Session Description:

Early detection of VOD/SOS and prompt initiation of treatment are critical to optimize patient management. The strategic implementation of various imaging modalities could help predict the risk of VOD/SOS, facilitate and confirm a diagnosis, and monitor progression before and after treatment. Given the significant role radiologist play in the diagnosis as well as treatment monitoring of patients with VOD/SOS, it is important for radiologists to understand not just the evolving diagnostic criteria and imaging modalities but also the underlying pathophysiology of VOD/SOS as well as currently available therapies.

Exploring the Role of Radiologists in Diagnosis and Monitoring of VOD/SOS: An Illustrative Case Discussion is a virtual symposium that mainly uses clinical case discussions to provide insights from experts on important topics such as updates on recent practice-changing guidelines and evidence in diagnosing and monitoring VOD/SOS through multidisciplinary care with a radiologist. The agenda will utilize a case-based educational design that covers updates for multidisciplinary teams, applying evidence across the continuum.

The Importance of Early Recognition of ILDs

THIS ACTIVITY IS SUPPORTED BY AN INDEPENDENT EDUCATIONAL GRANT FROM BOEHRINGER INGELHEIM PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.
This CME activity is jointly provided by PVI, PeerView Institute for Medical Education.

PRESENTED BY:
Chair:
Brett Elicker, MD
Clinical Professor of Radiology
Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging
University of California
San Francisco, California


Faculty:
Mary M. Salvatore, MD
Associate Professor of Radiology
Columbia University Irving Medical Center

Joshua J. Solomon, MD
Associate Professor of Medicine
Autoimmune Lung Center and Interstitial Lung Disease Program
National Jewish Health
Denver, Colorado


Session Description:

Optimal treatment of interstitial lung diseases (ILDs)—including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), systemic sclerosis–associated ILD (SSc-ILD), and chronic fibrosing ILD (CF-ILD)—relies on early recognition and accurate diagnosis. High-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) and a familiarity with the usual appearances of these conditions is necessary for a timely diagnosis. However, ILD presentation is often heterogeneous and a multidisciplinary consensus is often essential.

For this live web broadcast, PeerView has assembled a panel of experts to guide clinicians towards effectively identifying and diagnosing these interstitial lung disorders. The faculty will describe signs and symptoms of ILDs—including IPF, SSc-ILD, and CF-ILD— and how to interpret radiographic patterns on HRCT to facilitate an accurate diagnosis. They will also discuss the importance of the multidisciplinary team and share experiences and lessons from their own practices to offer practical strategies.
