Date Posted: Friday, July 15, 2016

Karin Dill, MD, Associate Professor and Division Chief for Cardio-Thoracic Imaging has been invited to become a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal Chest. The journal was selected by the independent Special Libraries Association as one of the 100 most influential journals, and the only respiratory journal, in Medicine and Biology over the past 100 years, and being identified in an independent survey of practicing pulmonologists as the most important clinical journal.

Chest Journal

Dr. Dill is also a member of the CAD-RADS Writing Group for the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.

Three medical professional societies jointly released a new reporting system to standardize reporting of patients undergoing coronary computed tomography angiography (coronary CTA). Termed CAD-RADSTM  (Coronary Artery Disease Reporting and Data System), this system will bring consistency to reporting of coronary CTA diagnostic information for millions of patients worldwide.
Unlike many other major disease areas, until now no standardized system has existed to classify and report patient data for CT scans of coronary artery disease. CAD-RADS fulfills that long-sought goal of the radiology, cardiology and industry communities.

The societies are committed to the widest possible distribution of CAD-RADS to the practice community. The document will be published online in the Journal of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, the Journal of the American College of Radiology® (JACR) and JACC Cardiovascular Imaging.
