This three-day course is designed to provide practicing radiologists with the skills and understanding necessary to interpret high resolution CT of the chest in diffuse infiltrative lung diseases. During the program, participants will receive lectures on specific aspects of HRCT, interspersed with hands-on interpretation of cases related to those topics. Faculty will provide direct supervision and assistance with hands-on interpretation. The integration of clinical, radiologic, and pathologic information will also be discussed.
General radiologists and or non-thoracic imaging fellowship trained radiologists that are called upon to interpret HRCT studies in their practice.
At the conclusion of this course, particpants will be able to:
- Discuss the clinical indications and optimal approach for high resolution imaging of the lung parenchyma
- Utilize approach to CT differential diagnosis based on pattern and distribution of abnormality
- Know clinical features of the common interstitial lung diseases
- Understand the importance and mechanism of multidisciplinary consultation in diagnosis of interstitial lung disease
Please note: This course will offer the optional Workstation Introduction session at 7:00am on the first day of the course.
Attendees who complete a minimum of 100 cases will be awarded a Certificate of Proficiency stating they meet the Maintenance of Competence case requirement as specified in the ACR Practice Guidelines for the Performance of high-resolution Computer Tomography (HRCT) of the Lungs in Adults.
