Course Overview
This series of five interactive webinars on liver, abdomen, body, breast, and brain will focus on challenging and difficult cases, stressing a practical, clinically-oriented approach to interpretation, diagnosis, and communication with referring physicians. The series will offer practitioners the opportunity to look over the shoulder of expert faculty and review cases not routinely encountered in daily practice. The principles and current status of clinical applications using the newest MRI methodologies and contrast media will be discussed in support of the case review and in response to questions that arise during the course of the series.
