Thoracic Imaging | B Reader Services

UW Department of Radiology offers review of chest radiographs or CT scans for the presence of occupational lung disease. Jeffrey P. Kanne, MD and Cristopher Meyer, MD, FACR are both thoracic radiologists with expertise in digital imaging, HRCT and interstitial lung disease and active NIOSH B reader certification. This certification is mandatory for physicians who classify chest radiographs for certain federal surveillance such as the NIOSH Coal Workers' X-ray Surveillance Program, the Asbestos Medical Surveillance Program, or industry-sponsored medical screening programs. All digital chest radiographs are interpreted on a dedicated high resolution workstation in compliance with 20 C.F.R. ยง 718.102 as amended.
