CME COURSES
MRI, Targeted Biopsy, Intervention and Biomarkers in Prostate Cancer Management
September 09, 2016 to September 10, 2016
UCLA Meyer & Renee Luskin Conference Center
UCLA Campus
Los Angeles, California
Prostate cancer is the second most common solid organ malignancy diagnosed in men. Unlike other solid organ malignancies, the challenge in prostate cancer is to confidently identify men with moderate and high grade cancers who would most benefit from aggressive therapy. Uniquely among solid organ cancers, imaging has not been a traditional part of the workup of prostate cancer, which has relied instead on transrectal US-guided template biopsy. MR imaging has emerged as the best imaging modality to detect, grade and stage prostate cancer, especially with the introduction of PI-RADS v2. This unique one-and-a-half-day course will provide a comprehensive overview of the utility of multiparametric MR imaging for prostate cancer diagnosis. We will discuss all relevant MR imaging parameters for prostate cancer (T2, perfusion, diffusion, and spectroscopy) as well as new standardized MR reporting algorithms for prostate cancer. In conjunction with the UCLA Departments of Urology, Pathology, Nuclear Medicine, and Radiation Oncology and other world renowned speakers, we will review application of MR imaging in surgical planning for robotic prostatectomy, prostate biopsy planning, active surveillance and radiation planning. We will also discuss state-of-the-art MR targeted biopsy, focal therapy and emerging biomarkers.

21st Annual UCLA Pediatric Board Review Course
September 06, 2016 to September 11, 2016
Marriott Marina del Rey
Marina del Rey, California
The goal of this course is to provide a broad, but in-depth review of pediatrics for those preparing for the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) certification examination, those undergoing ABP re-certification, and pediatricians and family practitioners seeking an intensive refresher course in pediatrics.

The program is designed to maximize performance on the American Board of Pediatrics examination. The focus of the Board examination, historically, has been on diagnosis. Two key elements to making a successful diagnosis are pattern recognition and knowledge of links and associations. An appreciation of these elements is essential for maximal performance on the Board examination, and they are emphasized in this program.

6th International Symposium on Malignant Pleural Mesothelioma
September 24, 2016
UCLA Meyer and Renee Luskin Conference Center
Los Angeles, California
Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is an unusual cancer because it grows throughout the chest cavity as a diffuse process rather than a typical solid nodule or mass. Because of this unique characteristic, it has very specific treatment issues. MPM also is a rare tumor with less than 3,000 new cases annually, and therefore, most physicians, even pulmonologists and medical oncologists, typically only see these patients infrequently. Despite this, it is critical that all physicians involved in the care of MPM patients be familiar with the important issues in this disease and possess a thorough understanding regarding the tumor itself, its evaluation process, staging, treatment and the role of multidisciplinary management of these patients. This includes the role and extent of surgery as well as radiation, chemotherapy and newer targeted therapies and immunotherapy. Robert B. Cameron, MD, the course organizer and the Director of the UCLA Comprehensive Mesothelioma Program, has had over 30 years of experience with treating patients with MPM, including pleurectomy and decortication surgical procedures and a number of complementary adjuvant therapies with the goal of treating this deadly disease like a chronic illness, similar to hypertension and diabetes.

Taget Audience
  • Pulmonary physicians who are frequently involved in patient workups
  • Medical oncologists who are frequently involved in patient therapy
  • Mesothelioma experts who want to learn/share experiences about lung-sparing therapies
  • Patients, family, friends who desire to learn more about the disease
