April 7, 2016 — Radiologists can get the right stuff to build effective multidisciplinary teams and to advance the quality and effectiveness of lung cancer screening programs at ACR 2016 — The Crossroads of Radiology.

“It’s been more than a year since Medicare’s final decision to cover computed tomography (CT) lung cancer screening for seniors at high-risk for lung cancer. While insurance reimbursement has speeded expansion of lung cancer screening programs in the United States, there’s much that can be learned to develop effective multidisciplinary teams and maximize the quality and effectiveness of those programs,” said Cheri Canon, M.D., FACR, chair of the meeting’s Program Committee. “ACR 2016 attendees get this needed information, along with critical details on how to incorporate information technology solutions,” she added.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) annual meeting provides the following sessions, developed in conjunction with the Fleischner Society and the Society of Thoracic Radiology:

 

  • Developing an Effective Lung Cancer Screening Team; and
  • Advancing the Practice of Lung Cancer Screening.

Expert presenters include Phillip Boiselle, M.D.; Francine L. Jacobson, M.D., MPH; Jeffrey P. Kanne, M.D.; Ella Kazerooni, M.D., MS, FACR, FSCBTMR; Carla Lamb, M.D.; Roger Luckmann, M.D., MPH, MPH; Andrea McKee, M.D.; Shawn Regis, Ph.D.; Geoffrey Rubin, MBA, M.D., FACR; Jo-Anne O. Shepard, M.D.; and Eliot Siegel, M.D., FACR.

ACR’s annual all-member meeting will be held May 15–19 in Washington, D.C.
