ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM17 - Hot Topics in Ultrasound

May 16, 2016 10:00am ‐ May 16, 2016 12:00pm


The purpose of the session is to review the most relevant technological advances in ultrasound and inform registrants how to practically introduce and integrate these new technologies into their practice, thereby expanding services and improving accuracy of diagnosis and patient care. Ultrasound has entered a renaissance phase in part due to new applications related to advances in ultrasound technology. These advances in technology may not be easily understood or immediately accessible to all practices. The technologies to be discussed include the use of elastography and three-dimensional imaging. In addition, this course will give an update to carotid imaging, one of the most common ultrasound procedures performed. This will be an interactive presentation with two nationally recognized speakers featuring interesting cases and solutions to common diagnostic issues. Developed in conjunction with the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Apply the use of elastography in their ultrasound practice, in particular, the role of elastography in managing the patient with cirrhosis as well as focal lesions in the breast and prostate.
  2. Recognize how to perform three-dimensional ultrasound to improve diagnostic capabilities of gynecologic and obstetrical ultrasound.
  3. Explain the current diagnostic criteria to optimize carotid Doppler interpretation.
