  2. 2. CONFERENCE OB J ECTIVES Course Description and Objectives The Abdominal Radiology Course has a new name! The annual meeting of the Society of Abdominal Radiology will now be called the SAR 2014 Annual Scientific Meeting and Educational Course. This annual meeting represents the Society’s major educational endeavor, which brings together outstanding educators for a program highlighting: • Use of new and emerging technologies in the imaging diagnosis of abdominal and pelvic pathology • Problem solving for common issues in abdominal and pelvic imaging with practical solutions • Extensive small group workshop presentations allowing registrants to individualize the educational content This year, the educational course will be presented in conjunction with the European Society of Urogenital Radiology. The course format utilizes didactic lectures, general interest presentations, panel discussions, technical displays and interactive workshops in a mix that optimizes the educational opportunities for registrants. The Scientific Paper Sessions of the Society will be open to all members. Numerous educational and scientific posters spanning all aspects of abdominal imaging will be available to all course participants for study throughout the meeting. Designed primarily for radiologists in practice and in training, this course will also benefit all physicians who care for patients with gastrointestinal and genitourinary disease. At the conclusion of the course, registrants should be able to: 1. Apply the most up-to-date and practical information for imaging diagnosis and intervention in common abdominal problems 2. Appropriately implement new and emerging techniques in abdominal CT, MR, US and PET 3. Successfully manage common problems encountered in performing everyday abdominal examinations 4. Understand the newest topics and results in clinical research in abdominal radiology CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of The Society of Abdominal Radiology and The European Society of Urogenital Radiology.

  4. 4. Program Information SEPARATE FOCUSED COURSE TO MEET EDUCATIONAL NEEDS IN DUAL ENERGY Tuesday, March 25 CT The Dual Energy CT Hands-on Workshop will provide registrants a dedicated lecture series and hands-on training on vendor specific workstations highlighting Dual Energy CT capabilities. Six 35-minute lectures will feature single and dual source Dual Energy CT workflow and applications to abdominal imaging. In separate sessions, registrants will receive hands-on supervised instruction on the post-processing techniques needed to utilize the imaging data for enhanced Dual Energy CT diagnosis. Registrants will have up to three hours to work through cases. Those interested in evaluating Dual Energy workflow will have the opportunity to work with multiple vendors. A certificate of attendance will be awarded upon completion.* This workshop would not be possible without the support of GE Healthcare and Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. SEPARATE FOCUSED COURSE TO MEET EDUCATIONAL NEEDS IN SMALL BOWEL Tuesday, March 25 IMAGING The Advanced Small Bowel Imaging Hands-on Workshop is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of CT and MR techniques for the evaluation of small bowel disorders. World leaders in small bowel imaging will present the clinical rationale for and benefits of imaging, exam techniques and CT/MR imaging findings for a variety of small bowel disorders. This workshop will be highlighted by interactive experiences using the participants’ own laptop computer. This training will begin with a targeted workshop track of six introductory lectures. In a separate afternoon session, registrants will receive 4.25 hours of hands-on review of case material with Q A of cases and dedicated time for the participants to ask the panel of experts questions on technique and interpretation. Cases will also be available for independent review for the remainder of the week using a personal laptop or tablet. A certificate of attendance will be awarded upon completion. All participants of this course must bring a laptop with internet capabilities to participate. Complimentary internet access will be provided.* This workshop would not be possible without the support of Calgary Scientific and Bracco Diagnostics, Inc. *Please note that there is an additional registration fee for the hands-on workshops listed above and participation is limited. You must be an SAR meeting registrant to register for either training. Workshop Information Workshop sessions will be offered Tuesday and Thursday in a small group format. The program offers 195 workshops covering a broad range of abdominal and pelvic imaging topics. Continued this year is an Essentials Workshop Track: GI Topic – Luminal GI Tract and GU Topic – Urinary Imaging. The goal of this track is to give the participant a comprehensive overview appropriate for maintenance of certification in GI and GU. Between the 2013 and 2014 meetings, 13 GI and 13 GU topics will be covered. For those interested in Ultrasound Continuing Medical Education, there are 11 workshops on Ultrasound topics offering up to 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. There are also six workshops on Dual Energy CT topics and six workshops on Small Bowel Imaging topics offering a total of up to 3.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for each of these topic areas. These special workshop tracks are identified by a coding system detailed within the brochure program in order to simplify your workshop selection process. SELF-ASSESSMENT MODULE INFORMATION The Self-Assessment Modules (SAM) presented in this activity on Imaging of the Acute Abdomen in Pregnancy, Hepatobiliary MR Contrast, Pancreas Update: Emphasis on MRI, Renal Tumor Imaging, Biopsy, and Therapy, and Oncologic Imaging have been qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.
