Accreditation

The Society of Thoracic Radiology is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Designation

The Society of Thoracic Radiology designates this enduring material for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits ™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Date of Original Release: TBD
Date Credits Expire: TBD

CME credit is awarded upon successful completion of the post-test and evaluation.

Learning Objectives

After viewing this program, participants will be better able to:

  • List basic concepts in imaging interpretation including pitfalls, anatomic variants and frequently missed diagnoses
  • Summarize the role of imaging in the assessment of cardiac disease, including diseases of the coronary arteries and great vessels of the thorax
  • Define the role of imaging in the screening, diagnosis, evaluation and management of patients with lung nodules
  • Explain the clinical and radiological evaluation and management strategies of a solitary pulmonary nodule, including the subsolid lesion
  • Illustrate current and emerging applications in radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, and positron emission tomography (PET) as they relate to the evaluation and management of thoracic diseases
  • Summarize a practical and multi-disciplinary approach to the assessment and management of diffuse lung diseases
  • Define current issues in infectious diseases of the chest
  • Discuss the current status of interventional procedures of the chest and spectrum of post-treatment changes in the thorax
  • Apply basic strategies for the interpretation and management of mediastinal abnormalities

Intended Audience

This course is designed for cardiothoracic radiologists, diagnostic radiologists, pulmonary medicine specialists, cardiothoracic surgeons, and fellows and residents with an interest in cardiothoracic imaging. Because of the prevalence of diseases of the chest in the general population, the course will also be of value to internists and family physicians.
