Full-Day Liver Symposium on Friday, Dec. 2

Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2016

A full-day session, "Novel Concepts in Hepatobiliary Tumor Imaging Symposium" (SPHT61) focused on liver imaging will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday, Dec. 2.

Sessions include:

  • How to Screen and Diagnose HCC: American, Asian, and European Guidelines; Why are They Different and What are the Consequences?
  • Hepatic Dynamic CT with Iterative Reconstruction
  • Abbreviated MRI for HCC Screening and Surveillance: An Accurate Alternative to US
  • Imaging-based Management Guidelines for HCC

The symposium is a joint effort of RSNA and four of the world's leading abdominal imaging societies—the French Society of Abdominal Imaging, the Society of Abdominal Radiology, the Japanese Society of Abdominal Radiology and the Korean Society of Abdominal Radiology.

Question of the Day:

I want to buy a new mammography unit, but it has a tungsten target. Don't I need the characteristic x-rays from Molybdenum to have the optimal energy range for breast imaging?

Tip of the day:

Dose alerts are set for equipment as a complete unit. This means it may help prevent overdosing a patient, but it also means that the alert may kick in during a high-dose procedure like CT-fluoroscopy and interrupt imaging. Always make sure someone in the room has the password to override when performing high dose procedures on dose alert enabled equipment.
