Description:

A ticket is required for participation. Register online here.

This workshop will provide a systemic approach to indications for interpreting common findings on CXRs, review anatomy, and demonstrate which types of chest CT imaging is best for different disease states. The workshop will review detailed case studies of both CXRs and chest CT in which the workshop attendees are highly encouraged to work together to interpret the radiographic findings.
Common findings such as pneumonia, pulmonary edema, pulmonary emboli, interstitial lung disease, bronchiectasis, and lung cancer screening will be reviewed. This workshop will be both lecture-based and hands-on. Target audience includes students, new graduates looking to expand their radiographic knowledge, and those working in hospital medicine, urgent care/emergency medicine, and primary care.
 

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
⦁ Review chest anatomy and location on chest radiography, including identification of radiographic landmarks on chest x-ray and CT of the chest
⦁ Recognize identifiers of poor-quality films and demonstrate proper placement of chest tubes, central venous catheters, and endotracheal tubes on CXRs
⦁ Review the types and indications for ordering certain chest radiography such as high-resolution CT and CT pulmonary angiogram
⦁ Outline a systemic approach for interpreting CXRs using a step-by-step approach
⦁ Recognize common ideas states of CXR and CT chest, such as pneumonia, pleural effusions, edema, pulmonary fibrosis, bronchiectasis, and pneumothorax, and learn to properly describe these findings
