Thoracic study day: Old Friends and New Trends 2020

When: 
Friday 6 November 2020
Venue address: 
Cavendish Conference Centre, 22 Duchess Mews, LONDON, W1G 9DT
CPD credits: 
5

The last decade has seen major advances in the imaging of lung diseases and the next 10 years promise to be no different. The explosion of interest in artificial intelligence and machine learning in radiology promises much and the impact is already being felt. However, radiologists remain mindful of the age-old issues in respiratory medicine: after all, radiologists are nothing if not diagnosticians and in spite all the sophistication in imaging technology, diagnosis often remains a challenge. The Royal College of Radiologists Thoracic Study will cover aspects of diagnosis, present how imaging research is helping to unravel our understanding of complex lung diseases, discuss the role of radiology (and radiologists) in screening for lung cancer and review the prospects for radiology-guided interventions in the chest.
