Early recognition, screening and treatment of lung, heart, esophageal and aortic conditions can delay progression and may even prevent the mortalities related to ruptured aneurysm, lung cancer and esophageal metastases. Recent technological breakthroughs and better understanding of these conditions has led to improved care of patients through physician screening and education. This program has been specifically designed to provide an update for internal medicine, primary care, emergency medicine, pulmonologists, cardiologists and nurses regarding diseases related to the abdomen.
