We are excited to announce that we have added a Friday Night Lecture to our yearly Radiology CME Conference.

The OHSU Radiology Visiting Professor lecture series is thrilled to welcome Dr. Scott Flamm, Head of the Section of Cardiovascular Imaging, at the Cleveland Clinic in October 2013. Dr. Flamm will present two lectures for the OHSU Imaging Update weekend.  

New to the OHSU Imaging Update is a pre-conference evening for specialized CME.  Friday evening, October 4th, Dr. Flamm will present a talk titled  “Cardiac MR & CT - Clinical Indications for Advanced Imaging", which will cover topics of ischemia and viability imaging in cardiomyopathies.  Friday evenings events will be open to attendees of the OHSU Imaging Update and for other attendees at a reduced fee.  Dr. Christina Fuss will present a talk titled "Why advanced cardiac imaging is important - literat" Friday evening.  A total of 2 hours of CME are available.  The CME program will appeal to Radiologists, Cardiologists, and others interested in cardiovascular imaging.  Philips Healthcare will sponsor the event.
