The course programme will focus on elements from the level 3 chest radiology curriculum from the ESR. This includes diseases of the great vessels, infections, malignancies in pleura, mediastinum and lungs, interstitial lungs diseases, nodules management and lung cancer screening, intervention, trauma, PET-CT and MRI of the lungs.

The course is meant to help candidates interested in sitting for the ESTI diploma exam as well as serve as a solid repetition for experienced chest radiologists looking to refresh their knowledge in chest radiology.

This is the second time the ESTI is organising such a course and we are very excited about it. It has limited seats and there will be ample time for questions. We have added some case/quiz presentations, which will be interactive. We hope that this format will be educational and further the interest in chest/thoracic radiology in both, young and mature radiologists.
