Lung Cancer Screening: A Comprehensive Guide Online Course

Presented in cooperation with the Society of Thoracic Radiology

This Online Course will provide the education and training to improve your image interpretation skills as well as insight to developing a comprehensive lung cancer screening program.

Learning Outcomes and Modules

Upon completion of this program, you will be able to: provide a practical step by step framework for radiologists in broad practice settings to establish and manage a lung cancer screening program; interpret the epidemiology of lung cancer; recognize the protean imaging manifestations of lung cancer; become familiar with the findings of the National Lung Screening Trial and understand their impact on the current practice of lung cancer screening; acquire expertise in the detection and characterization of pulmonary nodules; obtain imaging protocols for low does lung cancer screening; review the essentials of establishing a lung cancer screening program; and apply Lung RADS™ to reporting of low dose lung cancer screening CT studies.
