Practical Thoracic Imaging Online Learning Forum

This program is designed for general radiologists, thoracic radiologists, pulmonologists and cardiologists, as well as, ancillary health care professionals who desire an affordable update on recent imaging advances and the use of imaging as an aid to clinical patient management for diseases of the chest.

PRACTICAL THORACIC IMAGING courses are designed as a comprehensive imaging review of diseases that affect the chest, including the heart. Experienced faculty has been selected to cover the subject material that emphasizes their approach to solving clinically relevant problems involving the chest. Review of traditional imaging as well as the benefits and caveats of newer imaging techniques will be presented.
