Description

The purpose of this online chest radiology fellowship is to give a comprehensive course in the diagnostic work-up of lung cancer. This includes the presentation of Fleischner Society and British Thoracic Society algorithms for the work-up of solitary pulmonary lung nodules. In addition, the course will give hands-on experience in the usage of TNM 8 classification of lung cancer. Finally, the course will introduce the 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. View the schedule and topics - full agenda here.

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

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