Course Objectives
At the end of the conference, participants should be able to:

Identify the most useful ways to optimize workflow in the DI clinic or hospital department, including workload sharing strategies, structured reporting, and enhanced radiologist/clinician communication.
Develop strategies to optimally manage increasingly large data sets, particularly in CT, as now prevalent in DI.
Integrate the diverse strategies needed by radiologists and technologists to operate a quality-oriented coronary CT angiography program, including patient selection, radiation dose minimization, acquisition and interpretation and management of extra-coronary findings.
Identify the most important imaging findings in common brain and spinal cord tumours and their mimics.
Compare the solutions offered by a variety of PACS vendors, to the most pressing problems faced by radiologists in data management.
Explain the most important elements of second trimester pre-natal ultrasound fetal assessment, as well as describe anomalies seen with ultrasound and MRI in the first and second trimesters.
Establish criteria for ultrasound, mammography, and MRI evaluation of the breast, and select appropriate patients for biopsy.
List the body imaging findings in common pulmonary, abdominal, musculoskeletal, breast, neurologic disorders, in an interactive case-based setting.
Demonstrate the ongoing role of the well-performed plain radiograph in evaluation of paediatric, abdominal, spine, and chest disorders.
Respond rapidly and adequately to emergency cardiac, respiratory or anaphylactic situations in a diagnostic imaging or interventional radiology setting (ACLS).
Coronary CT Angiography Simulation Workshops
Participants of the Canadian Association of Radiologists 73rd Annual Scientific Meeting are offered an opportunity to take part in exciting Coronary CT Angiography (CCTA) Simulation Workshops. The CCTA Simulation Workshops will take place in the afternoon of Friday, April 23rd, following a morning CCTA didactic lectures. The workshops are intended as an introductory experience to the science and technology of CCTA.

Concurrent workshops will be held in four different rooms, each equipped with a number of workstations by a single vendor. A maximum of two participants will be assigned per workstation. Registrants will be divided into groups, rotating through each of the rooms and viewing cases with the CCTA experts and applications specialists. The instructor in each room will be a Radiologist with CCTA expertise. Applications specialists will be available to assist with software and system functions.

Participants are to enrol for these workshops upon registering for the Annual Scientific Meeting and will pay a separate fee of $100 (these funds will be directed to the Canadian Radiological Foundation and an official tax receipts will be issued).
