Last updated 20 February 2009

Course Description:
This course will cover hot topics involving new techniques, controversial clinical diseases, and updated protocols that are encountered with increasing frequency in daily clinical practice.  The purpose of this symposium is to get to the bottom line: What is useful and what is not on clinical practice.  Attendees will bring home important information to help their clinical practices.  The expert speakers will draw clear and straightforward conclusions.  Each section will end with a consice summary, and sufficient time will be provided for audience interaction.

It is the intention of the organizers that this cuorse cover the most current questions and controversial areas, and include the most up-to-date information available.  Therefore, the final selection of subjects and speakers for the Hot Topics Course is not made until a date much later than for the other courses at the meeting, and at the time of publication we don't yet have the details.  Please check this page periodically for news of the course program.

Speakers: To be announced: Course speakers are selected on the basis of techniques and advances in the field emerging immediately prior to the meeting.
