MEETING DESCRIPTION:
COURSE DIRECTOR
William G. Bradley, Jr., MD, PhD, FACR
Professor and Chairman, Department of Radiology
University of California, San Diego

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This Course is designed for radiologists interested in learning more about Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It covers MR Physics and image interpretation in all organ systems: Neuro, Body, MSK, Pediatrics, Cardiac and Breast. The Lecture-workshops emphasize key findings, differential diagnosis and optimizing MR techniques at 1.5T and 3T. The course is appropriate for radiologists with very little knowledge of MRI as well as those with considerable experience in MRI. MR safety issues, eg, nephrogenic systemic fibrosis, will also be discussed.

COURSE OBJECTIVES
At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should:
-define the applications of MRI to solving clinical questions in all organ systems
-recognize the specific advantages (and limitations) of the various MR techniques
-develop differential diagnoses based on imaging findings
-identify the advantages and disadvantages of MRI compared to CT and other imaging techniques

NEEDS ASSESSMENT
Dr Bradley began running this course over 25 years ago when MRI was in its infancy. Over the years the course content has been modified, based on the suggestions of previous attendees as well as on new topics being presented at national meetings and in the literature.

TARGET AUDIENCE
This course is intended for radiologists and other imaging physicians as well as senior technologists interested in advancing their knowledge of MRI.

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this educational activity for a maximum of 40 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
