ACR Puts CME on the Web

by Michael Johns, Project Manager | July 07, 2006

Virtual Learning
"The Waiting Room" is a virtual version of the real thing--a lobby full of patients awaiting to consult with their physician. Logging in starts the clock.

"The setting for this program is a true-to-life waiting room in a breast-imaging center where you must interpret your patients' studies by the end of the day," Davis explained. "In this module, you will review a series of challenging multimodality breast-imaging cases using questions, rationales, and references."

Once completed--which takes an average of 4 hours for each--both interactive sessions provide a score and a review of any cases that were misdiagnosed. The system also lets practitioners see how they fared against their peers across the country who also have participated.

Available on the Internet - Anywhere
Not only are all learning opportunities through the ACR Campus available online and on demand, but they also are available through any Internet-connected computer.

"When talking to members and nonmembers during the development period, the ACR decided to move toward Web-based products to ensure easy access 24 hours a day, all from the convenience of a desktop," Davis said. "As long as the CME is available for a product, one can log on to the ACR Campus [and] access purchased courses offered by the ACR Campus anywhere, anyplace."

Currently, work is being done to expand ACR Campus offerings. In the coming weeks, the ACR Campus will debut "Grand Rounds," in which a new topic will be presented in monthly "rounds" designed for both radiology residency programs and practicing radiologists.

Rounds currently are scheduled to be led by Lee Rogers, MD, FACR, who will cover Diagnostic Considerations in Shoulder Trauma; William G. Bradley, Jr, MD, PhD, FACR, discussing Proton MR Spectroscopy in the Brain for Radiologists; Larry Bassett, MD, FACR, addressing Digital Mammography; and Pablo Ros, MD, MPH, FACR, looking at New Horizons in Abdominal Imaging: Virtual Lapartomy and Beyond.

An OB/ultrasound Web lecture series is on tap for the fall, and new lectures will continue to be added on a quarterly basis.

Sessions can be purchased online and accessed immediately. Radiologists eager to discover more are invited to take a campus tour.
