Event Description

Incidental findings on cross-sectional imaging are very common and may be beneficial to patients (as with discovery of an asymptomatic renal carcinoma or abdominal aortic aneurysm). More often, however, the effects may be negative. Patients may experience anxiety, excessive additional testing or treatment, and enormous economic impact.

 Radiologists and referring physicians need guidance and reassurance. They need to know that the recommendations for management of incidental findings are based on sound scientific and clinical judgment and will not subject them to medicolegal jeopardy.

 

Dr. Michael Federle, conference chair, has assembled an expert faculty, including members of the ACR Incidental

Findings Committee which has recently published its findings and recommendations. This symposium will address all of the most common and contentious incidentalomas encountered during interpretation of thoraco-abdominal CT and MR.
