To Register for the 2017 Crossroads of Radiology or the MSK Categorical Course
The purpose of this session is to explain what are machine and deep learning, their role in radiology research and practice, and how to prepare for them. This session will emphasize how radiologists can approach machine learning and deep learning, separating hype from reality. It will demonstrate how these self-improving algorithms will help radiologists, and the challenges of producing valid and useful computer models. Finally, it will present a roadmap for machine and deep learning in radiology, and ACR's roles as this technology evolves.
Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

The purpose of this session is to demonstrate peer-to-peer interaction and state-of-the art technology from ACR's Mammography Case Review (MCR) program, which offers a blended learning approach, utilizing online case simulation. The MCR program is designed for radiologists to enhance practice competency and improve breast imaging skills. This session provides attendees with the opportunity to interact with select MCR cases individually, with guidance from expert faculty.

The purpose of this session to discuss the epistemic basis of overdiagnosis, make a distinction between overdiagnosis and false positives, explain why overdiagnosis in screening mammography is controversial and discuss prescriptions for overdiagnosis. Overdiagnosis is a controversial subject which tears through a lot of radiology. Whether radiologists like it or not, we are implicated in diagnosis and, therefore, overdiagnosis. However, coverage of this controversy in radiology meetings has been tepid. During this session we will bridge the knowledge gap and overcome the hesitancy.

The purpose of the series of lectures is to provide specific tools to gather quality input data from a radiology practice. Development and implementation of the tools will advance skills to improve practice. Note: The Quality and Safety Program is formatted in five parts to provide attendees interested in quality and safety a comprehensive program that can be used to train and nurture specific individuals to serve their institutions as the Radiology Quality Officer.

The purpose of this session will focus on how cost is defined as the surrendering of resources. The cost of imaging is a value that is unique to the person or entity that is surrendering those resources, be they the patient, the radiologist, the healthcare system, the payer, or society as a whole. The concept of cost is often confused with price or charge values, but there is little relationship between these values and cost. This session will directly investigate the sources of confusion and refine the definitions of cost, price, and charge in radiology. Because cost is a critical element in defining value, the methods by which the aforementioned stakeholders of radiology determine and perceive costs will be explored in relation to the perceived value of radiology. Faculty representing diverse stakeholder domains will provide a rich and at times conflicting perspective on understanding the costs of radiology, framing the challenges of establishing radiology's value to diverse stakeholders. Developed in conjunction with Radiology Leadership Institute.

The purpose of this session is to introduce the vocabulary and acronyms of payment policy. The session will provide information on how to better understand how an imaging study progresses from an order in the medical record to actual reimbursement. Highlights include an introduction to CPT codes, and how these codes get assigned values (RVUs via the RUC and CMS). The session will explore the larger payers and how we to interact with them as radiology group and within hospital departments. In addition, the next frontier of payments models will be explored, such as ACOs, shared risk strategies, and bundled payments.

The purpose of this session is to help radiologists who are employed by, contracted with, or otherwise affiliated with systems planning to implement clinical decision support (CDS) in the near future and ensure that they are able to understand and contribute to the process wherever possible. It includes an in-depth discussion of the legislation, evidence for and against the efficacy of imaging CDS, considerations for selecting a CDS vendor, tips for configuring CDS in a fashion consistent with departmental goals, and pointers for implementation and change management. Recent legislation mandates the documentation of appropriateness criteria consultation when ordering advanced imaging for medicare patients to remain eligible for reimbursement. Implementation of imaging CDS is a solution adopted by many systems to automate compliance with the new requirements.

The purpose of the session is to enable radiologists imaging children to be successful in imaging children, despite challenges posed by motion. The session will highlight strategies for the imaging the moving child, including emphasizing Imaging 3.0 and patient centered care which include radiologists as team leaders. Currently, over half of pediatric studies are performed by 'adult' radiologists with only basic pediatric imaging training. Not only is the pathology often unique, but the acquisition of MR images can be fraught with difficulty due to an uncooperative child or crying infant. Developed in conjunction with Society for Pediatric Radiology.

The purpose of this session is to review the framework of PI-RADS V2 for standardization in image acquisition and analysis, and communication of imaging findings from the multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) of the prostate. Cases illustrating normal anatomy of the prostate, benign prostatic entities, and malignancies ranging from low-grade to clinically significant cancers will be discussed along with challenging cases with false positive and false negative imaging features. The session will also include an update on MRI-targeted biopsy of the prostate.
