May 20, 2015 8:00am ‐ May 20, 2015 9:30am


This session is designed to discuss new and current topics in ultrasound imaging and to present the latest information on common areas of ultrasound practice that can be applied to patient care.  There will be an emphasis on recent studies and literature on evaluation and management of early pregnancy complications and adnexal masses.  Highlights include a discussion of the new terminology for abnormal first trimester pregnancy,  critical findings to distinguish normal from abnormal intrauterine pregnancy and ectopic pregnancy,  current findings associated with adnexal masses and correlation with CT and MRI,  and potential conflicts between studies performed by radiologists and other health care providers.  The focus on point of care ultrasound by nonradiologists will be discussed and strategies for maintaining value and quality will be examined.  New ultrasound technologies including elastography, fusion imaging, 3D imaging and ultrasound contrast will also be discussed.
