ACR 2016 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2016VM75 - Body MRI Boot Camp - Part III

May 19, 2016 1:30pm ‐ May 19, 2016 3:00pm


The purpose of this session is to provide an abridged version of the intensive practical course on Body and Pelvic MR offered at the ACR Education Center. It will focus on the most common, current, and practical indications for abdominal and pelvic MRI. The goal is to help a range of radiologists, from the general radiology practitioner to the moderately advanced MRI expert. A foundation will be provided to improve scan times, quality, and uniformity, with the objective of building meaningful use evidence-based criteria for decision support algorithms. Body MRI Part III will focus on building your MRI practice and how to manage safety, quality, protocols and oversight; decision support meaningful use, scheduling, and preauthorization; and applications with greatest growth potential, including liver, prostate, gastrointestinal track and anorectal cancer, and urgent care.

Learning Objectives:

  1. List the protocol technical details for acquiring a comprehensive examination with optimized patient progression within a 20-25 minute total room turnaround time.
  2. Understand the methodology for improving overall value and outcomes, producing uniform high quality scans, reducing artefacts, and dealing with breathing and other sources of motion.
  3. Adopt practices to improve personal and group performance and compliance with RADPEER or other similar quality assessment tools.
