• Release date: 1/1/2023
• Jointly provided by Partners for Advancing Clinical Education (PACE) and CME Science

Educational Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should better be able to:
• Use contemporary imaging techniques and protocols to accurately diagnose airway disease, lung infection, & mediastinal masses.
• Describe thoracic radiologic procedures for clinical cancer management.
• Outline CT protocols and techniques for improved clinical diagnosis of diseases of the cardiovascular system.
• Integrate information presented in this course into efforts to improve the imaging skills of the participants.

Target Audience
This course is intended for Practicing Radiologists and Radiologic Nurses, Physician Assistants, Technologists, Scientists, Residents, Fellows and others who are interested in current techniques and applications for chest imaging.
