  2. 2. Statement of Need Presenting Faculty & Guests Advances in medical imaging continue to occur quite rapidly, making the clinical practice of radiology extremely demanding. The information presented in this course familiarizes the participant with newly emerging material and provides opportunities to discuss and exchange ideas with the faculty. The program was conceived, developed and structured as a result of the written comments and verbal input from attendees of previous CME meetings and by the need perceived by our faculty. Wendy DeMartini, M.D. Professor of Radiology Breast Imaging Section Chief Department of Radiology University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health Target Audience This educational activity has been designed to meet the needs of radiologists in general diagnostic practice who are determining which radiologic tests to order and how to evaluate and manage their patients. Learning Objectives At the conclusion of this educational activity, learners should be able to: 1. Discuss the workup of neurological emergencies 2. Identify congenital lung abnormalities in children 3. Review radiation exposure risks and methods to decrease radiation exposure 4. Describe controversies of low back pain imaging 5. Explain appropriate utilization of breast MRI Elements of Competence This CME activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge, and patient care and procedural skills. Big Sky, Montana Big Sky is one of the finest ski resorts in the northwest and is an ideal resort for the entire family. Nestled between three major mountain ranges, Big Sky offers 3,800 acres of alpine skiing, 65 miles of groomed cross country ski trails, ice skating, sleigh rides, and numerous fine restaurants. The resort’s tram, high speed quads, chairlifts and gondola can carry 20,000 skiers per hour; this ensures that you will not spend your time in lift lines. Also, 400-inch average snowfalls and extensive snowmaking provide the best possible skiing conditions. Big Sky boasts beginning, intermediate and advanced runs, with Lone Mountain topping off at 11,166 feet. You can ski freestyle through open meadows, master mogul fields and tour down perfectly groomed slopes that keep you wondering if they will ever end. For those who do not ski or would like to improve their skills, Big Sky offers private and group lessons at all ability levels.
