One in fifty people in the U.S. has an unruptured brain aneurysm, and one ruptures every 18 minutes. Despite low frequency, brain aneurysms are high in mortality, because the lack of a timely diagnosis often leads to death. Complicating matters more, many of the symptoms are associated with other less dangerous conditions, such as influenza or stress. This session will describe the importance of early detection, since brain aneurysms are treatable via proper identification, and will highlight risk factors and populations who are most vulnerable. Faculty will also review treatment options for clinicians to recognize or use in practice.
Hip, knee, and back pain are common complaints in the outpatient setting. It is critical for primary care providers to develop an evidence-based systematic approach to address these complaints. This presentation will improve familiarity with anatomy of the hip, knee, and back through a case-based approach. Learners will be able to generate differential diagnoses for pain in the aforementioned regions and determine appropriate imaging studies using ACR Appropriateness Criteria. The learner will be able to identify cases that require subspecialty care.
In this session, the speaker will discuss some challenging diagnostic cases that primary care practitioners may face in their practice. These cases will feature interpretation of laboratory and imaging studies as well as encounters with rare diseases and conditions. You will learn which aspects of the history and physical exam are most useful to establish certain diagnoses, increase your awareness of certain uncommon but “can’t miss” diagnoses, and become familiar with clinical decision aids that improve diagnostic accuracy for certain common diagnoses.

You’ll also walk away from this session with a firm grasp of the role incretins play in the pathophysiology of T2DM, obesity, and other metabolic conditions and the latest clinical trial evidence behind incretin-based agents.
