Luskin Conference Center Building
Hosted by: Center for Continuing Professional Development

This is a one-day hybrid course aimed to provide physicians with an update on new and emerging image-guided therapies.

Radiologists and other physicians are often unaware of the newest developments in the field of interventional radiology. Specifically, this course will present the newest therapies for hemorrhoids, prostate cancer, joint pain, thyroid nodules, pulmonary embolism, and biliary disease, among others. Presenters from both the USA (UCLA) and Germany (Mannheim) will describe advancements in the field and how we can use these to benefit our patients. Interventional radiology has become a very broad field with applications throughout many organ systems. Physicians need additional training to learn the latest IR treatments and techniques. Lecturers from both the USA and Germany will be able to share updates and new therapies.

The FDA has issued a concept paper that classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non-promotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manage all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. UCLA fully endorses the letter and spirit of these concepts.
