  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Radiology, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust

Following the success of the first pulmonary hypertension imaging masterclass in 2018, this 2nd masterclass again aims to upskill radiologists in the imaging diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension. 

The course is aimed at Consultant Radiologists.

Join a faculty of experts for a one day interactive workshop to explore all forms of pulmonary hypertension imaging, with an emphasis on CT.

Through the use of pre-loaded cases on the laptops provided, you will develop a greater confidence in the radiology diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension. There will a maximum of 30 delegates – the small number allows a true ‘work-shop’ type meeting with open discussion encouraged!

Attendees can expect to:

  • Experience an interactive work-shop styled day with laptops and pre-loaded cases
  • Understand the current criteria and classification of each sub-group of pulmonary hypertension
  • Appreciate referral pathways, radiology imaging and treatment options in patients with pulmonary hypertension
