We are pleased to offer Self-Assessment Modules which meet the American Board of Radiology’s criteria for self-assessment activities in the ABR Maintenance of Certification Program.


This course has been designed for the radiologist interested in gaining a greater knowledge and understanding of advances in diagnostic imaging, specifically implementing a multidisciplinary approach to education via a combination of experts from Duke’s Divisions of Abdominal Imaging, Cardiothoracic Imaging, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Pediatric Imaging and Neuroradiology.


At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify and discuss the latest modalities and techniques being used in the field of Diagnostic Radiology.
  • Discuss differential diagnoses of common disease processes as they are seen on radiologic images.
  • Demonstrate compliance with various governing agencies to sustain accreditation, licensing and board certificate requirements.

In support of improving patient care, Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education & Professional Development is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), to provide continuing education for the health care team.
