Statement of Need

As is commendable by the ACCME criteria, CME is integrated into the process for improving professional practice with educational strategies implemented to remove, overcome or address barriers to physician change. Physicians are unable to consistently integrate new information into their practices because of the ways new medical knowledge is structured and disseminated, and the time it takes to completely scan for new information. Practical Reviews selects and translates peer-reviewed literature for practical use, therefore diminishing the barrier of time.

Intended Audience

Radiologists and others interested in imaging and diagnostic radiology.
