Overview

Brochure

Developed in conjunction with the Society of Thoracic Radiology and the Fleischner Society.

This three-day course, led by Course Directors David Naidich, MD, David Lynch, MB, ChB, and Jeffrey Kanne, MD, 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 related cases. Faculty will provide direct supervision and assistance with hands-on interpretation. The integration of clinical, radiologic, and pathologic information will also be discussed.

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 Guideline for the Performance of High-Resolution Computed Tomography (HRCT) of the Lungs in Adults.

I have attended many CME programs during the last 20 years. This program ranks among the very best that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. The information that I have learned in the last 3 days will radically change my practice patterns (for the better).

I am truly impressed at how professional and accommodating the staff has been. This was not a cheap educational experience but it was well worth the time and money invested. I understand why so many of the radiologists here were repeat customers.
