  2. 2. 2CARDIOVASCULAR & PULMONARY IMAGINGJanuary 27 – 29, 2013This course is a comprehensive review of cross-sectional imaging of the chest,covering the pulmonary, vascular and cardiac systems. The course will be useful asa review of thoracic imaging, as well as a guide for radiologists hoping to expand theirpractice to new areas. It will provide an update on a variety of established clinicalapplications, but will also touch on newer, cutting-edge technologies such as cardiacCT. A practical approach to these areas of emerging technology will be presentedso as to be useful to radiologists from all types of clinical practice. The course willfeature focused, 20-minute lectures to allow for the inclusion of more topics and tomaximize learning.Earn SAM Credit An opportunity for completion of a Self-Assessment Module willbe offered. “HRCT of the Lung” is pending approval by the American Board ofRadiology for 1 SAM credit and for meeting the criteria for self-assessment towardthe purpose of fulfilling requirements in the ABR Maintenance of CertificationProgram. SAM credits are required for radiologists certified since 2002.At the completion of this course, the attendee should be able to:1. Confidently interpret high-resolution CT scans of the lungs and provide focuseddifferential diagnoses;2. Describe a practical approach to the imaging of lung infections and pleuraldiseases;3. Recognize typical manifestations of acute and chronic aortic diseases;4. Describe the role of cross-sectional imaging in the evaluation of acquired heartdiseases;5.
