About this Program

This webinar focuses on two critical pulmonary emergencies encountered in the emergency room: pneumothorax and pulmonary embolism (PE). Participants gain a deep understanding of the clinical presentation, risk factors, and complications associated with these conditions. The role of computed tomography (CT) imaging in diagnosing and evaluating pneumothorax and PE is emphasized, highlighting its advantages and limitations. Specific CT findings for pneumothorax and PE are discussed, enabling participants to accurately interpret and assess the severity of these conditions. The session concludes with a comprehensive overview of clinical management strategies for pneumothorax and PE.
