Lung Cancer II - TNM staging

5 Cases

Level II - General radiologist

2 EACCME CME Credits

Aimed at radiologists as well as medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pulmonologists, the diagnostic imaging in lung cancer simulation programme is a training activity that will help the specialist improve their clinical skills with regard to the interpretation and identification of images in the diagnosis, staging and response assessment of cases of lung cancer.

25.00 €

Description

This diagnostic imaging in lung cancer reporting module is aimed at radiologists, but also medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pulmonologists who are interested in improving their clinical skills with regard to the interpretation and identification of images in the diagnosis, staging and response assessment of cases of lung cancer, principally using CT. Some cases with PET or MRI will also be shown.

The simulator enables practice in a real environment, working on cases of lung tumours. It is a “learning by doing” type of learning that allows you to learn from your errors and successes when interpreting the images. At the end of each case, the user will receive the answers immediately with comments both in the structured report and in the images, with the aim of reinforcing the entire learning process.

The module contains 5 real anonymised cases selected by the mentor who prepared the content.

This is a CME-accredited activity by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.


Testimonials:

"The simulator is a brilliant way to learn or relearn how to approach a certain examination. It gives you the opportunity to practice, think logically through a case, and is very applicable to clinical work.”
Dr. Bryan Connolly, Specialist Radiologist, Unilabs Sweden (2021)

"I like everything and particularly the structured template which creates an algorithm of reporting”

How does it work?

The specialised radiologist mentor has carefully prepared a structured reporting template to help you report the cases, formatted in a fun clickable quiz format while you also view the cases in an web-based PACS-viewer on the right.

1. First, you should review the case images.

2. Then, you can begin the reporting template quiz (meanwhile still reviewing the images on the right)

3. After you submit your answers, the correct answers will appear and you will receive a score for your report.

4. Alongside the answers, you will also find helpful comments and learnings that the specialised radiologist mentor has left. There might also be arrows or markings on the images to help you see relevant findings.

5. If you score more than 66%, you have passed the module and can download your CME Certificate. If you did not pass, you can reset the module and try again.

You can save the module whenever you want and come back to it later, giving you flexibility to practice on your own time.
