This comprehensive review course in Thoracic Imaging covers the latest imaging methodologies and diagnostic techniques, laying special emphasis on CT and PET.

A Comprehensive Review of Thoracic Imaging

This CME is a broad and diverse review of cross-sectional imaging of the chest. UCSF Thoracic Imaging includes case-based lectures on topics like cardiovascular imaging, pulmonary imaging, lung cancer screening, typical and atypical appearances of lung cancer, and practical applications of lung cancer staging, etc. It will help you to:

  • Recognize the typical manifestations of acute and chronic aortic syndromes
  • Understand the role of CT and PET scans in the evaluation and staging of lung malignancies
  • Describe a pragmatic approach to the assessment of lung infections
  • Illustrate the role of cross-sectional imaging in the assessment of pulmonary embolism
  • Differentiate between benign and malignant lung nodules, using CT and PET scans
