Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH)


Course Description:

Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH) is a debilitating and underdiagnosed disease. It is the only curable form of pulmonary hypertension and radiologists play a key role in helping identify patients with signs of CTEPH and accelerate appropriate diagnosis. 

In response to feedback from radiologists and PH centres, we have developed a hands-on "train the trainer" workshop to review diagnostic algorithms for CTEPH, to discuss key radiological signs of CTEPH, and discuss treatment options. 

The workshop will be held in the University of Toronto's Advanced Imaging and Education Centre (AIEC) which is located in the Medical Imaging Department at Toronto General Hospital.
