This is a small but dynamic Group which includes thoracic radiologists, pulmologists and specialists in nuclear medicine. We organise many activities within the ERS: postgraduate courses, lectures and grand rounds. One of our central aims is to promote co-operation with other ERS Groups.
In recent years, this has resulted in joint interdisciplinary activities at the International Congress, notably in the fields of occupational lung disease and oncology. One of the highlights of every ERS Congress is the radiology grand round, which is organised by our Group.

Ultrasound is becoming an increasingly important bedside tool for diagnosing, monitoring and procedure guidance in patients with respiratory diseases. The ultrasound group covers all clinical aspects of thoracic ultrasound (TUS) and other relevant ultrasound procedures within the field of respiratory medicine.
Central for the group is to ensure evidence based training and clinical use of thoracic ultrasound, by ensuring active ERS involvement in ensuring training at an international level as well as ensuring the development of international clinical guidelines.
The group also has an ambition to facilitate research projects as well as ensuring ERS early career members and opportunity to get involved in ERS TUS activities at all levels.
