Hear from our line of experts with our exciting and thought provoking 2020 programme! 

Building on the success of the 2016 and 2018 event, this year's programme will focus on the current developments and challenges in luminal imaging. The event will cover the basic and advanced imaging concepts in the diagnosis and management of common pathologies with talks from leading GI radiologists and clinicians.

This study day will be a useful refresher course for practising radiologists with a GI interest who may encounter these pathologies and examinations as part of their practice. The event will also be valuable to general radiologists and senior trainees developing an interest in GI radiology.

PORTFOLIO - The BIR/DMC Radiology Reporting "Hands-On" HRCT

Date: 29th April 2020  09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

After a sell-out event in 2019, this event is back again in London for 2020!

Welcome to The BIR HRCT portfolio where you can build evidenced learning on HRCT and rise ahead of your colleagues! The registration fees for this event includes all components required to complete the portfolio. Find out more about the portfolio here or email us at conference@bir.org.uk

As part of the portfolio, you are required to attend The BIR/DMC Radiology Reporting "Hands-On" training series: HRCT in diffuse lung diseases on 29 April 2020 in London. This event will provide delegates with “Hands-On” experience of reviewing cases with experts in the field.

This event will provide delegates with “Hands-On” experience of reviewing cases with experts in the field.

View full event programme

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 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.

 

Past delegate feedback include:
 

“As I found last year, this intensive course with it's associated package of learning resources has been exceptional. It is without doubt the best course I have ever attended and although quite expensive for a one day course it is worth every penny. The teaching is superb, the venue extremely convenient and the food etc also very good. I feel that I have earned my 10 CPD points!”

 

“Excellent, thank you very much. I feel much more confident in approaching HRCT in my daily practice.”

 

“A really well planned/structured course, interesting cases. Great speakers.”

 

“Great educational value. Excellent range of cases covered. Hands on workshop brilliant.”
