Course information

This course is aimed at residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists interested in Chest Imaging. It is strictly adhered to Level II of the European Training Curriculum and is designed to provide the essentials of current state-of the-art imaging, patterns of disease, diagnostic algorithms and their appropriateness, required quality and limitations in chest trauma, COVID-pneumonia, pulmonary nodules, airway disease, diffuse parenchymal disease as well as diseases of the great thoracic vessels. The course includes six topics consisting of 40 minutes of theory and case presentations followed by a live Q&A section after each session for interaction with the faculty members. A self-assessment test with multiple-choice questions for each lecture will be made available after the course and will round-off the exercise.
