The purpose of the session is to present innovative radiation oncology quality assurance (QA) and safety methodologies that can be applied to each attendee's clinical practice with an emphasis on clinical knowledge. QA processes and interventions focused on patient safety are a part of every radiation oncologist's daily activity. This course will enable participants to examine their own practice's QA processes and patient safety programs to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement.

The purpose of this session is to provide interpretation of different clinical scenarios related to TBI. The automated response system will be used to get feedback from the audience on their interpretation or recommendation for various TBI findings before the scenarios are presented, and then again after the scenarios are presented so that we have a measure of learning outcomes. Residents and fellows may be presenting their cases. Intended audience is non-neuro radiologists and neuroradiology residents and fellows, however neuroradiologists may also benefit. We expect the audience to improve their ability to identify and classify TBI findings after this session. In addition, members of the Head Injury Institute will give a brief overview to the audience on the Head Injury Centers of Excellence (HICOE) and their efforts to standardize reporting and imaging. Developed in conjunction with the ACR Head Injury Institute .

The purpose of this session is to highlight areas of emergency radiology that are undergoing rapid evolution, are new applications, and/or are inherently challenging for most practitioners. Specifically the course will include new and expanded uses of MDCT in ER practice. Areas to be covered include trauma spine imaging with emphasis on new CT classifications, the ever challenging evaluation of complex facial trauma, and the recent improvements in detecting all important arterial hemorrhage. This session will include a review of basic clinical knowledge in its presentation of new and advanced techniques and applications. Attendees need to be aware of these changes to optimize and streamline care of their emergency patients and meet their clinical colleagues' needs and expectations. Developed in conjunction with the American Society of Emergency Radiology.

The purpose of the session is to provide perspectives from non-radiologists as it relates to radiology. The volume to value shift in health care should prompt radiologists to ask the question: what do my customers really want? The best way to answer that question is to ask them. In this session, three leaders with individual expertise in the wants, needs and expectations of patients, referring physicians and hospital executives will answer this important question. A leader in radiology will listen to these viewpoints for the first time and then highlight important takeaways from the session. Developed in conjunction with the Radiology Leadership Institute ®

The purpose of this session is to discuss correlation of results of image guided breast biopsy with imaging findings to determine concordance, including management of high-risk lesions. The emphasis will be on clinical knowledge since radiologists play a key role in determining the adequacy and management of image guided breast biopsy results. Ensuring that the imaging findings are adequately explained is the first and most important step. While the management of atypia is not controversial, management of other high risk lesions obtained on core biopsy may have several options if close radiologic-pathologic correlation is performed.
