Essentials of Radiology: A Mayo Clinic Review is designed for practicing radiologists and upper-level residents who desire a comprehensive and concise review of diagnostic radiology and its subspecialty areas. The course emphasizes a practical approach to imaging that is applicable to radiologists throughout their careers. Mayo Clinic Department of Radiology experts will conduct a series of didactic lectures. A mobile application for both Android and iOS (Apple) mobile users will be provided to attendees one week prior to the course.
