Description

The purpose of this online chest radiology fellowship is give a comprehensive course in the diagnostic work up of lung cancer. This includes presentation of Fleischner Society and British Thoracic Society algorithms for work-up of solitary pulmonary lung nodules. In addition, the course will give hand on experience in the usage of TNM 8 classification of lung cancer. Finally, the course will introduce usage of spectral CT in the workup of lung cancer.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After and during the individual case readings there will be plenty of time for group discussion and Q&A with the expert mentor.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.
