As health care moves into a new era of increasing information vulnerability, radiologists should understand that their confidential medical data can be stolen, or that they may be using systems that are exposed to altered data or data that contain malicious elements. This webinar will discuss the vulnerabilities of medical (DICOM) images and DICOM servers, discuss requirements to properly secure medical images, and provide recommendations on how to best protect medical images and radiology practices from cyberattacks.

This webinar was designed by a top team of radiologists, cybersecurity experts, and DICOM security leaders, offering a unique combination of expertise in this field. The team includes both the cybersecurity researchers / hackers who have identified recent DICOM vulnerabilities, and the official defenders of the DICOM format, responsible for maintaining its security.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss recent cyber breaches and cyberattacks involving medical images.
  • Articulate the core principles of security as they apply to medical data and medical images.
  • Describe a few concepts of the DICOM standard relevant to security.
  • Explain basic concepts about confidentiality, integrity and availability of medical images, and ways these can prevent cyber breaches and cyberattacks.
  • Recognize the role of major players, including radiologists, in maintaining the security of medical images.

In recent years, there have been substantial advances in pediatric abdominal MR imaging for reducing motion artifacts. However, current radiologists in both private and academic practice settings are not up to date with this important information for patient care and research.

Focusing on practical techniques to improve the daily practice of pediatric abdominal MRI, this AJR Live Webinar has great value in today’s health care environment, which emphasizes imaging techniques not associated with potentially harmful ionizing radiation—particularly in a young patient population.

Learning Outcomes

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss practical techniques that can improve the daily practice of pediatric abdominal MR imaging.
  • Consider the challenges of applying techniques of abdominal MR imaging in the pediatric population.
  • Discuss clinical applications of pediatric abdominal MR imaging.
