It will help you to better:

  • Interpret high-resolution CT scans of the lungs and provide focused differential diagnoses
  • Illustrate a practical approach to the imaging of lung infections
  • Recognize typical manifestations of acute and chronic aortic diseases
  • Define the role of cross-sectional imaging in the evaluation of pulmonary embolism
  • Differentiate between benign and malignant lung nodules/masses on CT and PET
  • Utilize CT and PET in the evaluation and staging of lung cancer
