CAR 2023 - Advancing Imaging Care Through Innovation
This year's program, developed by the CAR 2023 Annual Scientific Meeting Planning Committee, focuses on technological innovation as a crucial element in the advancement of imaging care. The program will offer a robust mix of didactic lectures, interactive question and answer sessions, and will provide a variety of ways to enhance every participant’s learning experience. CAR 2023 offers three days of high-quality didactic educational programming, a dedicated Trainee Day, as well as two pre-conference interactive workshops.
This program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, consultation with experts in the field, survey data detailing the perceived and unperceived needs of members as well as the experience and expertise of the scientific planning committee. Additionally, a historical review and analysis of educational content covered in the past five Annual Scientific Meetings (ASM) as well as subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations were reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program.
This meeting is designed for all general and subspecialty radiologists as well as radiology residents and fellows whose work involves performing or interpreting images, determining appropriateness, and using advanced equipment and tools to help guide therapeutic decision-making and help improve clinical outcomes.
