About This CME Activity
This activity is designed to provide a practical yet comprehensive review of body MR imaging protocols in addition to emerging technologies. The faculty explains state-of-the-art clinical information and applications. Pearls and pitfalls on how to best image the body using MR will be presented. 
Target Audience
This CME activity is primarily intended and designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians. It should also be useful for referring physicians who order these studies so that they might gain a greater appreciation of the strengths and limitations of clinically relevant MR studies.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Incorporate state-of-the-art imaging protocols to efficiently evaluate the body using MRI into clinical their practice.
  • Describe the expanding role of MRI in assessing abdomen and pelvis.
  • Optimize body MR angiography protocols and techniques.
  • Differentiate benign and malignant neoplasms of the liver, pancreas, bowel and genitourinary system with MRI.
