CE Information

Target Audience

The target audience for this program includes pediatric radiologists, fellows, residents and technologists who perform and report pediatric oncologic imaging. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. To review recommended imaging approaches for diagnosis, staging and followup of pediatric malignancies.
  2. To discuss emerging and cutting edge imaging technologies in pediatric oncology including functional/metabolic modalities, radiomics and radiogenomics. 
  3. Provide a clinicians perspective on the role of imaging in the management of pediatric malignancies, including cancer predisposition syndromes.

At the completion of this course, participants will be able to understand the current role of imaging in pediatric oncology. Participants will also better understand the clinical perspective of oncologic imaging.
