21st September 2017  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM (GMT+01:00) Europe/London

Following the success of the first three BIR/DMC Radiology Reporting "Hands-On" training events on HRCT in diffuse lung diseases, this popular event is now heading to Switzerland, held jointly with Geneva University Hospitals.

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 (1 per delegate) to provide the best interactive experience for every delegate. 

Registration fees:

BIR member/Geneva University Hospitals Staff             £200 (*Approx 200 CHF)
Non-member/Non Geneva University Hospitals Staff     £230 (*Approx 250 CHF)

*Registration fees will be charged in GBP and converted to your local currency. 

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.
