Following on from last year's successful meeting, this interactive webinar seeks to give a comprehensive understanding of Chest X-Rays (CXRs). Starting from the normal CXR and working through patterns of infection, in this meeting you'll learn about interstitial and pleural disease, mediastinal and hilar abnormalities.

Participants will have the opportunity to read through a selection of cases via an online link that will be provided by 10 October 2022. The session will comprise of short lectures and feedback sessions of images sent to each attendee prior to the event.

Participants will be able to:

  • Learn what constitutes a normal CXR 
  • Understand patterns of collapse and consolidation 
  • Gain confidence in the interpretation of mediastinal and hilar structures 
  • Work through and discuss examples of all the above 

Follow us on: 


We would like to thank Collective Minds for their support of this event.
