HRCT for Practicing Radiologists - Saturday, March 6, 2021

This Saturday session on HRCT is directed toward radiologists who would like brush up on some key information for interpreting interstitial and diffuse lung disease in any practice setting. A practical approach will be presented and supplemented with case review. The goal is to identify and synthesize HRCT findings for development of a focused differential diagnosis. The course will review a spectrum of disease that will be most commonly encountered in clinical practice.

*Saturday programs included in general meeting registration

* In keeping with the STR Mission, “to advance cardiothoracic imaging in clinical application, education and research worldwide” the STR has aligned membership with global economics. The World Bank identifies nations as low, lower middle , upper middle and high income (the latter defined as gross national income per capita > $12,535/yr).  Individuals residing in nations in the first three income groups are eligible for a discounted STR yearly membership of $200 ($440 value). Qualifying countries can be found on the World Bank Link provided on the STR membership website also.

Also for this year, given the economic impact of COVID on these countries in particular, we are offering for individuals residing in these nations a discounted annual 2021 meeting fee of $350 ($545 value) . It is our hope that these changes in fees will help the STR welcome new members and meeting participants from around the globe.
