TECHNOLOGISTS

The American College of Radiology is approved by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) as a Recognized Continuing Education Evaluation Mechanism (RCEEM) to sponsor and/or review Continuing Medical Educational programs for Radiologic Technologists and Radiation Therapists.

The American College of Radiology designates this educational activity as meeting the criteria for up to 34.5 Category A credit hours of the ARRT.

The Postgraduate Course, as well as the Cardiac, Education, Interventional, Neuroradiology and Nuclear Medicine special sessions have been submitted to be qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment (SAM) toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.

 

Course Objectives

The Society for Pediatric Radiology Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course will provide pediatric and general radiologists with an opportunity to do the following:

  1. Summarize the most current information on state-of-the-art pediatric imaging and thepractice of pediatric radiology.
  2. Describe and apply new technologies for pediatric imaging.
  3. Discuss common challenges facing pediatric radiologists, and possible solutions.
  4. Evaluate and apply means of minimizing radiation exposure during diagnostic imaging
    and image-guided therapy.

At the conclusion of the experience, participants should have an improved understanding of the technologies discussed, increasing awareness of the costs and benefits of diagnostic imaging in children and of ways to minimize risks, and an improved general knowledge of pediatric radiology, especially as it interfaces with clinical decision making.
