Technical requirements for LCS: How to perform the acquisition (dose, slice thickness), How to read the scans
Annemiek Snoeckx, Edegem/BE

Description
Webinar 2 discusses the technical requirements for low-dose CT for lung cancer screening. Following items will be discussed: the importance of low radiation dose for screening, radiation dose in some of the large lung cancer screening trials, volumetric measurement, technical standards for lung cancer screening as proposed by ESTI, role of the radiologist, how LCS scans should be read.

Learning objectives
After listening to the webinar, you will

– have gained insight in the importance of low dose CT in lung cancer screening
– have learned about the radiation dose in some of the large lung cancer screening trials
– be updated with the technical standards for lung cancer screening as proposed by ESTI
– be informed on how lung cancer screening scans should be read
– have gained insight about the latest evidence on radiation dose in LCS

Solid nodule morphological evaluation: How to recognise obviously benign/malignant nodules, how to recognise intrapulmonary lymph nodes, pitfalls
Anand Devaraj, London/UK

Description:
This webinar will illustrate and discuss the crucial morphological features of solid lung nodules that help differentiate benign and malignant nodules and how they impact on management in screening.

Learning objectives:
– Understand that lung nodule management is determined mainly by nodule size and morphology
– Learn the key features of benign intrapulmonary lymph nodes
– Understand the appearances and management of inflammatory lesions
– Be aware of the CT morphological appearances of atypical lung cancers

Solid nodule measurement and follow-up, criteria of positive screens
Helmut Prosch, Vienna/AT

Learning objectives:
– To become familiar with the pros and cons of 2D and 3D measurements of pulmonary nodules
– To understand the importance of module management protocols in lung cancer screening

Monday, January 18, 2021 | 18:00 CET
Subsolid nodules evaluation and follow-up, criteria of positive screens
Marie-Pierre Revel, Paris/FR

Learning objectives:
– To learn how to distinguish between pure ground glass and part-solid nodules
– To learn about the correlations between CT features and histopathology
– To learn about the criteria defining positive screen results and growth during follow-up
– To understand the importance of long term surveillance for non-resected subsolid nodules
– To be aware of the risk of overdiagnosis and overtreatment of subsolid nodules

Monday, February 22, 2021 | 18:00 CET
How to evaluate the coronary arteries and management of ancillary findings
Hans-Ulrich Kauczor, Heidelberg/DE

Learning objectives:
After listening to the webinar, you will
– have gained insight in the rationale of comorbidities and incidental findings of low dose CT in lung cancer screening
– have learnt about the significance of cardiovascular disease for mortality in the LCS population
– have consolidated knowledge about incidentals as being actionable, reportable and not-reportable
– be aware of potential harms: anxiety, cost and additional morbidity
