Course Description

Challenge yourself with our Cardiothoracic Cases from Dr. Prachi Agarwal!

Join Dr. Prachi Agarwal (University of Michigan) as she reviews a series of interesting cardiothoracic cases she has seen in her practice. Read alongside her as she provides essential interpretation pearls and pitfalls on these cases, which will help you gain confidence in making these decisions in your own practice.

Listen to her advice on the most helpful CT, Echo, Ultrasound, and MRI imaging sequences to use & when to use them, and her process for narrowing down a diagnosis by ruling out differentials. Dr. Agarwal also includes helpful breakdowns of anatomy and diagnostic definitions. 

Test yourself to determine:

  • Is the finding a likely possibility for osseous lesions sclerotic metastases, radiation change, or bone infarcts?
  • Are multiple lung lesions in a patient due to amyloidosis, Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHD), or Langerhans cell histiocytosis?
  • Is the etiology of a pseudoaneurysm post myocardial infarction, iatrogenic, or blunt trauma?  
  • …and more!
