A pulmonary nodule is a round area that is denser than normal lung tissue. Chest CT is a critical tool in the assessment of pulmonary nodules. Its high contrast enables the highly sensitive identification of pulmonary nodules and it excellently demonstrates nodule characteristics, location and (with multiple studies over time) evolution.
Designed for healthcare professionals responsible for interpreting CTs for pulmonary nodules, this package introduces the approach to this interpretation and nodule assessment and the British Thoracic Society (BTS) guidelines, which are the key guidance for this process. Training cases allow you to build your skills in assessing nodules and applying the guidelines. Finally, the assessment cases enable you to test and demonstrate your abilities.
Upon completion of the modules, reporting statistics are calculated and certificates can be downloaded or shared as evidence of your continuous professional development.
- Learn how to assess pulmonary nodules on CT, applying the BTS guidelines
- Develop skills in interpretation and practice Brock model calculations
- Understand the features which help discriminate benign from potentially malignant nodules and the steps that should be taken next
- Earn CPD points at your own pace
