Description

The fellowship is an introduction to the field of HRCT of the lung through an interactive program that includes a combination of lectures, reporting and group case discussion.

We will discuss pattern recognition and interstitial lung diseases with extra focus on fibrotic lung diseases.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases from the TMC academy teaching file. After the individual case readings there will be an additional lecture followed by a ‘Questions and Answers’ session.

All sessions are run through an online conference software to ensure full interactivity (sessions will also be recorded).
