ESOR Course on Chest Radiology | August 24-26, 2023

Course information

This course aims to familiarise radiologists with cutting-edge developments in chest radiology. These one-day courses address the broad spectrum of different pulmonary diseases and the respective findings in chest radiology focusing on precise and accurate analysis of patterns, as well as use of classifications and management guidelines. The range of topics covers the ever-challenging area of pulmonary nodules, in particular subsolid ones, leading to screening and staging of lung cancer, infectious and non-infectious inflammatory lung diseases, such as pneumonias, tuberculosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and finally pulmonary embolism. The courses focus on the clinical needs, technical solutions and appropriate application of imaging and patterns in diagnosis, decision-making and management of these disease entities. A unique group of European and Brazilian faculty members, well known for their experience in chest radiology, offers top quality didactic lectures sharing their expertise and best cases. The combination of didactic lectures with interactive workshops guarantees the high educational value of this teaching programme.

Learning objectives

  • to become familiar with the latest advances in the management of pulmonary nodules, in particular subsolid ones, as well as screening and staging of lung cancer
  • to understand the diagnostic benefits of the pattern approach in the diagnosis of inflammatory lung disease, such as bacterial, viral and fungal pneumonia, tuberculosis, hypersensitivity pneumonitis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis
  • to consolidate knowledge about the current best practice in the radiology-based diagnosis and management of pulmonary embolism
