UK Pleural Society is delighted to announce its first Thoracic Ultrasound Course.  This course is based upon the highly successful programmes established in Oxford and Bristol.  Course instructors will be experienced practitioners in pleural ultrasound and radiologists.  It is expected that this will cover the theory aspect of thoracic ultrasound training for respiratory trainees and provide some practical hands-on experience too with patients and models.
