Live SA-CME Sessions

Special sessions have been designated as Self-Assessment CME (SA-CME) sessions to help physicians and physicist attendees meet the requirements of the American Board of Radiology’s (ABR) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. The target audience for these sessions is physicians who are maintaining their ABR certification.

All SA-CME sessions are open to the paid meeting attendees, but only those registrants that purchased during registration can participate in the SA-CME component of these sessions.
