ACR 2015 to Deliver Advanced Clinical Education in Emerging Imaging and Radiation Oncology Techniques

September 19, 2014 — ACR 2015, the all-new annual meeting of the American College of Radiology (ACR), will offer a variety of engaging and interactive clinical education sessions that focus on hot-button topics such as lung cancer screening, breast tomosynthesis and the latest in radiation therapy. Open to ACR members and non-members, ACR 2015 will be held May 17-21, 2015, at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Clinical education sessions at ACR 2015 will include:

  • Lung Cancer Screening: From Science to Practice
  • New Technology: Digital Breast Tomosynthesis and Proper Reporting – The New BI-RADS Lexicon
  • Traumatic Brain Injury Patient: What the Radiologist Needs to Know
  • Imaging of Child Abuse: Responsible Action
  • Therapeutic Gain from Technologic Advances in Radiation Oncology

Attendees also will have the opportunity to experience the ACR Education Center right at the meeting. A walk-in learning lab will feature more than 40 hours of one-on-one mentoring and proprietary, case-based hands-on experiential learning with top radiology experts.

“The clinical education content being offered at ACR 2015 is unique because it will be integrated with practical tools that impact the practice of radiology and quality of patient care, such as ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards. I encourage everyone to register soon and take advantage of this one-of-a-kind learning opportunity,” said Cheri Canon, M.D., chair of the ACR 2015 Program Committee.

Other program features include an exclusive Capitol Hill experience, and more than 100 concurrent sessions and general sessions featuring nationally renowned speakers and a keynote speech delivered by General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.). Attendees can earn continuing medical education (CME) and self-assessment module (SAM) credits for maintenance of certification.
