OAR CME Program

Due to COVID-19 epidemic we have postponed our Spring CMEs until the Fall, contingent on C-19 developments. Thank you for understanding.

Since 2007, more than 7,400 radiologists, technologists and related specialists from throughout Ontario and across Canada have attended 56 OAR CME events. The OAR brings in renowned keynote speakers who are the best in their field and promotes Canadian academia to develop practical and cutting-edge CME programming.  

All programs incorporate new information, refinements in curriculum and changes to clinical practice guidelines in collaboration with multi-disciplinary medical professionals and association.  The introduction of live webcast CME's has revolutionized the way radiologists and technologists consume continuing medical education courses.  They now have have the ability to watch OAR CMEs from the confort of your own home and at their convenience.

OAR Breast Imaging and Pathology Correlation CME Radiologists

An important role of the radiologist who performs breast biopsy is to decide on the concordance or discordance and provide recommendations for management. This course will provide a deep understanding of common and rare breast pathologies apthogenesis and their imaging presentations and how should they clinically managed. At the same time, this course will touch into more practical scenarios when biopsy can be avoided.

OAR Breast Imaging and Pathology Correlation CME Techs

The technologist has a key role not only in obtaining the images but also by being the first to see the patient. Obtaining the right history is an important tool in understanding the pathology and not always captured in the standard question are. Through examples this course will emphasize different pathologies and the technologist angles on how this can be influenced. For the ultrasound technologist, in addition to the history, there is also an important role in getting the right image and showing other findings if being familiar with the pathogenesis. This can make the decision for concordance much easier and more accurate.

OAR Prostate MRI Workshop Review CME RAD

This CME teaching activity is designed to provide practical information for radiologists who want to start or enhance their prostate MRI skills. It will include didactic lectures presented by experienced radiologists in the field and review of many interesting Prostate MRI cases. The participants will acquire basic knowledge and practical skills to interpret multi-parametric MR image cases and learn to use the PIRADS v2.1 for assessment and standardized reporting. Patient preparation, scan protocols, scan quality, bi-parametric and multi-parametric MRI will be discussed. An overview of the Prostate Imaging Reporting & Data System (PI-RADS) v2.1 lexicon and how this system is used to improve diagnosis will be presented. During the Hands-on interactive workshop session, the participants will be able to review over 30 cases with the experts
