A Mineralized Area in the Thorax: What is the Meaning?

In everyday practice, we can come across mineralized structures found in the thorax that shouldn’t be there: For example, mineralized long nodules and mineralization of the bronchi of the lung parenchyma. These lesions are challenging, especially when we are looking for lung metastasis or evidence of chronic bronchitis. This lecture wants to provide keynotes on how to interpret a mineralized “lesion” in the thorax.

    Course reviews

    I liked that series covered lots of topics and there was time for information to settle down. I really enjoyed this course. Thank you.
    The ease of learn at our leisure time due to the time zone difference. Most importantly all the topics were covered with minute detailing as well as proper justifications to them. I loved participating in the polls. Very stimulating and interesting learning experience.
    There were interesting cases I have never encountered before. Also, it gave me a better overview on radiographs now compared to before.
