ESTI 2020 workshop postponed: Please note that the ESTI workshop will also be postponed due to the rescheduling of the ECR 2020. We will keep you updated as soon as the new workshop date is set.
The European Society of Thoracic Imaging (ESTI) initiated a European certification in nodule assessment and lung cancer screening. To pass this ESTI certification, radiologists' practical examination will use MeVis Medical Solutions' software "Veolity" for chest CT reading including the use of computer-aided-nodule detection (CAD) to prove that nodule assessment and management skills are compliant with reporting standards.
According to ESTI, "This certification shall be a common European qualification for nodule assessment and for lung cancer screening." Practicing lung cancer screening at a similar quality level shall help to standardize training and expertise quality across Europe and finally to improve survival in patients at risk of developing lung cancer. The fully booked workshop is on March 10, 2020, right before the European Congress of Radiology (ECR).
