The University of Chicago Diagnostic Radiology Review

Our experts will share their clinical expertise and insight to help you improve your performance and practice. They will guide you to appropriate use of conventional imaging modalities such as plain film radiography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and angiography; and when appropriate, they will emphasize newer important imaging modalities including PET/CT, diffusion weighted MR, cardiac CT, and virtual colonoscopy. Current and future trends in radiology healthcare economics will also be explored.

  • Identify the clinical features of common and less common diseases to create an appropriate differential diagnoses;
  • Discuss how both general and subspecialty radiologic imaging techniques lead to the appropriate differential diagnoses of common and less common diseases;
  • Detail how the newer imaging methods of breast tomosynthesis, diffusion MR tractography, caridac CT/MR, virtual colonoscopy, PET/CT, SPECT/CT, and PET/MR can lead to improved diagnoses;
  • Compare the most effective imaging methods of different disease entities;
  • Analyze the strengths and limitations of different diagnostic imaging procedures;
