CME Activities

Clinical Advances in Imaging
CE Radiologic Technologist Activities
  • How is your imaging practice informing treatment and improving outcomes for patients with breast cancer?
  • How are you identifying patients at increased risk for breast cancer and how are you mitigating that risk?
  • Are you using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in your practice to assess treatment response to neoadjuvant therapy? If not, maybe you should.
  • Did you know that taking too many targeted cores at biopsy can overestimate tumor burden?
  • Do you know that recent guidelines from the American College of Cardiology (ACC)/American Heart Association (AHA) classify cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) as a Class 1 recommendation for evaluating patients with stable chest pain?
  • Can you identify the 3 protocol types used for abbreviated liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)?
  • Can you confidently address your patient's questions about breast cancer screening and supplemental screening guidelines?
  • A full-day meeting for Radiology Administrators and Managers, Radiologic Technologists, Lead Technologists, and Modality Leaders
  • This presentation will consider the role of patient education in improving safety and clinical results and increasing patient satisfaction. A discussion regarding standardized, non-standardized, and online patient education and support materials will be discussed, and in what manner these tools can be used to improve the patient experience.
  • In a busy radiology practice, effective communication is more important than ever and yet there doesn't seem to be enough time to really listen to patients and colleagues. Effective listening is a skill that contributes to relationship building, problem solving, conflict resolution, and imaging accuracy, resulting in fewer errors and less unproductive time. This lecture will explore the skills that are necessary to improve effective communication and the impact of body language and nonverbal signals on effective communication.
  • Everyone expects to enter the healthcare system and be kept safe. However, the delivery of imaging services can result in safety events that can result in harm, disability, and even death. This lecture will review the roles and responsibilities of healthcare workers, management, and industry to improve imaging safety, identifying common strategies used to prioritize patient and staff safety.
  • To deliver the best possible patient care, your team must share common goals and be supported by leadership that excels at communication, is compassionate and consistent, and is committed to providing the best possible patient experience. Layne Mitchell shares his experience in improving staff engagement and patient communication and cooperation.
  • Join Dr Hanneman for a literature review and discussion on assessing cardiac injury seen in some post-COVID-19 patients.
