Led by The Royal College of Radiologists and the Royal Brompton Hospital, and supported by the Society of Radiologists in Training, this two-day course in thoracic imaging is intended for radiologists at all levels of seniority. The format of the event and topics covered will be of value not only to junior radiologists preparing for the FRCR Part II examination but also to more senior radiologists wishing to re-visit and revise aspects of thoracic imaging.

Sessions will cover the fundamentals of thoracic anatomy, imaging techniques and the key radiological signs. There will be a systematic review of all major disease categories including lung cancer, interstitial lung diseases, pleural disorders and vascular disease.

Meeting organiser: Professor Sujal Desai
