Walker to chair case-based review course for national radiology conference

The American Roentgen Ray Society has honored Chris Walker, M.D., assistant professor of radiology. He will serve as the thoracic imaging section chair for the organization’s case-based review course at next spring’s 2016 national meeting in Los Angeles.

The course provides diagnostic imaging cases in 11 subspecialties that help prepare residents for upcoming exams and private practice. It also helps practicing radiologists refine their skills with an in-depth approach to learning.

In addition to his administrative role as section chair, Walker will facilitate a case review focused on pulmonary fibrosis. He was selected to lead a chest imaging case review on pleura/diaphragm in 2014.

The society is the oldest radiology society in the world and the organization’s annual meeting is the second-largest radiology meeting each year. School of Medicine professor of radiology and a past president of the society, Melissa Rosado de Christenson, M.D., initiated the case-based review courses at the national meetings.
