    What content is available for CME?

    Over the course of the meeting, physicians have the ability to earn up to 81.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for live participation in Refresher Courses, Plenary Sessions, Multisession Courses, Series Courses, Scientific Sessions and correctly diagnosing the unknown Cases of the Day. CME credit is awarded for full participation in the live sessions for an hour-for-hour basis. To receive credit, you must attend the entire session. Correct diagnosis of Cases of the Day offers .50 credit each. Note:  No credit is available for viewing the on-demand sessions, as there is no opportunity for the audience to interact with faculty members and get their questions answered. 

    How do I claim CME credit? 

    You will document your attendance by evaluating your courses and sessions and claim your credits online. A link will be available to you at the conclusion of each session for which you participate. You are able to evaluate the live session you attended and claim credit through Friday, December 13. Once you have evaluated all courses, you can print your CME certificate. For RSNA members, your credits are automatically added to the RSNA CME Repository.
