NEW ONLINE COURSES

We’ve just added 12 new courses to our online course library. You can choose from cardiac CT, contrast safety, breast imaging, vascular ultrasound and OB–GYN ultrasound. You’ll find some of the lowest CME pricing around and some of our online courses are free. Click here now to find the online CME that you want.

AN INTERACTIVE ONLINE COURSE ON CAROTID DIAGNOSIS

We just rolled out a new online course called Carotid Ultrasound Case Series: What is the Diagnosis?. It takes you through a series of four clinical cases where you choose the diagnosis then compare your response to the correct one; you get a concise discussion and references for deeper study.
This interactive online course provides 1 CME credit (or one SA-CME credit for MOC). The Carotid Ultrasound Case Series is one of the many options in our vascular ultrasound education program.

WE’VE DROPPED THE PRICE FOR ONLINE CME

Just in time for year-end CME purchases, we have reduced the price of online CME vouchers to just $9.50 per credit when you buy 10. Just choose our new 10 credit package for just $95. Don’t need 10 credits now? No problem. Your online CME vouchers never expire, so you can use them later on. Just click here to get started.

Attend a Conference Live from Home

This Fall we are introducing our first opportunity for you to attend a conference from the comfort of your home or office via live webstream. Now you can sign up to attend Pitfalls in Radiology, chaired by Dr. Michael Federle. The Pitfalls conference offers radiologists tools to avoid the traps and errors of everyday practice. The conference will be held in Las Vegas but if we don't see you there we'll see you on the Internet, where you will be able to view the sessions, participate in discussions and earn CME and SAM credits.

Need SAMs?

Under the new MOC rules of the American Board of Medical Specialties you may now earn SAM credits for completing an enduring material CME program that is structured for SA-CME credits. We are in the process of retooling our DVD programs to meet those criteria and you'll soon be able to earn SA-CME credits with all our DVD programs. Go to www.iame.com/DVD to learn more.
