6th annual St. Michael's MRI Symposium

 

Saturday September 14, 2019, 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute
209 Victoria St., Toronto

Again this year, this CME event focuses on important current topics in Body (abdominal and pelvic) MRI targets practicing radiologists, technologists and trainees, including residents and fellows.

The perceived learning needs used to plan this event have been identified via requests from radiology residents, radiology fellows, radiologists and technologists from the University of Toronto, St. Michael’s Hospital, and across the province of Ontario with whom the members of the planning committee have contact, including members of the audiences who participated in the first five St. Michael’s MRI symposia.

This year’s symposium features faculty radiologists from across Canada, with a theme of providing new updates and expert tips in important areas of Body MRI. This year’s symposium is being held in partnership with the Canadian Association of Radiologists, and will again be delivered both live in Toronto and webcast across the country.

At the end of this event, participants will be able to:

  1. Apply current Canadian guidelines and important considerations in gadolinium-based contrast agent safety, including nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and tissue deposition.
  2. Describe and apply brand new technical, terminology and reporting standards released in the past year for both: a) MR enterography and b) prostate MRI.
  3. Explain the importance of modern quantitative liver MRI techniques for diffuse liver disease encompassing liver fat, iron and fibrosis and their impact on clinical management.
  4. Identify clinically relevant and modern techniques and applications of MR angiography as they apply to abdominal and pelvis imaging.

Thank you for joining us.
