Live Stream Meeting
This course will be offered as a virtual conference. Login instructions along with the digital syllabus will be shared with the attendees a week before the meeting. Included in your registration fee is access to the course recordings on demand after the conference and for 30 days after the course. You must tune in to the live conference (in person or remotely) to claim CME.



At the completion of this course, the attendee should be able to:  

  1. Identify imaging fundamentals of each of the radiology sub-specialties (organ systems);
  2. Prescribe the appropriate utilization of imaging modalities (CT, MR, US, Mammography, Nuc Med) for different medical conditions;
  3. Implement the appropriate imaging protocols for routine clinical presentations;
  4. Recognize indications and markers for interventional procedures, as well as assessment of outcomes;
  5. Apply classifications of pathophysiological mechanisms underlying human disease to facilitate differential diagnosis;
  6. Refine imaging criteria to optimize image quality/findings and improve diagnostic interpretation.


In support of improving patient care, the University of California, San Francisco is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

UCSF designates this live activity for a maximum of 36.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This CME activity meets the requirements under California Assembly Bill 1195, continuing education and cultural and linguistic competency.


Course Outline

This course will review the fundamentals of the major organ systems and corresponding imaging modalities (CT/ MR/ US/ X-rays).

The course will consist of case-based, in-depth sessions on diseases of the major organ systems; and shorter focused lectures on physics, rad safety, cardiac, nuclear medicine and interventional procedures that are relevant to the general radiologist and radiologist-in-training.

The course will include a 90-minute session of multiple-choice questions on the Non-Interpretive Skills relevant to radiology trainees.

To facilitate learning, all lectures will include rapid-fire cases and/or multiple choice questions (MCQ), as well as “MCQ Galore” sessions that emphasize basic radiology principles in a fast-paced, question format that will be of clinical value to the radiologist on-call and in-training.
