Diagnostic Radiology Program

About the Schedule

The annual meeting of the FRS & FRBMA is an exciting, relevant and dynamic educational program.  The focus of this year’s meeting is “Radiology 2014:  Refocusing the Integrated Practice.”

Each year we tee off the meeting Friday morning with our annual FRS/FRBMA Golf Tournament.  The fun continues Friday evening as our exhibitors and members come together for the popular Wine and Cheese Reception in the Exhibit Hall.  We are always grateful for the exhibitors’ support and we appreciate a personal visit with the exhibitors to thank them for their continued support of the FRS & FRBMA.  There are additional opportunities to interact with our exhibitors on Saturday as the breakfast and coffee breaks will be held in the exhibit hall, and later, exhibitors will lunch with attendees to allow for continued discussion and interaction.

The FRBMA Session begins on Friday afternoon and joins the FRS Diagnostic General Session on Saturday morning with an outstanding lineup of speakers.

The FRS Session will be highlighted by our annual series, “The Steven G. Miles Keynote Socioeconomic Address”, featuring Dr. Bill Thorwarth, CEO of the ACR, a renowned leader and expert in the field of economics and health policy.  On Saturday, there will also be breakout sessions for Radiation Oncology and the Resident and Fellow Section.

Our marquee event, the Gold Medal Reception and Cocktail Party, will be held early Saturday evening to honor the FRS Gold Medal recipient and the FRBMA Above and Beyond The LaDonna Nichols Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

Other outstanding FRS & FRBMA members will also be recognized for their contributions to the practice of radiology throughout the year. The earlier time for this event allows opportunity to go out and enjoy Orlando’s nightlife!

Body and Thoracic Imaging take the spotlight on Sunday. The day begins with the “Irwin L. Entel M.D., FACR Legacy Lecture and Breakfast” presented by the internationally known Dr. Patricia L. Abbitt, with a lecture entitled: “The Radiologist as Doctor”. This is followed by the “Clinical Keynote Lecture” given by Dr. Claudia I. Henschke, a world-renowned researcher and leader of the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (I-ELCAP), an international collaborative group consisting of experts on lung cancer related issues.

Target Audience

This CME activity is structured as a practical teaching course for diagnostic imaging physicians, radiation therapy physicians, and their business managers.  It should benefit radiologists, oncologists, and nuclear medicine physicians, as well as other physicians who supervise and interpret these studies.
