This Image Reporting Module is aimed at radiologists, oncologists and other specialists who are interested in boosting their clinical competences in the interpretation and identification of different patterns from rectal cancer MRI cases in order to better plan radiation therapy.
This Image Reporting Module is aimed at radiologists, oncologists and other specialists who are interested in boosting their clinical competences in the interpretation and identification of different patterns from rectal cancer MRI cases in order to better plan radiation therapy. The module consists of 5 interesting real cases related to the topic, carefully prepared by Dr. Roberto Garcia Figueiras.
The simulator enables participants to practise in a real environment which replicates the work of specialists who work with diagnostic imaging techniques. It is a "learning by doing" learning environment which helps users to learn from both their mistakes and correct answers when interpreting the images; once each case has been completed, the user will receive the answers immediately, with comments both on the structured report and on the images in order to reinforce the entire learning process.
By achieving 66% correct answers in each module, you will receive 2 CME credits from EACCME.
- Learn to perform a methodological and standardised reading of the CT and MRI scan images for rectal cancer.
- Recognise the imaging date and assess the staging of rectal cancer.
- Learn to identify the relevant local anatomy in order to adequately simulate and plan the radiation therapy for rectal cancer.
