This is a weekly interesting case conference and didactic lecture series primarily presented by MCW body imaging fellows and faculty radiologists. A wide range of basic and advanced body imaging topics are presented, with each conference devoted to evaluating and applying principles of critical thinking and problem-solving in challenging and practical cases in body imaging or to an in-depth review of the imaging of a specific disease process. Invited MCW clinical colleagues also present on their areas of expertise and the role of body imaging in their practice, often leading to a multidisciplinary discussion of ways to improve imaging to meet current clinical needs.
Key Words: body imaging, imaging technology, practice improvement
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:
- Apply critical thinking and problem solving skills to the evaluation of challenging and practical cases in practice
