The University of Chicago Radiology Review

This conference is a case-based, comprehensive look at new developments and updates. Led by renowned radiologist Daniel E. Appelbaum, MD, it covers a wide array of topics like imaging ischemic stroke, orbits, brain vascular malformations, spine tumors, white matter diseases, pediatric thorax, bone tumors, and more.

In addition to outlining diagnostic tips, techniques and pitfalls, this CME program will help you to better:

  • Identify clinical features of common and uncommon diseases to create a differential diagnosis
  • Integrate evidence-based techniques for performing electrodiagnostic tests into practice
  • Define the role of novel imaging methods in reaching the correct diagnosis
  • Evaluate the most effective imaging methods for different disease entities
  • Appraise the strengths and limitations of diverse diagnostic imaging techniques
  • Describe the impact of emerging technology and the growing healthcare system on the practice of radiology
  • Confront challenging issues in the practice of radiology
This presentation was originally recorded at the 24th Annual Conference: 2019 Radiology Review, April 1-5, 2019, Chicago, IL.
