CSTR 2021 – Focus on Lung Screening – Wednesday April 28 (11:00-15:15 EDT)
The Canadian Society of Thoracic Radiology (CSTR) has designed a dynamic and comprehensive program with live accredited sessions and on-demand content:
- Diffuse Lung Disease (11:00 – 13:00 EDT)
This session will review the updates to and integration of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) diagnostic guidelines, discuss the role and limitations of high-resolution CT of the chest in the diagnosis of fibrotic interstitial lung disease, clinical challenges in the diagnosis and management of IPF, an in-depth exploration of vaping-associated lung disease, fatty-airways disease and a detailed review of the imaging features of COVID-19 pneumonia.
Featuring: Drs. Cameron Hague, Carolina Souza, Deborah Assayag, Daria Manos, and Jana Taylor.
- Lung Cancer Screening (13:15 – 15:15 EDT)
This session will provide an overview of lung cancer screening in the United States, various European screening efforts, the Alberta Lung Cancer Screening Pilot Study, the Cancer Care Ontario pilot, and discuss multiple issues regarding how to better implement lung cancer screening and identify important areas of research. The session will conclude with an exciting panel discussion with leaders in low-dose CT for lung cancer screening.
Featuring: Drs. Caroline Chiles (STR President), Mathias Prokop (ESTI Representative), Mike Bristow, Heidi Schmidt, and Martin Tammemagi.

The Canadian Society of Pediatric Radiology (CanSPR) presents one session:
- Pediatric Emergencies for the General Radiologist – Saturday, May 1 (11:00-12:30 EDT)
This session includes case-based presentations on pediatric chest with a special focus on how the radiological presentation on thoracic emergencies varies with patient age, illustration of common abdominal emergencies in children, and neurological emergencies with an emphasis on differential diagnosis and most appropriate imaging modality.
Featuring: Drs. Katya Rozovsky, Govind Chavhan, and Elka Miller.
