T4T by Jonathan Chung: ARRS 2013

The American Roentgen Ray Society (ARRS) meeting will take place between April 14th and 19th this year in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.  Though not as large as the annual RSNA meeting, as a resident, it is still possible to become overwhelmed.  I found that by planning ahead, you will feel more prepared and get more out of the meeting.  ARRS has summarized its specialty tracks, categorical course: Pitfalls in Clinical Imaging, Case-Based Imaging Review Course, and resident track on its website.


Here are some highlights I think residents and fellows would find interesting if you want to learn more about cardiopulmonary imaging:
