Advances in Diagnostic Radiology is a postgraduate course designed to update the diagnostic radiologist in new trends, relevant techniques, and advanced applications in diagnostic imaging. The latest advances will be emphasized and related to common problems encountered in clinical practice. A variety of didactic lectures and accessible faculty members will enhance learning throughout the week. Interesting cases from Mayo Clinic files will be presented in an unknown case format, and the participant will have access to these cases and answers upon completion of the course. All faculty members are in practice at Mayo Clinic and will draw from personal research activities as well as clinical experience at Mayo Clinic. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in four (4) self-assessment modules (SAMs) during the Advances course. The Advanced Radiology Life Support (ARLS) course is designed to focus on the unique, life-threatening emergencies that occur within a radiology department. It is designed to teach prompt recognition and treatment of contrast reactions and will discuss management of the sedated patient and the proper management of an airway in an emergency situation. The administration of contrast in patients with renal insufficiency including contrast induced nephropathy and nephrogenic systemic fibrosis will be discussed. Basic concepts of advanced life support will also be reviewed. This course is fashioned after the Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) course that has been successfully teaching physicians, nurses and allied health personnel patient management during cardiac arrest. Attendees will have an opportunity to participate in two (2) self-assessment modules (SAMs) during the ARLS course. MORE INFORMATION COMING SOON!
