Comment: The course is aimed at Consultants and Specialist Trainees who have little or no experience of thoracic ultrasound. The day provides both lectures and practical experience. The lectures cover the basic theoretical training in ultrasound as recommended by the Royal College of Radiologists; the indications for thoracic ultrasound; the imaging features of thoracic diseases; and basic biopsy technique. During the practical sessions, you will be divided into small groups and will scan a number of normal volunteers and patients under direct supervision of a trainer.
