Level II - General radiologist

12 EACCME CME Credits

Let us notify you for next time


Join us in Barcelona on our next edition of HRCT and Interstitial Lung Diseases Fellowship in October 2023, mentored by Dr. Ahlfors & Prof. Brillet.

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

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

Each session includes several short lectures following which the attendee will have the opportunity to practise on anonymised real-life cases cases selected from the TMC Academy teaching file archive. These cases will be reviewed during a group case discussion session with a “Question & Answer” session concluding each training day.

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.

Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.


“Excellent fellowship making the complex tangle of HR-CT patterns both accessible and fun to engage with. The lecturer Fredrik Ahlfors is a gifted teacher with a wealth of clinical radiological experience, who really stands out in his ability to teach this complex material. The addition of live case-readings was particularly valuable, as they allowed him to demonstrate how a dogmatic approach to HR-CT cannot withstand contact with the messy realities of daily clinical practice, and to teach decision strategies that help you deal with it.”
Dr. Stan Buckens - Dutch radiologist (Fellow, May 2023)

Well-structured fellowship, which provides the radiologists with a useful algorithm for the diagnosis of ILD. Many cases are provided and there is opportunity for discussion. Dr Alhfors has a unique way of making ILD diagnosis look easy. Highly recommended course, after which the radiologist can report confidently most HRCT cases.”
Dr. Andreas Karatzas (Fellow, May 2023)

"The algorithm presented by Fredrik during the course and in his book will be a lot of help, probably during my entire career.”
Miguel Ochoa Figueroa, MD, PhD. Nuclear Medicine Consultant, Linköping University Hospital, Sweden (Fellow, March 2021)
