Our department runs an active chest imaging service, led by Dr Qonita Said-Hartley, with a high case load consisting of exposure to diverse range of thoracic pathology including infective pulmonary conditions, interstitial lung disease, lung cancer screening and the spectrum of cardiothoracic vascular disease.

Furthermore, we run an active image-guided CT-biopsy list providing exposure to and training in thoracic interventional procedures.

Our division actively participates in weekly multidisciplinary conferences, led by Dr. Said-Hartley and Professor Goodman, in combination with the pulmonologists and cardiothoracic surgeons further contributing to a rich learning experience, and has an ongoing research collaboration with the UCT Lung Institute and Division of Pulmonology.
