Great lecture
By Andrei C. on 08. February 2020 for Atelectasis

The explanations are very clear and followed step-by-step. Also there are a lot of cases and until the end of the lecture you see enough of the same pathology to have an idea. Love it!

Radiologic knowledge is very helpful for physiciens
