The UCLA Radiology Interstitial Lung Disease & COPD Workshop is designed to bring together clinicians and radiologists with expertise in COPD and interstitial lung disease (ILD) and assess the current practice of using quantitative data from imaging in clinical practice and research. The program will start by describing the current description and classification of ILD and provide the foundation for a discussion of the various quantitative parameters used and needed in clinical practice and research. The disease paradigms for this discussion by our panel of pulmonologists will include ILD, COPD, and Pulmonary Hypertension. Thereafter, the program will shift to a discussion on the quantitative parameters used in imaging in clinical trials and the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning on clinical and research reports. Finally, the quantitative diagnostic report currently being used by a select group of clinicians will be unveiled to the audience and the potential future of diagnostic reports will be discussed. This activity is designed to be an open forum workshop and we hope we can start a dialogue of what matters most to physicians and how we can prepare radiology reports to remain simple yet contain all the data needed for clinical decision making.

Target Audience

This workshop is targeted at clinical teams which include pulmonologists, rheumatologists, internists, family practitioners, and radiologists, in particular cardiothoracic radiologists. This course is also targeted at faculty and staff who develop radiology reports and data, including imaging computer scientists, statisticians, as well as image and data analysts.

General Information

The UCLA Radiology Interstitial Lung Disease & COPD Workshop will also be available through a live virtual meeting web platform.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 3.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The California State Board of Registered Nursing accepts courses approved by the AMA for category 1 credit as meeting the continuing education requirements for license renewal. Nurses from states other than California should inquire with their local State Board for specific continuing education policies.

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
