Meeting Brochure

Course Description
The course is designed for radiologists and other physicians with an interest in chest and cardiac imaging. Thoracic Imaging 2000 is the 18th Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course of the Society of Thoracic Radiology. The meeting will feature internationally recognized experts in thoracic imaging and related clinical disciplines and will include the following:

Dedicated Symposia on:
Lung Cancer Screening and Staging Conventional Radiography
Infiltrative Lung Disease Cardiovascular Imaging
Infectious Lung Disease Imaging in the 21 st Century
Additional topics such as pediatric chest disorders, AIDS, and diseases of the airways will be included.
Scientific Sessions and Poster Presentations: Presentation of original scientific investigations in thoracic imaging, including a session dedicated to award-winning papers.
Expert Film Panel session on "How I Do It" that provides the expert's approach to the differential diagnosis of unknown cases.
Thirty-six small-group workshops by experts in pediatric and adult pulmonary and cardiovascular imaging.

Course Objectives
At the completion of the course, the attendee will be able to (1) describe the technical and practical applications of digital imaging; (2) summarize PACS (picture archiving and communication systems), helical and high-resolution chest computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of thoracic diseases; (3) appraise the role of imaging in the diagnosis of diffuse lung disease, thoracic trauma, airway disease, lung cancer, and pulmonary vascular disease; (4) state the technique of CT angiography, three-dimensional display of volumetric CT data, interventional techniques, and digital chest radiography; and (5) apply these advances in his or her practice.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essentials and Standards of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the Radiological Society of North America and the Society of Thoracic Radiology. The Radiological Society of North America is accredited by the ACCME to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians. The Radiological Society of North America designates this continuing medical education activity for a maximum of 33.5 hours in Category I credit toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award. Each physician should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Target Audience
This meeting is designed for general diagnostic radiologists, chest radiologists, cardiac radiologists, pulmonologists, internists, family physicians, thoracic surgeons, and chest-oriented residents and fellows.
