World-class oral presentations featured at ARRS 2017 annual meeting
New Research in 13 Radiology Subspecialities Presented During Conference
Leesburg, VA, May 2, 2017– Oral presentations delivered by some of the world's most renowned researchers and radiologists will be among the highlights of the ARRS 2017 Annual Meeting April 30-May 5 in New Orleans, LA. The presentations will cover 13 radiology subspecialities and will be designed to provide innovative, educational information for conference attendees.
All presentations submitted are subjected to a highly competitive review process to determine the most informative and best suited for the ARRS Annual Meeting. Among the top presentations are:
- Not One of the Usual Suspects: MRI Features of Insertional Lateral Cord Plantar Fasciitis. This study reports MRI findings of insertional lateral cord plantar fasciitis and reviews the presenting symptoms and suspected diagnoses.
- Lack of Association Between LGE and LVOTO in Asymmetric Septal Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy. The authors evaluate the relationship between LVOTO and myocardial fibrosis characterized by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac MRI in patients with asymmetric septal hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
- Impact of Ancillary LI-RADS Imaging Features Versus Major LI-RADS Imaging Features. The study evaluates how often the initial likelihood of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) based on major features in the Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System (LI-RADS) is modified by ancillary features on MRI. It also compares initial and modified scores for the prediction of true benign lesions and HCC based on follow-up.
