The 17th annual course of our Society will focus on practically orientated education of cancer imaging through interactive teaching and the fostering of active learning. State of the art and novel quantitative and functional imaging techniques will be highlighted.
The Society aims to bring together radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and other specialists with an interest in oncological imaging for the exchange of ideas and to organise scientific meetings, multicentre research studies, and postgraduate courses within the field.
Keynote lectures highlight the challenges of precision medicine and the role of imaging in patients undergoing immunotherapy.
Individual learning is emphasised by small group sessions, interactive workshops and computer based hands-on workshops fostering active participation.
A unique feature this year are the live-case workshops in interventional oncology. Delegates will view oncologic interventional therapies such as transarterial chemoembolization (TACE), radioembolization (SIRT), percutaneous microwave ablation (MWA) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) in small groups in Berlin hospitals on Wednesday 4th October. Transport from the conference venue will be provided. Early registration is highly recommended due to the limited number of places
A session entitled cases we would like to read again will present interesting oncologic cases reviewed with the benefit of hindsight.
There will be scientific sessions, dedicated to proffered papers, presenting research in the field of imaging in oncology. There will also be a poster exhibition and the best overall paper and poster will be awarded a prize.
This course is designed for all radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and other specialists interested in the diagnosis and management of cancer patients.
The meeting will be held in the Langenbeck-Virchow Haus, Berlin Germany.
Berlin is one of Europe’s most vibrant capital cities, steeped in history and easily explored on foot or excellent public transport. It’s the perfect destination to spend a few days exploring in early autumn. From the Reichstag to the majestic Brandenburg gate, with myriad museums and a thriving art scene, as well as world class restaurants.
There will be a welcome drinks reception on Monday 2nd October, free to attend for all those who attend the first day of our meeting.
The course party will be held on Tuesday 3rd October on the barge “Alexander von Humboldt” taking us along many of the beautiful sights of Berlin during a delicious buffet dinner.
