How standards in medical imaging can improve care.
With increasing focus on value-based care, standards are key. This exclusive educational opportunity will enable you to understand how standards are conceived and developed, appreciate the value that standards and other quality measures bring to patient safety, and get hands-on experience with imaging and IT technology.

Effective data management using structured reporting.
This presentation will discuss the key elements of structured reporting incorporate a number of desirable features. Reports should be organized. They should convey information in a logical manner in a way that makes it easy for clinicians to find the necessary data. The report should contain a precise diagnosis and recommendations. Structured reports are not only desirable but necessary for effective and efficient communication.

Imaging innovations for tumor treatment in the IR suite
During this education session we will be focusing on advanced applications for tumor treatment such as CT-like 3D soft-tissue imaging, planning and guidance applications including multimodality imaging, and adding physiologic validation to anatomic imaging. A second focus topic to be discussed will be the high prevalence of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH), making PAE (prostatic artery embolization) an attractive procedure for Interventional Radiologists. Siemens has developed various applications and imaging tools to guide the minimally invasive treatment of PAE to enhance treatment outcomes through 3D imaging.
