This course is designed to change physician competence in practice and
in patient outcomes. The UC Davis Department of Radiology is pleased
to offer this diagnostic radiology course featuring a broad range of topics
relevant for the radiologist and radiology technologist. Emphasis will
be on newer MRI and CT imaging techniques in different anatomical
regions of the body. As a result of course participant evaluations and
community physician annual needs assessment surveys, the need for
cutting edge information about relevant topics in diagnostic imaging has
been identified. This course is knowledge based and is designed to assess
the uses of imaging modalities that are applicable to the clinical practice
of the target audience. Presentations are designed to change physician
performance and will emphasize new modalities and techniques in the
areas of MRI, CT, PET, CTA, MDCT, and HRCT. This year’s 4-day course
will specifically address these identified educational needs and provide
practitioners with state-of-the-art tools. This conference will assist those
who image multiple areas of the body and need to remain current in
various technological advances to provide improved treatment options
for their patients. Faculty presenting and interacting with participants
at this activity have been selected on the basis of their comprehensive
clinical experience and academic excellence.

At the end of the program, participants should be able to:
• Review imaging of atypical clinical masses
• Evaluate imaging features of common pediatric sports injuries
• Interpret common findings on HRCT of the lung and their
• Discuss the role of MRI in evaluating CNS abnormalities
• Utilize new imaging modalities in the detection of breast disease
• Recognize pitfalls in CT/MRI of abdominal abnormalities
• Discuss the use of MRI in evaluating bones and joints
• Define the application of advanced techniques in breast imaging to
current clinical practice
