The Fleischner Society is an international, multidisciplinary medical society for thoracic radiology, dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the chest.  Founded in 1969 by eight radiologists whose predominant professional interests were imaging of chest diseases, the Society was named in memory of Felix Fleischner, an inspiring educator, clinician, and researcher who made many contributions to the field of chest radiology.

PACSBin Web-Based System for DICOM Datasets

In conjunction with IPF White Paper publication, we are excited to launch the PACSBin web-based system, developed by Drs Jeff Galvin and Jason Hostetter at University of Maryland, which provides efficient scrolling of complete DICOM datasets, with corresponding histology. The initial application for this system will be in IPF, but we anticipate that it will also be suitable for use with many other conditions such as lung nodules. A link to this system will be incorporated into the Fleischner website. http://get.pacsbin.com/fleischner/

-Fleischner Pulmonary Nodule Guidelines in AgileMD App-

Agile MD Official LogoIn 2005, the Fleischner Society established guidelines for the management and follow up of < 8 mm solid lung nodules detected incidentally on non-screening CT imaging in individuals 35 years of age and older.  Guidelines for the management of subsolid lung nodules were established in 2013.  These guidelines are freely available as part of the AgileMD mobile app and enable physicians to quickly ascertain the Fleischner management recommendation for incidental solid and subsolid lung nodulesMore »
