Sunday Featured Sessions
ARRS is proud to present the following featured sessions May 5. All sessions will be available on demand with credit for ARRS 2024 registrants.
Learning to Lead and the Art of Negotiation
With the shortage of radiologists due to increasing volumes and earlier retirements, many are being placed into positions of leadership earlier in their career. The ability to negotiate and understand contracts is now more important than ever. This session presented in partnership with the American Association for Women in Radiology will provide participants with tips, skills, and strategies for becoming a leader, negotiating contracts and clinical expectations, and working together to ensure gender parity in the workplace.
The ARRS Wellness Summit
Over the course of three sessions, this year’s summit will offer practical solutions to help participants address operational inefficiencies, foster stronger leadership practices in their workplace, improve radiology workflow through AI, and develop peer support programs.
Resident Symposium: Disrupters of the Radiology Workforce
New technologies, an unprecedented shortage of radiologists, and a dramatic increase in imaging volume have challenged traditional radiology workforce models. This symposium will explore the current and future trends shaping the practice of radiology and the radiology workforce.
Tools to Improve Radiology Workflow Now
Many quality/process improvement projects do not see the expected results in improved throughput and volume. The Theory of Constraints is a practical approach to identifying rate limiting steps and optimizing the throughput. This course will focus on how to identify rate-limiting steps and simple tools you can utilize to improve throughput through a rate limiting step.
Ready, Set, Stereotactic-Guided Breast Biopsies!
This instructional hands-on course is a treasure trove of knowledge and insights that will transform your practice! Our expert faculty will guide participants through the most recent advances in stereotactic-guided breast biopsy. The program delves into the intricacies of the procedure, examines challenging cases, and empowers practitioners with the skills to handle even the most challenging biopsies. Participants will acquire invaluable knowledge regarding biopsy indications, lesion characteristics, and modern techniques, and will learn to deftly navigate difficult scenarios.
Challenging Cases in Thoracic Imaging: Unknown Film Panel Session
Challenging unknown thoracic imaging cases are common every day in both private and academic practice settings. Panelists with different levels of expertise and training will highlight how the ability to analyze and interrogate imaging findings varies with level of training and years of experience.
High-Resolution 2D and 3D MR Imaging of Medium and Small Joints
High-resolution MR imaging of wrist, fingers, ankle, toes, and elbow joints have received less attention in literature and with routine use of 2D and 3D MR imaging, tissue structures of these small joints and their pathology are delineated in superior details and contrast with improved diagnosis. This session will feature speakers from different tertiary care institutions, experienced in medium and small joint MRI and 3D MRIs.
Theranostics from Head to Toe
This session will provide an overview of the fundamentals of theranostics, describe the critical role of nuclear medicine for the initiation and management of therapy for neurodegenerative disease, and detail the unique role of nuclear medicine in imaging and treatment of oncology.
Screening Patient Pathways Across the Pond: Highlights and Challenges for Radiology in the UK and USA
In this ARRS Global Partner Session, featuring the British Institute of Radiology, speakers will review current practice standards for screening lung and female breast cancer in the UK and USA. Speakers will also address the common and comparative techniques and challenges of maintaining an effective screening program.
A Radiologist’s Perspective on Financial Literacy and Success: From Debt to Wealth
This course will provide an introduction to financial topics relevant to both trainees and practicing radiologists to increase their financial literacy, make more informed decisions and achieve financial independence. We will guide trainees with the transition, help early career radiologists with debt management and experienced radiologists with wealth management and retirement planning.
AJR: Publishing in the Yellow Journal
This session will provide AJR authors, reviewers, and readers with an overview of the journal today. The session will highlight key aspects of journal peer review and production processes, as well as social and digital media initiatives. Focused attention will be provided on writing an Original Research study, a Review of Clinical Perspective article, and an article for the Policy, Quality, and Practice Management section.
Emerging Technologies in Radiology: Help or Hype?
This course will discuss four emerging technologies with a critical eye towards how they may be helpful and how they may be mostly hype. The focus will be on technologies that are available (or almost available) as clinical products: Machine-learning based image reconstruction; abbreviated/focused MRI; quantitative imaging biomarkers; and photon counting CT. Discussion of these topics could assist radiologists with purchase decisions in their practice as well as helping to focus continuing education efforts on technology that is most likely to be of value.
Breast Cryoablation: Why, When, and How?
This course will review and reinforce the appropriate indications for breast cryoablation as well as the skills and techniques required for successful breast cryoablation.
Revolutionizing Clinical MSK Radiology: Harnessing the Power of Machine Learning and AI
Artificial intelligence and machine learning-based approaches for increasing clinical efficiency and productivity represent the new hot topics for MSK radiology, whether it relates to image sorting, fracture detection, bone age determination, osteoarthrosis grading, or automated hip or leg-length measurements, and fast MR imaging. The session will focus on use case scenarios of such approaches for a practicing radiologist.
GU Ought to Know
The presenters will guide participants through challenging cases in genitourinary images. Via these cases, the presenters will review pitfalls that are encountered during interpretation and how to avoid them, referencing recent changes in the literature and guidelines.
