* Renal Artery Duplex Expanding The Envelope
Released: February 01, 2017 Expires: January 31, 2019 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $30.00
Faculty: Patrick A. Washko, BSRT, RDMS, RVT, FSVU

In today’s healthcare environment, working in a vascular laboratory is extremely demanding, requiring a multitude of critical skills and abilities from today’s sonographer. The renal artery duplex examination is often viewed as the single most difficult examination performed. This lecture will cover a detailed description of the examination from patient preparation, to stenosis criteria and a broad array of tips and tricks in both a variety of normal and pathological settings. Sonography is very dependent on strong visual and motor skills along with critical thinking abilities.

This presentation is designed to help the sonographer and physician formulate a plan to deal with difficult clinical presentations:

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this webinar one should be able to:

  • Understand the common indications for performing the renal artery duplex examination.
  • Note the importance of knobology and image optimization while insonating the renal arterial and venous system.
  • Identify the importance of direct and indirect renal artery assessment.
  • Discuss how to obtain a clinically diagnostic renal artery duplex examination.

This is a Pay-To-View program. Purchase is required for program access and credit.

Advanced Techniques in Visualization of Microvascularization
Released: April 22, 2016 Expires: April 21, 2018 CE credits: 1.0 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Sally O'Hara, MD, FAAP, Patrick A. Washko, BSRT, RDMS, RVT, FSVU

In recent years the capabilities of ultrasound flow imaging have increased enormously. With such versatility, clinicians are now using this non-invasive technique for additional diagnostic applications.

However, despite continued advances in the technology, it remains vital that clinicians understand both the capabilities and limitations of Doppler ultrasound.

This Expert Forum reviews these principles and discusses current advances that are adding additional clinical value in both the pediatric population and vascular labs.

Following completion of this program, audience members will be able to:

  • Describe the differences between conventional Color Doppler, power Doppler and the new SMI (Superb Microvascular Imaging) technology.
  • Identify improvements to imaging capability between conventional Color Doppler, power Doppler and SMI.
  • Apply SMI to problem solving for pediatric and vascular imaging cases.

This program was originally broadcast live as part of a Webinar sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Medical Education (IAME) and supported through an unrestricted educational grant from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: Part 1:
Where We Are and Where We Are Going with 2015 Update
Released: October 01, 2015 Expires: October 01, 2017 CE credits: 1.5 Cost: $30.00
Faculty: Melissa A. Durand, Liane E. Philpotts
16048

In this first installment of a two-part series, Dr. Liane Philpotts, Professor of Diagnostic Radiology and Chief of Breast Imaging, and Dr. Melissa Durand, Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Radiology, both from the Yale School of Medicine, will share their experiences working with digital breast tomosynthesis in a clinical setting.

Part I will discuss the following:

  • The impact on recall rates and cancer detection of using breast tomosynthesis in screening mammography.
  • The impact of breast tomosynthesis on diagnostic workups.
  • Patient cases comparing conventional mammography with conventional mammography plus breast tomosynthesis.

Includes a 15 minute 2015 update presented by Dr. Durand covering the following:

  • Differences between vendor options for presently FDA-approved tomosynthesis units
  • Review the literature since last webinar (2013) regarding:
    • Screening mammography with tomosynthesis
    • Diagnostic mammography with tomosynthesis
    • Cost analysis of tomosynthesis
    • Demonstrate what we have learned about the tomosynthesis appearance of cancer

Ultrasound & MR Elastography In Children
Released: October 01, 2016 Expires: September 30, 2018 CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Daniel J. Podberesky, MD
16462

Ultrasound and MR elastography are relatively new, clinically validated, and highly reliable and reproducible imaging techniques to non-invasively, rapidly, and cost-effectively evaluate chronic liver disease in children and adults.

These techniques have widespread applicability in the pediatric population, not only in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), a leading cause of chronic liver disease in U.S. children, but in a variety of other pediatric chronic liver diseases. By measuring tissue stiffness, the radiologist can assist the clinician in identifying the presence of fibrosis within the liver parenchyma.

Histopathologic examination of liver biopsy specimens has long been considered the gold standard for the evaluation of hepatic fibrosis. However, liver biopsy is invasive, costly, not without complications, samples only a fraction of the liver parenchyma, and requires sedation/anesthesia in young children.

In this CME/CE Accredited Expert Forum, Dr. Podberesky will provide a brief overview of ultrasound and MR elastography techniques, review the current literature, applications, and provide imaging examples.

Following Dr. Podberesky's presentation, questions from the audience were taken and answered in a moderated Q&A.

Educational Objectives

  • To understand the basic principles of ultrasound and MR elastography.
  • To understand how to apply liver ultrasound and MR elastography techniques to the pediatric population.
  • To review the role that liver ultrasound and MR elastography play in the clinical evaluation and surveillance of liver fibrosis and inflammation in children.

This Program Has Been Supported Through An Unrestricted Educational Grant from Philips Healthcare.
