Thoracic Radiology

by Hetal Verma, MD

Chest radiographs are the most common type of imaging exams you'll encounter as a doctor or medical student. All medical practitioners should understand chest X-ray techniques, as well as how to describe findings and abnormalities in the heart, lungs, bones, and breasts. They should also be able to describe and identify common imaging appearances of pulmonary edema and pneumonia, along with the difference between a diagnostic and screening mammogram and what BIRADS categories mean. This base of knowledge will prove extremely useful to medical practitioners in nearly any specialty in the future.

What I think about lecturio teachings
By Kivumbi . on 14. October 2023 for Thoracic Radiology

The explanations are good and are easier to understand, I love lecturio teachings. The tutors make it a point to give detailed explanations in the easiest forms possible with illustrations where possible. Thank you lecturio or I should thank the tutor specifically for making my learning easier

Wish I studied this ages ago.
