Chest Imaging

November 3 – 5, 2014

Marriott Long Wharf
Boston, MA

field


COURSE DESCRIPTION

The rapidly expanding subspecialty of Thoracic Radiology creates a challenge for physicians to stay current. The three-day chest course will include symposia dedicated to the multi-disciplinary assessment and management of lung cancer, lung cancer screening, the approach to HRCT and interstitial lung diseases and acute cardiothoracic imaging. New modalities including PET-CT, MRI, Dual energy CT and dose reduction strategies will be presented.

Chest Radiology is no longer a field where a chest x-ray is the sole modality of imaging. The specialty is now much more comprehensive and includes Computed Tomography, PET-CT Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Interventional procedures. Interventional work includes obtaining adequate tissue for molecular analysis in the growing field of personalized medicine for lung cancer. The Radiologist's role is expanding significantly in these areas and there is increasing need to work effectively in a multi-disciplinary team to optimize patient management and outcome. The recent guidelines on Lung cancer screening will increase demand and utilization of thoracic CT.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the updated classification and staging algorithm of lung cancer
  • Interact more effectively with other physicians involved in lung cancer management
  • Evaluate HRCT examinations using a structured anatomical approach
  • Use CT appropriately in the evaluation of acute chest pain
  • Avoid pitfalls in the interpretation of PET-CT in the thorax
  • Apply new imaging parameters on scanners in order to dramatically reduce radiation dose in all patients

TARGET AUDIENCE

The course is directed to radiologists, pulmonologists, oncologists, thoracic surgeons, and other specialties whose practice includes the use of imaging and intervention in the chest.

ACCREDITATION

The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 22.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 22.5 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
