Activity Summary

Required reading for all learners: Implicit Bias impacts patient outcomes

This interactive session highlights imaging modalities of the chest utilizing case studies with CXRs, CT chest and lung point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) images. Participants are challenged to use diagnostic reasoning skills to decide what type of imaging study would best establish a diagnosis, and then interpret those images as they relate to pathophysiologic conditions of the chest.


  • Describe indications for CXR, CT chest and lung POCUS.
  • Apply diagnostic reasoning skills to determine which chest image modality would best help formulate a differential diagnosis.
  • Identify CXR, CT chest and lung POCUS images associated with pathophysiologic conditions of the chest.
