Sharpen Clinical Skills to Enhance Patient Care at ACR 2016

Washington, DC — Radiology and imaging professionals will gain needed clinical education expertise to deliver valued-based care at ACR 2016 —The Crossroads of Radiology®. “Emerging health care models are changing the way physicians make patient care decisions, whether in large academic medical centers or small rural practices,” said Cheri Canon, MD, FACR, chair of the ACR 2016 Program Committee. “The focus now is on achieving higher patient satisfaction and care quality, better population-wide health outcomes and reduced costs,” she added. “At ACR 2016, diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists and interventional radiologists will improve their practices with extensive clinical education sessions,” said Canon, “including ones with emphasis on advancing lung cancer and mammography screening practices.” ACR collaborates with a number of allied societies — and delivers top-notch educational programs to provide diverse offerings. Below is a partial list of the 35 sessions in the ACR 2016 Clinical Education Pathway.

This study sought to determine the incidence rates of all gynecologic, including peritoneal, malignancies in the U.S. Active Duty population compared to the general US population as reported in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results Program database. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gynecologic cancers diagnosed in U.S. Active Duty women aged 20-59 between 2004 and 2013 were retrospectively ascertained. Cancer cases were identified in both the Automated Central Tumor Registry and the Military Health System Data Repository. All cases in Automated Central Tumor Registry plus cases recorded in Military Health System Data R...

CONCLUSIONS: Fusion genes were the most common genetic cause of pediatric PTCs. Fusion gene positive PTCs showed more aggressive behavior than fusion gene negative PTCs. Several novel rearrangements were identified. Fusion genes seem to be a molecular marker number one in pediatric PTC patients. PMID: 32495721 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
