The British Society of Thoracic Imaging (BSTI) are excited to run their annual program this year in partnership with the British Institute of Radiology (BIR)!

This 'virtual event' is open to all – members and non-members of the BSTI and BIR – and we also hope to attract delegates from outside the UK. With a range of national and international speakers covering topics on complex ILD, PH, TB, NTB, UK lung cancer screening and also a lecture from the President of the British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging (BSCI), we hope you agree this will be an informative and enjoyable day.

Who should attend?

This event is relevant to a multi-disciplinary audience consisting of radiologists (both consultant and trainees) radiographers and any other medical professional, interested in updating their radiology knowledge in-line with current evidence.
