Practical Radiology 2022 – Core Topics in Emergency Radiology


Practical Radiology 2022 – Core Topics in Emergency Radiology
Radiology CME, Radiology Conference 

POSTPONED | ARIA Resort & Casino


19 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)

Open to all radiologists


We have made the difficult decision to postpone both the in-person and live stream of Practical Radiology 2022: Core Concepts in Emergency Radiology.

As physicians, we set the example through our actions in managing the spread of COVID-19. It would be both imprudent and unsafe to move forward with our conference during the ongoing surge in cases across the country.

We evaluated several alternative plans and have decided to postpone the event until early 2023, at which time we will hopefully be able to meet in person at the ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

Please keep an eye on your inbox for details on the rescheduled conference dates. You can also access our weekly, free CME courses which we will continue to publish throughout 2022 at https://cme.vrad.com/.
