ESOR for EDiR Webinars: Chest Imaging (part 2) - 2014 (106B)


Description
Video-based course (recorded 2014)

Speaker: José Vilar (Valencia, Spain)

"Thoracic imaging techniques"
Learning objectives:
• to understand the advantages and limitations of radiological techniques, e.g. chest radiography, computed tomography, PET-CT (and other nuclear medicine techniques), magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound
• to know the correct indications for these techniques in the investigation of lung disease
• to fully understand the concept of dose and dose reduction with regards to chest imaging using chest radiography, CT and PET-CT imaging

"Diffuse interstitial lung diseases"
Learning objectives:
• to learn about the spectrum of diffuse interstitial lung diseases (DILD) encountered in clinical practice
• to be able to identify and characterise the common signs and patterns of DILD at radiography, CT and MRI
• to appreciate the crucial diagnostic importance of predominant disease distribution (e.g. upper zone versus lower zone; central vs. peripheral vs. random vs. bronchocentric)
• to understand that atypical patterns of common DILDs (e.g. sarcoidosis, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) are often encountered in clinical practice
