Abstract

PURPOSE: It can be difficult particularly for pulmonary residents and less experienced physicians who are not specialized in chest radiology to differentiate between benign from malignant findings in chest imaging. An interactive, step-by-step tutorial to train and refresh knowledge about benign or malignant findings in chest imaging is desirable.

METHODS: This online chest tutorial consists of over 150 pages & over 330 images covering plain film, CT, MRI, angiography, nuclear medicine & pathology. Chapters offer learning material about tumor appearance, location, SPN/mass, carcinoid, adeno-CA, SCC, other and pseudotumors, development of metastases, TNM, therapy induced pattern. Staging tools enhance the learning experience. Pre- and post-tests evaluate the learning progress. Freetext search and predefined menus allow individual display of contents.

RESULTS: Staging tools enhance the learning experience. Pre- and post-tests evaluate the learning progress. Freetext search andpredefined menus allow individual display of contents.

CONCLUSION: We present an interactive tutorial which serves pulmonary residents and less experienced radiologists as a comprehensive learning tool as well as a quick reference to differentiate benign from malignant findings in chest imaging.

CLINICAL IMPLICATIONS: Automatic staging tools help making staging of common chest malignancies easy and accurate. Free online access and interactive features which are constantly & quickly available enhances the learning experience for the user.
