February 15 marked the launch of the CAR’s national curriculum, “Artificial Intelligence in Radiology: Foundations to Current Applications.” This initiative, championed by the CAR Artificial Intelligence (AI) Standing Committee, is the first and only curriculum of its kind to encompass the practical, technical, and ethical issues of AI integration into radiology from a Canadian perspective. Completing courses from this accredited curriculum will count toward your Royal College MOC requirements.
Join your colleagues and peers on RAD Academy, the CAR’s e-institute for CPD, for our virtual summer series and learn about new developments in MRI and the clinical implementation of modern MR imaging protocols. The series will consist of three, one-hour interactive sessions taking place at the end of July 2020. The lectures will provide an overview on current developments in contrast enhanced MR Imaging with a focus on safety, efficacy of MR contrast media and the implementation of modern imaging protocols in the central nervous system and breast imaging.
The CAR is here to support your continuing professional development (CPD) needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the cancellation of many medical education events, we know that our members are seeking alternative opportunities to continue their training pursuits and enhance their competencies and skills.
