Pituitary tumors are more common than generally thought,

with a prevalence of about 10% on MR imaging in the general

population. At the same time, many endocrinologists and

internists may not have sufficient exposure to deal confidently

with a variety of pituitary disorders. If not properly treated,

pituitary disorders may result in significant morbidity and

lower life expectancy. This one-day program will place a heavy

emphasis on case discussions to review the best strategies

for evaluation and management of pituitary disorders by some

of the finest experts in this field. The speakers will share their

experience from interesting and/or challenging cases that

they have faced. There will be ample time for discussion and
