To discuss characteristic pathologic and radiologic correlates of tumor invasiveness in lung adenocarcinoma and their associated clinical implications.
To describe current advances in cancer biology related to the acquisition of tumor invasion and metastasis.
To identify areas for further research which have clinical impact for prognostication and treatment of early stage lung cancer.
Overall Goals and Objectives:
Following this activity, a participant should be able to:
1. Recognize recent advances and developments in Pulmonary Medicine & Critical Care and translate into clinical practice
2. Integrate perspectives of multiple disciplines into decision-making on behalf of patients through structured plans for patient care.
3. Develop areas for future research and discuss appropriate methods to address these needs.
4. Summarize and continually improve communications as a team, caring for Pulmonary/Critical Care patients.
PowerPoint slides only, no audio.
