Using a combination of hands-on workshops, lectures, case-based discussions, and computer-based interactive scenarios, the practical pleural skills course offers a unique opportunity to develop skills in a variety of pleural techniques. This course will look at the different aspects of thoracic imaging, including theory, evidence, technique, normal and abnormal appearances and application in clinical practice.
