Four Seasons Resort
Punta Mita, Nayarit, Mexico

Penn Radiology is going back to the fabulous Four Seasons, Punta Mita, Mexico, for our 14th annual Breast Imaging course. The program is designed for full or part-time breast radiologists and may also be of interest to breast surgeons and breast imaging technologists. In addition to a review of breast imaging fundamentals, which is offered to improve interpretation skills, lectures will include technologies such as digital breast tomosynthesis, screening breast ultrasound, as well as full and abbreviated breast MRI protocols. We will look at the evolving data that support these technologies and consider patient-specific factors that contribute to imaging decisions.

Radiology After Hours: Acute Diagnoses On Evenings And Weekends

March 26, 2019 to March 29, 2019

Atlantis Paradise Island Resort
Nassau, Bahamas

Rapid changes in health care and recent technological advances have steadily increased the demand for real-time imaging interpretation — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. As a result, radiologists in most major health care centers as well as in private practice have been asked to provide after-hours, "final" interpretations. This program will review commonly seen disorders in all the key areas of the body to assist radiologists covering shifts outside their comfort zone. Over four days, faculty will provide participants with practical information to enhance image acquisition and interpretation skills and identify the best modality for a given clinical presentation. Selected topics within neuroradiology, abdominal imaging, musculoskeletal radiology, chest and pediatric radiology will be covered.  Daily case conferences and the opportunity to earn SAM credits are included.
