Program Description: 

Imaging and management of pulmonary disease is challenging and, at times, difficult.  This educational activity is designed to provide a platform for discussion regarding approaches to improve the diagnosis and treatment of chest diseases such as interstitial lung diseases and infection diseases with special focus on the use of chest radiology.  It is an interactive conference that involves radiologists, pulmonary and critical care physicians and other specialists who care for patients with thoracic diseases.  These are case-based presentations, discussions followed by review of pertinent medical literature.  When appropriate, a lung pathologist is invited as well.


Key Words: 

  • Pulmonary
  • imaging
  • Interstitial
Target audience:

Learning objectives: 
Participants who engage in this educational intervention will be able to:

  • Correlate clinical symptoms and course of patient’s disease with chest radiologic findings.
  • Gain evidence-based knowledge on the radiologic presentation, diagnosis and management of the cases presented through a problem-focused review of pertinent medical literature.
  • Update the radiologists on the information required for various disease work ups and provide follow ups for cases they have evaluated.
  • Provide interaction and consultation on difficult clinical cases being evaluated currently.
  • Interstitial lung disease presents many diagnostic difficulties for the radiologist, pulmonologist and pathology. 
  • Studies have shown that joint conferences lead to better patient diagnosis.
