The BIR/DMCI "Hands-On" training series: HRCT in diffuse lung diseases

19/04/2017 08:30 AM - 19/04/2017 05:30 PM (GMT+01:00) Europe/London

 

The BIR/DMCI "Hands-On" training series continues with the third event on HRCT in diffuse lung diseases. The event will provide delegates with “hands-on” experience of reviewing cases with experts in the field.


Educational aims: 

 

  • To become familiar with common patterns of diffuse lung disease
  • To understand the relationships between radiological patterns and the likely pathological processes
  • To develop a systematic approach to HRCT interpretation in diffuse lung diseases
  • To become familiar with typical and atypical appearances of specified diffuse lung diseases

In each session, delegates will be asked to review up to 10 case studies. This will be followed by an interpretation session with the experts, during which there will be dedicated time for delegates to pose questions and to interact with tutors.

 

The number of places will be limited so that delegates can experience a more personalised, interactive method of teaching. Early booking is therefore strongly advised. 

 

The course will be run using iMacs to provide the best interactive experience for every delegate.

Feedback from previous “Hands-on” training courses:

Excellent course. Large volume of interesting cases all with good learning points.

The idea is perfect - at the moment “hands-on” courses are the only way of learning that I am interested in. Short introductory lectures were necessary and well designed. Provided self-assessment booklets - brilliant!

Tremendous learning experience.


Please note that delegates are no longer able to bring their own Macs or PCs to the course due to technical limitations.
