About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME series provides a practical teaching course for those who order, perform or interpret magnetic resonance imaging studies. The program is organized in such a way to allow subscribers to purchase all or a subsection of the program. Three focused segments provide a comprehensive yet practical review and update on the clinical applications of MRI. The series begins by focusing on the head and spine, moves into the musculoskeletal system and concludes with cardiovascular and body applications.
Target Audience
This CME activity is designed to educate diagnostic imaging physicians who supervise and interpret MRI/MRA studies. 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 MRI exams.
Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Discuss the expanding role of MR in medical imaging.
  • Optimize MRI protocols and techniques.
  • Utilize MRI to evaluate neurological, musculoskeletal, body and breast pathology.
  • Review MRI safety updates.
