    A good talk but Can be improved
    By Hamed S. on 02. March 2017 for Lung Cancer, Tumors and Metastases: Neoplasias

    Really enjoyable talk and informative. It would be great if the Lecturio team could also dedicate a short talk on the approach to a lung mass, differential dx, work up and follow up/treatments
