High-Resolution Chest CT

Online Course Package with Book

This course will provide a systematic review of interstitial lung disease (ILD) CT imaging, led by thoracic radiologists as well as renowned specialists in pulmonary medicine and thoracic surgery. Lectures will include reviews of clinical presentations of ILD, considerations for imaging referrals, basics of lung biopsy for pathologic correlation, the use of antifibrotic medications, and patient selection and workup for lung transplantation. Gain valuable insights into pitfalls in radiology diagnosis of ILD and receive expert guidance to avoid misdiagnosis.
