ACR 2017 The Crossroads of Radiology

ACR2017VM27 - Imaging That Informs Treatment Decision Making That Enables Improvement in Clinical Outcomes

May 22, 2017 3:30pm ‐ May 22, 2017 5:00pm


The purpose of this session is to focus on recent large scale commonly randomized trial data that has documented scenarios where imaging has been shown to help inform clinical decision making that reduced hard clinical events. For too long the focus of medical imaging has been the detection of disease based on traditional markers of sensitivity and accuracy. Unfortunately, this has been rarely linked to clinical outcomes. Developed in conjunction with Canadian Association of Radiologists.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review recent largescale randomized trials that have documented the clinical utility of coronary CT Angiography.
  2. Discuss the role of imaging in the modern management of acute stroke and how it is enabling improved clinical outcomes.
  3. Describe recent randomized therapeutic treatment trials in interstitial lung disease and how these data have changed the importance of morphological classification on CT.
