General Information:

You need to make critical diagnoses and decisions and keep pace with rapid advances in the field. This course will provide you with practical approaches to diagnosis with a clear focus on the clinical information that’s so critical for quality patient management. A brief review of normal lung anatomy and common conditions will form the basis for discussions of more difficult and unusual diagnoses.


You will hear about new proposed classifications of lung adenocarcinomas, as well as guidelines for accurately separating lung carcinomas by histologic subtype; recent updates in interstitial lung disease classifications; the separation of benign and malignant mesothelial proliferations; the latest molecular diagnostic techniques for pulmonary and mesothelial tumors; and advances in understanding and diagnosing pulmonary infections and in diagnosing lymphoproliferative disorders in the lung.
