April 6-9, 2020 — COURSE CANCELED

Earn up to 27.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits

Course Description
The depiction of disease processes by current imaging has advanced extensively in recent years. This exquisite identification of various abnormalities by cross-sectional imaging, particularly CT and MR, further emphasizes the need to understand the pathologic basis of disease as we are now often illustrating this correlation directly.

This course is designed to illustrate basic concepts and radiologicā€pathologic correlation in chest imaging in order to enhance practitioner knowledge and skills. Lack of understanding of the underlying pathology can lead to misinterpretation of radiologic images and the potential to overlook important complications such as a neoplastic recurrence.

Course Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to

  • Explain the importance of effective communication with Pathologists in the diagnosis of lesions.
  • Identify imaging characteristics of lesions involving the chest and cardiovascular system.
  • Illustrate how the underlying pathology of the lesion contributes to its imaging characteristics.
  • Describe those chest diseases in which radiologic imaging is key for accurate diagnosis.
