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.
