This live online course will feature three days of didactic lectures and case discussions including topics such as interstitial and fibrotic lung disease, advanced CT/MRI applications in chest imaging, COVID and MIS-C and EVALI! Following this course, participants will understand basic and advanced techniques, along with new technologies, in pediatric chest imaging, and will be able to recognize and apply these techniques for advanced diagnosis and improved management.       



This course will be recorded and converted into an on-demand activity later this year. All registrants for the live online course will also have access to the recordings at no additional cost.
