Visiting Professorship Programme Argentina
Abdominal Imaging

November 4, 2017; Mar del Plata/Argentina
Course informationThis course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in high quality abdominal imaging. This intense one-day programme is articulated on imaging strategies for liver, pancreas and small bowel pathologies, with emphasis in technical strategies and reporting guidelines. Latest cross-sectional imaging techniques will be discussed regarding lesion detection, characterisation, staging and follow-up with radiological-pathological correlation. Renowned European lecturers will ensure a high teaching quality programme, hybrid combining lectures and workshops, allowing for interactive case discussions. The course takes place one day after the National Meeting of Residents, where young physicians representing their respoective schools present clinical-radiological cases of interest. These cases are discussed together with their fellow residents under the coordination of experts.

Learning objectives
  • to convey in-depth knowledge on the role of imaging liver, pancreas and small bowel disorders
  • to present a comprehensive and practical overview of updated current imaging protocols and derived information in the detection and evaluation of abdominal pathologies
  • to review main pearls and pitfalls in abdominal imaging
  • to discuss state-of-the-art imaging approaches in both qualitative and quantitative aspects of liver, pancreas and small bowel diseases
