Visiting Professorship Programme Colombia
Oncologic Imaging

August 7, 2019; Cartagena/Colombia
Course informationThe course is aimed at general board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in abdominal oncologic imaging, focussed on liver, pancreas and prostate malignancies. It is designed as an intense one-day programme connected to the Colombian Congress of Radiology. A particular focus will be on the applications of the latest imaging techniques, diagnostic criteria, staging principles and clinical role of imaging in liver, pancreatic, and prostate cancer. Renowned European experts will ensure a high-quality teaching programme, combining lectures and workshops, allowing for interactive case discussions.

Learning objectives
  • to present an update on current imaging criteria and strategies for the detection and staging of the most frequent/important neoplastic diseases of the liver, pancreas and prostate
  • to review the evolving role and diagnostic potential of imaging regarding tumour detection, staging, and follow-up, within the multidisciplinary Tumour Board Meetings
  • to understand morphological and dynamic imaging criteria for assessing tumour response after treatment in patients with these abdominal malignancies
