CAR 2021 – Sessions Presented by CAR Affiliate Societies
CAR 2021 will deliver an engaging and provocative scientific program with a dash of social. This year’s programming includes sessions presented by the CAR Affiliate Societies related to their respective subspecialties of thoracic, emergency/trauma/acute care, abdominal, and pediatrics.
CETARS Sessions and Networking Event
The Canadian Emergency, Trauma and Acute Care Radiology Society (CETARS) presents three sessions and a networking event:
Emergency Neuroradiology – Thursday, April 29 (13:00-14:30 EDT)
This session includes a review of the role of MRI in the acute phase of traumatic spinal cord injury, common and uncommon sources of intracranial hemorrhage, and imaging modalities, findings and guidelines for diagnosis, and treatment of blunt cerebrovascular injury.
Featuring: Drs. Jason Talbott, Laurent Letourneau-Guillon, Savvas Nicolaou, Carlos Torres.
CETARS Networking Event - Thursday, April 29 (18:00 - 19:00 EDT)
Join this networking event to learn more about CETARS and participate in a live discussion around key topics facing emergency, trauma and acute care radiologists in Canada and around the world.
Imaging of Thoracic Trauma – Thursday, April 29 (15:00-16:10 EDT)
This session will include discussions on image findings of non-vascular thoracic injuries in the context of blunt and penetrating trauma, injuries to the major vasculature in chest after trauma, and the role of multidetector CT (MDCT) in penetrating and blunt cardiac trauma in acute settings.
Featuring: Drs. Nicolas Murray, Ferco Berger, Savvas Nicolaou.
Abdominal Emergencies – Friday, April 30 (11:00-12:10 EDT)
This session includes an overview of imaging of acute pelvic pain in female patients, abdominal emergencies in cancer patients, and the role of focused assessment of sonography in trauma and MDCT in patients with penetrating abdominal injuries.
Featuring: Drs. Anthony Hanbidge, Raffaella Basilico, Michael Patlas.
CSAR Sessions and Networking Event
The Canadian Society of Abdominal Radiology (CSAR) presents two sessions and a networking event:
Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) - Thursday, April 29 (13:00-14:30 EDT)
This session includes an overview of and reviews the appropriate population for application of ultrasound (US) LI-RADS, contrast-enhanced US & LI-RADS, the need for LI-RADS and review of the current version 2018, and LI-RADS tumour response algorithm.
Featuring: Drs. Alison Harris, Tae Kim, An Tang, Ania Kielar.
Incidentalomas: Now What? - Friday, April 30 (13:00 - 14:10 EDT)
This session will include the review of recommendations from the CAR Incidental Findings Working Group on the management of the incidental renal mass and management of incidental hepatobiliary findings in adults, as well as the exploration of incidental splenic and intra-abdominal nodal findings and management of these incidental findings.
Featuring: Drs. Iain Kirkpatrick, Jeff Bird, Gary Brahm
CSAR Networking Event - Friday, April 30 (18:00 - 19:00 EDT)
Join this networking event to learn more about CSAR and participate in a live discussion around key topics facing abdominal radiologists in Canada and around the world. This event will also feature a fun trivia activity.
The Canadian Society of Pediatric Radiology (CanSPR) presents one session:
Pediatric Emergencies for the General Radiologist – Saturday, May 1 (11:00-12:30 EDT)
This session includes case-based presentations on pediatric chest with a special focus on how the radiological presentation on thoracic emergencies varies with patient age, illustration of common abdominal emergencies in children, and neurological emergencies with an emphasis on differential diagnosis and most appropriate imaging modality.
Featuring: Drs. Katya Rozovsky, Govind Chavhan, Elka Miller.
CAR 2021 is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and approved by the CAR. The CAR 2021 scientific programme is approved for a maximum of 20.25 credits (Section 1).
