This course is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of Thoracic Radiology aimed at the clinician—whether serving patients in the hospital, outpatient clinic, the research laboratory, or completing training. The program consists of multiple modules covering topics such as the basics of thoracic imaging, airway diseases from a radiographic perspective, imaging of diffuse lung diseases, assessment of solitary and multiple pulmonary nodules, common errors encountered radiographically in an ICU setting, evaluation of pleural and mediastinal abnormalities seen on radiographic imaging, and imaging of the cardiopulmonary circulation. Each module covers key findings, pertinent clinical diagnostics, and reviews strategies for obtaining the appropriate image and what to look for once obtained.

The target audience includes providers in Pulmonary, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine, but is also designed for hospitalists, generalists, and other fields caring for patients who need imaging and who use thoracic radiology as an essential tool.

Course Objectives

After completing this online course, you will be able to:

  1. Use thoracic radiology as a useful tool for diagnosing and managing injuries and illnesses of the chest.
  2. Recognize abnormalities based on previous knowledge of normal anatomy.
  3. Develop standard approaches for viewing thoracic images.
