2019 Clinical Nuclear Medicine - A Video CME Teaching Activity

About This CME Teaching Activity
This CME activity is designed to provide a practical yet in-depth review of nuclear medicine with concentration on the latest trends, protocols and advances in clinical diagnosis and patient management. Faculty discuss techniques, tips and pitfalls through didactic lectures and case-based presentations.

Target Audience
This course should benefit nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists. It should also benefit physicians who supervise and interpret nuclear medicine procedures. The course should also prove valuable for physicians who order these studies.

Educational Objectives
At the completion of this CME teaching activity, you should be able to:
  • Apply state-of-the-art protocols to assess a hepatobiliary and gastrointestinal disorders.
  • Discuss current and future directions of nuclear medicine.
  • Describe the role of nuclear medicine when used to evaluate thyroid disorders.
  • Explain the expanding role of nuclear medicine studies in the detection and management of pulmonary, bone and neuroendocrine disorders.
