Solid nodule measurement and follow‐up, criteria of positive screens
Speaker: Helmut Prosch, Vienna/AT | Moderator: Mario Silva, Parma/IT

  

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

Subsolid nodules evaluation and follow-up, criteria of positive screens
Speaker: Marie-Pierre Revel, Paris/FR | Moderator: Mario Silva, Parma/IT

 
   

General description, scope and objectives of this webinar
The programme of this webinar will cover the evaluation of subsolid nodules. It is aimed at thoracic/chest radiologists, radiologist residents/juniors, students and people who are interested in the ESTI LCS certification project who want to improve their skills in:
– the evaluation of lung nodules
– the awareness of management guidelines

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:
– distinguish between non solid and part-solid nodules
– depict growth by comparing to previous CT examination
– suggest the appropriate management in their CT report

Comorbidities and incidentals findings in lung cancer screening CT
Speaker: Hans-Ulrich Kauczor, Heidelberg/DE | Moderator: Mario Silva, Parma/IT

 
   

General description, scope and objectives of this webinar
The programme of this webinar will cover the most important comorbidities and incidentals findings in lung cancer screening CT. It is aimed at thoracic/chest radiologists, radiologist residents/juniors, students and people who are interested in the EST LCS certification project who want to improve their skills in:
– the detection and grading of comorbidities and incidental findings
– the decision to not report insignificant incidental findings
– the management of actionable incidental findings

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to
– 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 and obstructive airway disease for mortality in the LCS population and the Big 3 approach
– have consolidated knowledge about incidentals as being actionable, reportable and not-reportable
– be aware of statements on management of important incidentals

An overview of LCS: A summary of the main trial results, from ELCAP to NELSON
Speaker: Cornelia Schaefer-Prokop, Amersfoort/NL | Moderator: Mario Silva, Parma/IT

  

General description, scope and objectives of this webinar
The webinar will describe the history of lung cancer screening studies starting with ELCAP, including the two largest randomized trials (NLST and Nelson) and covering the smaller European trials.
Differences of methodology will be discussed as base for the variability of results. The fact that screening achieves a significant decrease of lung cancer mortality is supported by sufficient evidence. Methodological aspects such the selection of population, the length of screening and interval of screening rounds vary in the various trials and results will be discussed. Current recommendations of professional societies are presented as well as an update of screening activities in European countries and the UK will be summarized.
The webinar is aimed at thoracic radiologists and general radiologist who are interested in the ESTI LCS certification project and want to improve their skills in:
– Knowledge of results of screening trials
– The variations in methodology and their impact in results
– To which extent results have improved our ability to optimize a screening program

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to
− have learned about the differences between the American NLST trial and the European trials in terms of study set up and how these differences influence the results
− be updated on the results of the largest European trial (Nelson trial)
− know more about potential reasons, why in Europe thus far only limited national trials but not broad population-based screening has been installed
− will be informed about cost effectiveness analysis and statements of European professional societies as published thus far

Speaker: Annemiek Snoeckx, Edegem/BE | Moderator: Thomas Frauenfelder, Zurich/CH

 

General description, scope and objectives of this webinar
The programme of this webinar will cover the technical requirements for low-dose CT for lung cancer screening. It is aimed at thoracic/chest radiologists, radiologist residents/juniors, students and people who are interested in the EST LCS certification project who want to improve their skills in:
– Gaining knowledge of dose in lung cancer screening trials
– Evaluating and optimizing low-dose chest CT protocols for lung cancer screening
– Gaining insight in how lung cancer screening scans should be read

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to
– have gained insight in the importance of low dose CT in lung cancer screening
