March 15, 2012 -- The American College of Radiology (ACR) Education Center announced it is offering a course on high-resolution CT of the chest.
The course will be held on April 20-22 in Reston, VA, and will be led by chest imaging experts from the Fleischner Society, ACR said. The course is intended to provide practicing radiologists with the skills and understanding necessary to interpret high-resolution CT of the chest in diffuse infiltrative lung diseases.
Participants will receive lectures on specific aspects of high-resolution CT combined with the opportunity for hands-on interpretation of nearly 200 cases on their own PACS workstations, according to ACR.
Those who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate of proficiency in compliance with ACR practice guidelines for interpreting high-resolution CT, the organization said.
