Canon Medical Hosting Expert CME Forums on Innovation at RSNA 2018

Third annual CME symposia will focus on high-resolution imaging, novel techniques for liver assessment

November 13, 2018 — Canon Medical Systems USA and Applied Radiology will host a pair of expert-led forums in high-resolution imaging and liver assessment at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.

The two symposia offer attendees insights and cost-free CME credits through an unrestricted educational grant to the accredited CME provider, Institute for Advanced Medical Education, in the following areas:

  • Innovation in High Resolution Imaging
    • When: Monday, Nov. 26, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
    • Where: McCormick Place Convention Center, room S101 AB
    • Speakers: Vincent Dousset, M.D., Ph.D., Medical News Imaging, University of Bordeaux; Mathias Prokop, M.D., Radboud University
  • Novel Techniques for Liver Assessment
    • When: Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.
    • Where: McCormick Place Convention Center, room S101 AB
    • Speakers: Nami Azar, M.D., University Hospitals Cleveland; Andrew Trout, D.O., Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center; Bela Kis, M.D., Moffitt Cancer Center

In addition to the expert forums, Canon Medical is showcasing new products and features at this year’s RSNA annual meeting.

A 3-D ultrasound system provides an effective, noninvasive way to estimate blood flow that retains its accuracy across different equipment, operators and facilities, according to a study published in the journal Radiology.

Volume flow as a function of color flow gain (at a single testing site). For each row the color flow c-plane and the computed volume flow are shown as a function of color flow gain. The c-plane is shown for four representative gain levels, whereas the computed volume flow is shown for 12–17 steps across the available gain settings. Flow was computed with (solid circles on the graphs) and without (hollow circles on the graphs) partial volume correction. Partial volume correction accounts for pixels that are only partially inside the lumen. Therefore, high gain (ie, blooming) does not result in overestimation of flow. Systems 1 and 2 converge to true flow after the lumen is filled with color pixel. System 3 is nearly constant regarding gain and underestimates the flow by approximately 17%. Shown are mean flow estimated from 20 volumes, and the error bars show standard deviation. Image courtesy of the journal Radiology
