Informative lecture
By Catherine M. on 28. August 2017 for Thoracic Radiology

Wow, this is so informative! I never expected to learn the relevance and all the info presented in an engaging and comprehensive manner. I only wish that the interface for taking notes could be made a bit more accessible though to learners. Other than that, I enjoyed the lecture very much.
