Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: June 1, 2017   •   Expiration Date: May 31, 2019
Much of the data supporting safety and efficacy of definitive radiation therapy (RT) in patients with non-mela-nomatous skin cancer (NMSC) is older, when its use was more common. Improvements are needed to better represent and cat-egorize high-risk disease. Treatment should be intensified with multimodality therapy for advanced disease. Clinicians must keep abreast of evolving treatment paradigms and novel systemic therapies NMSC. This article reviews indications, dosing, tech-niques, and outcomes for external-beam RT for NMSC.

Applied hepatobiliary scintigraphy in chronic gallbladder diseases
Mark Tulchinsky, MD, FACNM
Estimated time for completion: 1 hour   •   Date of release and review: September 1, 2016   •   Expiration Date: August 31, 2018
Educational gaps are responsible for a significant variability in methodological practice in the use of CCK-CS with calculation of GBEF in patients with suspected gallbladder diseases.  In addition, emerging evidence continues to refine the methodology of CCK-CS.  Clinicians must remain abreast of current recommendations and innovative practices in order to provide the most specific CCK-CS test results in patients with suspected FGBD.
This article will address the role of hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) in the diagnosis and management of this often challenging clinical conundrum.
