The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Imaging Categorical course will be virtual with both synchronous and asynchronous lectures.
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.
The course is designed to illustrate basic concepts and radiologic-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 a neoplastic recurrence.
