Nearly 300 attendees, including a significant number from overseas, will take part in the first Radiologic-Pathology Correlation Course presented by the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP).
The course marks the ransition from the now ended Armed Forces Institute of Pathology (AFIP) course to the AIRP course, sponsored by the American College of Radiology.
The four-week radiologic pathology course is designed to aid medical residents in their endeavors to achieve excellence in radiology by employing radiologic-pathologic correlation in the identification of disease. Previously, more than 90 percent of all post-MD radiology residents had attended AFIP at some point during their residency, according to AIRP. The focus of the training, now provided by AIRP, is to emphasize the correlation between human pathology and the medical images interpreted by radiologists.
