This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians and other health care providers involved in the care of patients with diseases of the brain, spine, bones, breast, lung, and intra-abdominal organs.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
1. Improve their performance and interpretation of brain, breast, thoracic and abdominal imaging studies.
2. Recognize the uses and limitations of CT and MRI for various body applications and organ systems.
3. Recognize the appearance of tumors of the neurological system, breast, lung, and intra-abdominal organs.
4. Describe the techniques used to perform and interpret CT and MRI of the brain, spine, bones and joints.
5. Describe the techniques used to perform and interpret mammography, MRI, and ultrasound of the breasts.
6. State the clinical indications and optimal approach for radiological approach to indeterminate pulmonary nodules.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Global Radiology CME. The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
USA and Canada:
The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 21.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The total credits are inclusive of 4.0 in CT, 15 in MR, and 7.0 in Breast Imaging. The breast imaging credits are inclusive 1.25 in breast MRI, 1.0 in breast ultrasound, 5.25 in digital-mammography, and 0.5 in stereotactic biopsy.
Europe and United Kingdom:
Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes (UEMS) - (European Union of Medical Specialists) Mutual Recognition Agreement with the American Medical Association (AMA).
Following the agreement on the mutual recognition of credits between the AMA and the UEMS-EACCME®, European physicians can earn their ECMEC®s by attending live events worldwide, except in Europe, that have been certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Therefore, Europeans from member countries of the UEMS are permitted to claim up to 21 hours of CPD.
Australia and New Zealand:
According to the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR), Australian and New Zealand participants in Imaging in Israel - 2017 are able to claim up to 21 CPD points, with up to 15 points for MRI and up to 7.0 points for breast imaging. For partial attendance, points may be claimed pro rata at 1 point per learning hour. This is the official letter from Elaine Shao - Project Officer (CPD) for RANZCR: Link to Letter from RANZCR.
According to the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA), South African participants in Imaging in Israel - 2017 are able to claim up to 21 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). For your convenience, we will specify the amount of ethics points and clinical points, as we are cognizant that every practitioner is required to accumulate 30 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) per twelve-month period and five of the units must be on ethics, human rights and medical law.
Israeli physicians may claim credit according to the rules of their professional licensing body.
Imaging in Israel-2017 is qualified by the American Board of Radiology in meeting the criteria for self-assessment toward the purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.

This course will offer Self-Assessment CME credits (SA-CME or SAM): All SAM's are included with the registration fee.
As of January 1, 2017, American Board of Radiology (ABR) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 requirements: To satisfy MOC Part 2, the ABR requires 75 CME credits every three years, at least 25 of which must be credits from Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME or SAM) activities. Podium presentations with a post-session assessment instrument qualify as SA-CME. Some organizations call these "SA-CME,” and others call them “SAM's.” Both terms are equivalent, with the number of credits determined by the ACCME or an ACCME-accredited category 1 CME provider.
