This live online course will feature three days of talks and interactive presentations, which will facilitate implementation of emerging imaging technologies into pediatric care by bringing updated educational content and imaging protocols to practicing radiologists.



This course will be recorded and converted into an on-demand activity later this year. All registrants for the live online course will also have access to the recordings at no additional cost.
