimize radiation safety and dose reduction in CT, as well as utilize MR imaging in appropriate patient populations, without compromise to diagnostic quality and accuracy of imaging.

Target Audience

The program is designed for clinical radiologists in either general or specialized practice, and is appropriate for radiologists in training. Familiarity with the fundamentals of CT, MR, PET, and US technology and applications, as well as basic anatomy, is assumed.
