Abdominal and Thoracic Imaging Guidelines Applied: Evidence Versus Opinion 2021

Each lecture in this focused Touchstone Course offers a concise overview of guidelines for common abdominal imaging findings on ultrasound, CT, and MRI. Emphasizing evidence-based management recommendations—supported by the literature and guidelines from both radiology and specialty societies—these high-impact lectures will help optimize clinically relevant reports and knowledge of when follow-up is not indicated.
