Overview

Radiology CME: Explore Abdominal and Thoracic Imaging

Designed for both the general and specialized radiologist, UCSF Abdominal and Thoracic Imaging is an online CME course providing an extensive review of clinically relevant topics in chest, abdominal, pelvic, and ob-gyn imaging. Speakers discuss interpretation tips for both routine and emerging applications, artificial intelligence and its implications in clinical practice, and more.

 

You get case-based continuing medical education lectures targeting relevant areas of focus, including:

  • Abdominal — female pelvis, acute pelvic pain in the reproductive age female, early and ectopic pregnancy, male pelvis and prostate, gastrointestinal conditions including the liver, and organ transplants
  • Thoracic — lung cancer screening, pulmonary embolism, mediastinal masses, chest radiographs, and other findings and indications relevant for the general radiologist
