SBI Webinars and Case Modules on ACR Appropriateness Criteria and Practice Parameters

SBI’s Webinar and Case Module Series on ACR Appropriateness Criteria (AC) and Practice Parameters (PP) addresses the management of common clinical conditions and provides detailed explanations and images for the less common scenarios. For e.g. in the US and MRI interventions cases, the webinars discuss the pearls and tricks of complicated biopsies. “How does one biopsy a lesion that is challenging because of its location and/or size?”

Participants will benefit from a review, update or improvement in how they manage their breast imaging patients. Specifically, the webinars and case modules address the scope of the best imaging exam to order in the initial evaluation of common conditions. These webinars and case modules will appeal to radiologists who see a small amount of breast cases, radiologists who do not have a colleague with which to discuss a particularly challenging management, to our international members, and to our members-in-training. The webinars and case modules were created by SBI’s CME/SAM Committee.

The Webinar Series and the Case Module Series are available individually to members for $250 each (non-member price: $350). Or, buy both series and save up to 25%!
