Early bird registration pricing has been extended through March 16th! Register Now! 

DESCRIPTION
With the increasing utilization of MR particularly high field magnets radiologists are faced with new challenges in accommodating the increasing demand while maintaining high resolution images.  Safety of MR and gadolinium contrast agents have received recent attention.  MR is typically contraindicated in patients with implanted devices.  However, recently it has been reported that MRI can be safely performed with appropriate precautions.  In addition, MR studies are commonly prescribed with gadolinium contrast agents.  While some of the restrictions of using these agents in patients with borderline/poor renal function were recently lifted by the American College of Radiology, there are new concerns about gadolinium deposition in the brain.  Practicing radiologists need to be familiar with the new MRI technology, as well as safety not only to maintain their national license requirement but to be able to provide the best patient care. This course includes leaders in the field of MRI who will discuss these changes and how they impact the delivery of patient care.

4/16/2018 7:30:00 AM Transoral Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery 4/16/2018 7:30:00 AM 4/16/2018 4:00:00 PM 15 False MM/DD/YYYY Transoral Thyroid and Parathyroid Surgery

Description
Thyroid and Parathyroid cancers have historically accounted for a small percentage of cancers that present in the United States population. However, according to recent data, thyroid cancer is increasing in both incidence and mortality at rates greater than those of the other cancers. This significant trend raised both basic and clinical research in the field and, subsequently, many advances have been made in diagnostic modalities and treatment options for thyroid and parathyroid tumors. Despite the increasing incidence, most thyroid cancers are indolent, and minimizing iatrogenic morbidity is crucial to obtain excellent outcomes.

This course will provide up-to-date information regarding novel treatment methods for surgical thyroid and parathyroid conditions. Despite increasing incidence, there are few educational opportunities for surgeons to learn of these new treatment methods, and even fewer offerings that allow for hands on training. Many practitioners question the extent or role of remote access surgery in this environment.

For Registration please call Suzie Orr at 410-550-0845.

Description

The activity is held approximately monthly at the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, in a multimedia classroom constructed specifically for the learner’s needs. This is a workstation-based training activity, designed to meet American College of Cardiology/ American Heart Association requirements. Each participant has their own workstation to use throughout the activity and receives personal attention and instruction by the activity faculty. A workstation which projects to the front of the room is used by instructors to demonstrate various aspects of CT interpretation. After receiving training on the use of the workstation, a library of cases selected to demonstrate the variety of pathology which can be evaluated by CT (coronary disease, bypass grafts, stents, anomalies, cardiomyopathies, EP, pericardial disease, cardiac tumors) is reviewed. A minimum of 100 cases are reviewed during the five days of the activity.


Twenty-four hours of didactic instruction are included through lectures and reading materials, which will cover topics of patient selection, preparation, radiation, contrast, cardiac anatomy, assessment of cardiac function, cardiac pathology, etc. Members of the Johns Hopkins faculty and guest faculty will present these topics. Participants will take a quiz to confirm understanding of these materials.


The requirement for observation of the acquisition of 50 studies is satisfied by utilizing a combination of onsite observation of approximately 25 studies supplemented by interactive observation of approximately 25 studies performed offsite and viewed by interactive video link. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions during acquisition of the studies (i.e., patient selection, use of beta blockers) and to observe the steps in obtaining the scan by direct observation of the scanner console. The scans that were acquired during the week of the activity are anonymized and participants will interpret these studies on their own time following the five days of onsite training. After faculty review of the participants’ interpretation of these 50 studies and the other elements of the activity, a certificate documenting completion of these studies will be issued.

DESCRIPTION
Sjögren’s syndrome (SS) is a complex autoimmune disease with a substantial health impact. Beyond the effects on individual health, SS and its complications have an estimated annual economic impact of ~$35 billion in the U.S. alone. It is a heterogeneous autoimmune disorder affecting >4,000,000 individuals in the U.S. Moisture-producing glands are universally targeted by the immune system, including salivary and lacrimal glands. Patients frequently develop serious complications that may include lymphoma, pulmonary dysfunction, neuropathy, and debilitating fatigue, among others. Diagnosing SS is a significant challenge and current therapies do little to interrupt pathogenic disease processes. Practitioners need to facilitate precision medicine practices in patient diagnosis, prognosis, therapeutic responses, and prevention to improve patient health outcomes and decrease morbidity.

This symposium is designed to facilitate precision medicine practices in all aspects of clinical care, including patient diagnosis, prognosis, therapeutic responses, and prevention. This pioneering conference specifically seeks to bring together leaders from the Sjögren's syndrome/autoimmune research community to enhance translation of novel discoveries into clinical practice. Practitioners must embrace the advances and new technology to ensure their practice evolves with the field, ultimately improving patient care, quality and safety. Based on recent research, literature review, faculty perception, expert opinion and reviews from previous activity evaluation and outcome survey data, this two and one half day activity will bring together science, technology, evidence-based medicine and leaders in the field to provide updates to an international audience, narrowing the gaps in knowledge.

Participants from academia, industry, and government funding agencies are expected to attend. We expect at least a third of our attendees to be from outside the U.S., in part because the Sjögren’s research community is traditionally very international in nature. Our invited speakers and abstract submissions reflect this international composition. We believe this is especially exciting and important for enhancing international recognition for scientific leadership.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This activity is intended for rheumatologists, ophthalmologists, oral medicine specialists, basic sciences researchers and other healthcare providers interested in Sjögren’s Syndrome and related disease states.

OPTIONAL (LIMITED) ULTRASOUND WORKSHOP (PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED): $150

Please click on the image above for more information or click the registration link at the top of this page to register for this stand alone workshop.  You may add it to your ISSS conference registration.  This workshop is scheduled from 12:30 - 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 18, 2018.  The ISSS general session will kick off at 5:30 p.m. 

Ultrasonography of the major salivary glands has emerged as an important technique for the evaluation of individuals with Sjögren’s syndrome. The structural abnormalities of the glands, elucidated with bedside ultrasonography, have a high degree of specificity for disease diagnosis and can be monitored as a parameter of glandular disease in clinical trials. This 4-hour course will feature key investigators who have pioneered and validated this imaging technique in Sjögren’s syndrome. The goal of the workshop is to provide participants with both up-to-date information on the utility and validity of ultrasonography in Sjögren’s syndrome and the opportunity to practice salivary gland ultrasonography on patient volunteers and scoring ultrasound examinations with direct faculty guidance.

Workshop Objectives:

  -Describe the utility of major salivary gland ultrasonography in the evaluation of patients with Sjögren’s syndrome and other forms of sialadenitis.

  -Perform major salivary gland ultrasonography on a patient with Sjögren’s syndrome, identifying the key abnormalities.

  -Score the observed abnormalities according to accepted international schema.

  -Recognize the utility of ultrasonography to guide fine needle and core needle biopsies of the major salivary glands in the evaluation of enlargement and solitary masses.

Decatur House, 748 Jackson Place NW, Washington, DC 20006

Website: https://www.whitehousehistory.org/decatur-house

Historic Decatur House is one of the oldest surviving homes in Washington, D.C., and one of only three remaining houses in the country designed by neoclassical architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe. Completed in 1818 for naval hero Stephen Decatur and his wife, Susan, the Federal Style house is prominently located across Lafayette Square from the White House. It was successively home to Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren and Edward Livingston, who collectively made Decatur House the unofficial residence of the Secretary of State from 1827 to 1833, each renting the house while they served in that post.

In 1836, John Gadsby and his wife Providence moved into the house and brought their house slaves. They built a two-story structure at the back which became the slave quarters for those workers, who previously lived in the main house. This structure remains as one of the few examples of slave quarters in urban areas. It is physical evidence of African Americans having been held "in bondage in sight of the White House.

The Decatur House is a short, 7-minute walk from the Capital Hilton. Just go south on 16th Street NW for two blocks, turn right on H Street NW and the Decatur House will be on your right.

DESCRIPTION
In daily practice, pathologists must confront ever changing classifications of neoplasms and newer treatments that are based on molecular mechanisms of diseases. Areas in which the field of medicine is changing revolve around, soft tissue tumors in general and gastrointestinal stromal tumors in specific, the new classification of hematopoietic neoplasms, the new classification of head and neck tumors, the complex story of renal neoplasms, and criteria for diagnosis of thyroid tumors, which have all been updated in the past few years. There are also some areas that result in perpetual difficulty, namely diagnosis of melanomas, urothelial lesions, common central nervous system tumors, and hepatic neoplasms. Lastly, classification of colorectal polyps and neoplasms will be addressed, an area of pathology that has drastically changed in the past decade. Drawing on the expertise of past, present, and future Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP)/American Registry of Pathology (ARP) fascicle authors in partnership with Johns Hopkins Pathology, these topics and others of interest to general pathologists will be presented. This weekend update should be of interest to general surgical pathologists and pathology residents and fellows.
