UCSF Abdomen & Pelvis: CT/MR/US Video + PDF
An Acclaimed Review of Abdominal & Pelvic Imaging
This course guides radiologists in determining indications for the different abdominal and pelvic imaging modalities, as well as indications for secondary imaging studies. This is achieved by providing an updated review of state-of-the-art imaging methods and evidence-based practice in CT, MRI and US as they pertain to the gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems.
Learn how to:
- Apply the ACR recommendations for managing incidental CT-scan findings in the kidney, liver, adrenal gland and pancreas
- Identify indications for the use of different imaging modalities (CT/MRI/US) for various abdominal-pelvic organs and conditions
- Apply practical approaches to diagnosing both benign and malignant diseases of the abdomen and pelvis
- Anticipate potential pitfalls in abdominal-pelvic imaging and interpretation.
