SF 14 - Dyspnoea: how to approach the diagnosis of diffuse lung abnormalities on CT

SF 14 - Dyspnoea: how to approach the diagnosis of diffuse lung abnormalities on CT

20:05J. Arenas-Jiménez, Alicante / Spain

Learning Objectives
1. To become familiar with the characteristic radiologic patterns on CT of diffuse lung abnormalities that can be diagnostic for a specific disease.
2. To understand the importance of the clinical and laboratory background when interpreting CT with diffuse changes in patients with acute dyspnoea.
3. To learn about how to use a proposed checklist combining clinical and radiological information to narrow the differential diagnosis in patients with acute dyspnoea and diffuse lung abnormalities on CT.

SF 14 - Non-cardiac chest pain: how to proceed?

SF 14 - Non-cardiac chest pain: how to proceed?

27:40J. Dormagen, Oslo / Norway

Learning Objectives
1. To become familiar with the clinical features and patient characteristics in acute and chronic non-cardiac chest pain (NCCP) and with common and less common causes of NCCP.
2. To understand the clues and pitfalls when imaging the chest for vascular emergencies, including dissection, pulmonary embolism, and less common non-vascular conditions in patients presenting with NCCP.
3. To appreciate the importance of different imaging modalities for differential diagnoses of NCCP.

SF 14 - Acute haemoptysis: causes and radiological treatment

SF 14 - Acute haemoptysis: causes and radiological treatment

20:31M. Wielpütz, Heidelberg / Germany

Learning Objectives
1. To appreciate that haemoptysis can be a life-threatening pulmonary emergency with high mortality, is symptomatic of an underlying severe pulmonary disease, and requires immediate diagnosis and treatment.
2. To learn about contrast-enhanced multi-detector computed tomography with CT angiography as a diagnostic modality in cases of acute haemoptysis to gain information on the underlying pulmonary disease, bleeding site, and vascular anatomy of the bronchial arteries.
3. To understand that bronchial artery embolisation is a safe and potentially lifesaving therapy in severe haemoptysis.
4. To become familiar with the fact that false embolisation in spinal branches of bronchial arteries is the most serious complication of bronchial artery embolisation.

Regarding bronchial artery embolisation, do you have any experience of performing this to treat massive haemoptysis post lung biopsy?

Unfortunately, I do not have experience myself, and we did not perform BAE at any time for hemoptysis after lung biopsy.
