Subsequently, after the presentation of the themes, the seminar was open to debate between the doctors and Dr. Ronaldo Baroni, who facilitated the exchange of ideas regarding the subject. 

CBR took advantage of lung cancer awareness month and brought the subject up for debate. This edition of the Webinar aimed to raise awareness about lung cancer and the importance of its prevention. The event was in partnership with the European School of Radiology (ESOR), the American Society of Thoracic Radiology (STR) and the most important Brazilian medical societies linked to thoracic diseases.
