Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I *Barcelona, SPAIN Visit the Venue to read more
Welcome from the 2015 presidents
On behalf of the European Society of Thoracic Imaging and the Fleischner Society, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Joint Meeting of ESTI and the Fleischner Society 2015. The meeting is to be held in the centre of Barcelona from June 04-06, 2015, at the Hotel Rey Juan Carlos I.
Barcelona is the capital city of Spain and located on the coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs and bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range. Besieged several times during its history, Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The varied and interesting multidisciplinary programme is equally dedicated to most recent developments in thoracic imaging and diagnosis as well as to education and training.
This leading international congress in chest imaging 2015 is attracting different medical specialities beyond radiology as well as non-medical scientists and young academics. The multidisciplinary faculty of international experts will stimulate the academic discourse. Case-based discussions and interactive involvement of the audience guarantee practical applicability. Topics will be discussed from a clinical and radiological point of view, mirroring the growing importance of interdisciplinary cooperation. Renowned European and international speakers will share their knowledge and experience.
On Wednesday, June 03, a “CT-patterns in lung disease” hands-on course will be offered with two parts, dedicated to pattern analysis and differential diagnosis. Both parts will be offered twice to allow a smaller audience and thus ensure an interactive approach.
A state-of-the-art technical exhibition will display the most recent technical developments in the area of thoracic imaging. Educational and scientific posters will be displayed on screens to allow discussions with colleagues and authors.
The congress is open to radiologists and clinicians actively involved or interested in thoracic imaging and diagnosis. Everybody is invited to participate and present the scientific work with awards awaiting the best papers and posters.
It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us in one of the most significant and exciting scientific events in the field of thoracic imaging in 2015, to take the opportunity to meet colleagues and friends, make new contacts, exchange knowledge and ideas and last but not least, enjoy Barcelona.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Barcelona in June 2015!
