Conferences, Seminars & Symposia
The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences is proud to organize many continuing education events throughout the year. Our three major conferences are open to the public, our various symposia are open to invited participants and speakers, and our seminar series is open to anyone affiliated with our health system.
January/ February, annually.
This comprehensive course in abdominal imaging is intended to provide in-depth exposure to abdominal anatomy and the disease processes of the abdomen and pelvis. Major course topics include state-of-the art CT/MR protocols; abdominal trauma; hepatobiliary, pancreatic, splenic and gastrointestinal tract imaging; and genitourinary tract imaging including the male and female pelvis.
Fall annually, upcoming: 2019.
This comprehensive course includes didactic lectures on brain and spine diseases, with special sessions on vital differential diagnoses, reinforced with interactive case reviews presented as unknown cases. This unique intensive course is specifically designed for brain and spine clinicians and general radiologists, as well as neuroradiologists in both academic and non-academic environments. This gives an unprecedented experience for attendees to personally discuss individual cases with best-selling authors. Participants also have the opportunity to bring their own anonymous cases for discussion with these brain and spine imaging experts.
March, annually, upcoming: March 25-29, 2019.
This comprehensive course in head and neck imaging is intended to give an in depth exposure to head and neck anatomy, diagnoses, and differential diagnoses. The course is divided into two parts daily. The morning sessions of each day are made up of didactic lectures covering all anatomic areas of the head and neck, with special sessions on the temporal bone, skull base, squamous cell carcinoma, orbit, paranasal sinuses, and pediatric head and neck issues.
Each afternoon is a mix of didactic lectures on head and neck imaging issues, protocols, and diseases with many interactive case reviews covering unknown head and neck cases correlating with the morning sessions. This time is designed to present the participant with hundreds of individual case examples of head and neck lesions. Interactive case presentations will be given with each individual case initially viewed as an unknown, maximizing the faculty-participant dynamic.
Beautiful Salt Lake City and Park City, Utah are the settings for this symposium showcasing some of the brightest minds in radiology and imaging sciences. A diverse group of graduate- and post-doctoral level researchers from across the USA have been selected and invited to speak at the symposium, engaging the symposium participants in topics such as MRI physics, molecular medicine, interventional radiology, and big data processing. Keynote speakers from academia and industry also join in the weekend of idea exploration.
Radiology and Imaging Sciences Seminar Series
8-10 times per year
This seminar series highlights clinical-research collaborations by our researchers and clinicians, displaying some of the most innovative and cutting edge translational research going on in our system. We are proud of our many collaborations across clinical specialties and use this seminar as a way to not just educate each other about new technologies and applications, but to contribute to the strong University of Utah atmosphere of collaboration.
