The Right Scan From Head to Toe: Radiology Utilization Conference Modules [EM1805B]
$0.00 The purpose of this program is to review cost-effective, evidence-based radiology options for diagnostic and therapeutic imaging for healthcare providers (physicians, nurse practitioners, PAs, technologists, nurses, etc.). Participation in this online course will help learners have a better understanding of appropriateness and utility for diagnostic imaging for their patients. 
EM1804C “Care and Maintenance of the Aging Brain” (IM GR-040618)
  • AMA
$0.00 The purpose of this presentation, “Care and Maintenance of the Aging Brain” is to review the current research, clinical care, and social context of promoting brain health as people age.  Research demonstrates that brains retain the capacity for neurogenesis even into old age but basic scientists, clinicians, and sociologist are just beginning to understand how we might best stimulate brain health and avoid neurodegeneration.  The presentation also reviews current recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of dementia, with a focus on Alzheimer’s disease.  We next examine the effectiven
EM1804D "Colorectal Cancer Screening: Issues in 2018” (IM GR-041318)
  • AMA
$0.00 I will review the demographics, genetics, and risk factors for colorectal cancer (CRC).  I will discuss the rationale for new guidelines for CRC screening, examine advantages and limitations of various screening options, and explore whether there is a “preferred” method of screening test.The talk will highlight the growing problem of CRC before age 50, and implications in clinical practice. Quality metrics for screening programs will be discussed.
EM1804E “Chronic Disease Management and the Shifting Sands of Payment Reform” (IM GR-042018)
  • AMA
$0.00 The purpose is to introduce the concept of alternative payment models that focus on payment for value-based care, and provide an overview of Southwestern Health Resources, which is an Accountable Care Organization.
EM1804F “Cellular Therapies and Regenerative Medicine Strategies for Type 1 Diabetes” (IM GR-042718)
  • AMA
$0.00 Strategies for restoration of beta cell mass will fall under either "replacement" (transplantation of insulin producing cells), "differentiation/reprogramming" (generation of insulin producing cells from native non-insulin-producing cells), "regeneration" or "expansion" of residual beta cell mass (e.g., from endogenous precursors/stem cells or by beta cell expansion in micro-secretors).
EM1805F “Controlling Cholesterol” (IM GR-050418)
  • AMA
$0.00 The purpose is to inform the audience about the mechanism that regulates the cholesterol content in blood, and to describe agents that lower blood cholesterol and reduce heart attacks.
EM1805H “Diet, the Gut Microbiome, and its Metabolome: Impact on Health and Disease” (IM GR-051818)
  • AMA
$0.00 The human gut contains a vast number of microorganisms known collectively as the “gut microbiota”. Despite its importance in maintaining the health of the host, growing evidence suggests the gut microbiota may also be an important factor in the pathogenesis of various diseases, a number of which have shown a rapid increase in incidence over the past few decades. In this presentation, I will provide a broad overview of the gut microbiome, the relationship between diet and the production of microbial metabolites, and the role that they play in health and disease.
1st Annual UT Southwestern Endoscopic Ear Surgery Course (RP1811A)
  • AMA
  • Attendance
11/02/2018 $995.00 Transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES) is a recent development in the management of temporal bone pathology. Cadaveric lab dissections, lectures, panel discussions, case reviews, as well as question and answer sessions will be the educational modalities used in this course. Course participants should be able to identify clinically relevant anatomic temporal bone landmarks with the use of the endoscope. Course attendees will recognize the advantages and disadvantages of TEES as compared to traditional microscopic approaches to the temporal bone.
EM1806E "Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD): Current Insights into the Disease, its Diagnosis and Management." (IM GR-060118)
  • AMA
$0.00 PAD is common, however often underrecognized. It is an important cause of morbidity particularly in older adults, those with diabetes mellitus, and smokers. Risk factors for PAD are similar to the risk factors of atherosclerosis elsewhere and modification of these risks is key to successful management of PAD. Intermittent claudication (IC) is a classic symptom of PAD, but the vast majority of patients remain asymptomatic. PAD in patients with certain high risk features can be diagnosed by an abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) value.
