This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of the American College of Radiology and Society for Pediatric Radiology. The American College of Radiology is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The American College of Radiology designates this activity for a maximum of 37.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
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 37.75 Category A credit hours of the ARRT.
Select sessions from this activity meet the American Board of Radiology criteria for a self-assessment (SAM) activity and are designated SAM credits toward the ABR Maintenance of Certification program. The total SAM credit amount is pending.
The Society for Pediatric Radiology Annual Meeting & 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 the practice of pediatric radiology.
2) Describe and apply new technologies for pediatric imaging.
3) Describe and apply basic principles for implementing quality and safety programs in pediatric radiology
4) Discuss trends in research concerning the care and imaging of pediatric patients
5) Identify common challenges facing pediatric radiologists, and possible solutions.
6) Evaluate and apply means of managing radiation exposure and the need for sedation/anesthesia during diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapy.
At the conclusion of the experience, participants should have an improved understanding of the technologies discussed, the benefits of medical imaging, increasing awareness of the risks of imaging, including radiation, to children and of ways to minimize these risks, and an understanding of evolving technologies, techniques and applications of imaging evaluation in children.
