Live SA-CME Sessions

Sunday, October 24 - Wednesday, October 27


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.

SA-CME Session Fees

Each SA-CME session is $50 and can be added to your registration.

SA-CME Session Availability

In-Person Attendees

Registrants can purchase access to the SA-CME sessions happening during the in-person meeting in Chicago and the two SA-CMEs available in the Digital XP platform. Sessions that are part of the Digital XP platform will not be held in-person in Chicago. Live meeting attendees can still register and participate, but will need to do so from their own computer and location.

Digital XP Only Registrants

Registrants can only purchase access to the two SA-CME sessions available in the Digital XP platform.
