Thoracic Imaging - 2018

Society of Thoracic Radiology Clinical Update

Explore the Latest in Diagnosis, Management and More

Thoracic Imaging – 2018 covers a range of topics, including lung cancer screening, diffuse lung diseases, quantitative imaging, big data and deep learning, pulmonary infections, oncologic imaging and interventional management, evidence-based imaging and educational topics, cardiothoracic emergencies, and cardiovascular imaging. It will help you to better:

  • Recognize basic concepts in imaging interpretation including pitfalls, anatomic variants and frequently missed diagnoses
  • Discuss the role of imaging in the screening, diagnosis, evaluation and management of cardiac diseases, including those affecting coronary arteries and great vessels of the thorax
  • Describe current and emerging applications in radiography, CT, MR and PET
  • Apply a practical approach to the assessment and management of infectious diseases, mediastinal abnormalities and diffuse lung diseases
