Enhance Interpetation Skills

The goal of the UCSF Abdomen & Pelvis: CT/MR/US CME program is to enhance intepretation of body imaging skills and improve clinical practice. This is achieved through a review of state-of-the-art imaging methods and evidence-based practice in CT, MRI and Ultrasound as they pertain to gastrointestinal, genitourinary and gynecologic systems.

Learn how to:

  • Apply the ACR recommendations for managing incidental CT-scan findings in the kidney, liver, adrenal gland and pancreas
  • Identify indications for the use of different imaging modalities (CT/MRI/US) for various abdomino-pelvic organs and conditions
  • Apply practical approaches to diagnosing both benign and malignant diseases of the abdomen and pelvis
  • Anticipate potential pitfalls in abdominal-pelvic imaging and interpretation

Discover New Guidelines

A comprehensive clinical update, this learn-at-your-own-pace course in radiology provides up to 11.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Available online, it provides access to unbiased, evidence-based content and case-based reviews so you can expand your knowledge and incorporate the latest guidelines into your daily practice.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, you should be able to:

  • Discuss management of incidental findings
  • Identify indications for the use of different imaging modalities (CT/MRI/US) for various abdomino-pelvic organs and conditions
  • Apply practical approaches to diagnosing both benign and malignant diseases of the abdomen and pelvis
