Penn Radiology Neuro and Chest Imaging Update
Penn Radiology’s widely acclaimed faculty provides critical pearls, pitfalls and protocols in the areas of neuroradiology, cardiothoracic and breast imaging. Neuro and Chest Imaging Update focuses on practical imaging issues to improve interpretation across a wide range of common and uncommon clinical scenarios. Multi-modality, cutting edge practices will be discussed, highlighting potential misinterpretations and strategies for optimal patient care. Radiologists in clinical practice and in training will benefit from this meticulous analysis of neuroradiology and chest imaging’s latest advances. Worth 18.5 AMA PRA Category I Credits™.

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to: 1. Describe the current advances in radiology for accurate image interpretation of diseases of the brain, neck and chest. 2. Characterize high yield diagnoses throughout neuroradiology, thoracic and breast imaging. 3. Discuss appropriate imaging protocols that optimize diagnostic accuracy and minimize radiation exposure. 4. Describe the role of “supplemental breast screening” in women with dense breast tissue, utilizing “abbreviated breast MRI.” 5. Discuss the use of ultrasound and CT/MR in the evaluation of the thyroid nodules. 6. Explain how to utilize CT in lung cancer screening and evaluation of lung nodules.
