Activity 1: Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis: The Role of Radiology in Accurate and Timely Diagnosis

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to increase knowledge and competence of pulmonologists and other healthcare providers in identifying and treating patients with IPF.

Target Audience
The intended audience for this educational initiative is radiologists and other clinicians who manage patients with IPF.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Integrate current guideline-based high-resolution computed tomography patterns when making the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • Identify clinical and imaging conditions that mimic the usual interstitial pneumonia pattern in high-resolution CT scans
  • Discuss how multidisciplinary discussion improves accuracy and confidence in making the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

 

Activity 2: Overcoming Barriers to Timely Diagnosis and Classification of Interstitial Lung Disease: Considerations for Radiologists

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge and competence of Radiologists in timely in accurate diagnosis of ILD including identification, referral, and follow-up of ILA, as well as radiologic patterns consistent with fibrosis ILDs and importance of MDD in the diagnosis and classification of ILD.

Target Audience
This educational initiative is intended for community- and academic-based Radiologists other healthcare providers who care for patients with or at risk for Interstitial Lung Disease (ILD).

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Construct a follow-up and referral plan for identified ILA in the context of patient specific characteristics
  • Identify clinical and imaging patterns used in the diagnosis and classify ILD
  • Integrate current guideline-based HRCT patterns necessary for the diagnosis of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF)
  • Discuss how MDD improves accuracy and confidence in making the diagnosis and classification of ILD
