CHEST IMAGING | Online | May 4, 2022

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, diagnostic algorithms and their appropriateness, in pulmonary hypertension, nodular and fibrotic lung diseases, bronchiectasis and pleural neoplasms, as well as relevant information related to anatomical variations and congenital anomalies diagnosed in adulthood, highlighting those to identify before thoracic surgery. 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.

Learning objectives

  • to learn about the role of CT in the positive and differential diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension
