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.
