The 2014 Imaging Seminar was a great success. Please join us for the 29th Annual Imaging Seminar which will be in a new season and at a new location! Mark your calendar now for March 9-13, 2016 at the Stowe Mountain Lodge in Stowe, Vermont.

Overview

The 2014 Fall Imaging Seminar will take place at The Essex in Essex, Vermont. Nationally recognized guest faculty and members of the University of Vermont Department of Radiology will review current topics and trends in imaging with a focus in Musculoskeletal MRI and Neuroradiology. We will also be reviewing selected topics in Breast, Cardiac and Abdominal Imaging as well as Advanced MRI sequences.

Objectives

This program has been designed with the practicing radiologist in mind, with an emphasis on clinical applicability. Following this course, participants should be more aware of the current MRI techniques: imaging of the knee, hip and wrist; advanced MRI neuroimaging of the brain; sports-related spine injuries as well as MRI artifacts and their mitigation. Selected topics in cardiac, renal, hepatic and breast imaging will also be discussed.

Fall Foliage and Hotel Information

Fall Foliage season is a very popular time to visit Vermont. Color change usually begins in mid-September and runs through the first two to three weeks in October - an international attraction when hotels routinely sell out. This course is designed so that participants are free on Saturday afternoon to enjoy the spectacular Vermont scenery and other area tourist attractions.

The Essex, "Vermont's Culinary Resort & Spa," is the Burlington area's only AAA Four Diamond property. The resort, featuring on-site golf, ropes course, pond, and much more, is set on 18 acres of Vermont countryside. See more at the hotel website: THE ESSEX
