Body MRI: How to Provide Value-Based Care

Categorical Course

Participate in Washington, DC or Online • Sunday, April 22–Tuesday, April 24
The course will provide an intensive multi-day review in body MRI that is designed to provide a clinically focused update on the current optimal performance and interpretation of body MRI across a broad range of real life applications. Nationally recognized experts will incorporate scenario-based examples, cutting-edge reviews, practice tips tailored to daily clinical experience, and more.

Needs Assessment

Subspecialty expertise in body MRI is increasingly important as the technology continues to evolve and as the applications become increasingly focused and challenging. Reports that are clinically focused and personalized to each individual patient in a way that enhances management will increasingly be expected and required as we shift towards value based reimbursement in the emerging healthcare payment reforms.

Target Audience

This course is intended for all general and subspecialty radiologists whose work involves performing or interpreting MRI of the body for gastrointestinal, genitourinary, musculoskeletal, pediatric, obstetric or other indications.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this course, the attendee will be able to:

  • Perform and interpret body MRI at a high level across a range of applications
  • Describe and implement LI-RADS for reporting of liver lesions in patients with cirrhosis
  • Discuss updated concepts in prostate MRI, including PI-RADS and MRI targeted biopsy
  • Discuss the indications for adding MRI to ultrasound in gynecologic disease
