ASKLEPIOS Course on
Multidisciplinary Approach to Cancer Imaging

November 2-3, 2017; Rome/Italy
Course informationThis course is designed for radiologists, radiation-oncologists, surgeons and all others involved or interested in obtaining knowledge on the multidisciplinary management of liver, pancreatic, prostate and rectal cancer. The goal is to understand each other’s specialty needs in a multidisciplinary environment. The course aims to provide knowledge on an integrated approach of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Didactic lectures followed by workshops simulating multidisciplinary tumour boards will cover all aspects of patients’ management. A renowned European multidisciplinary faculty of expert radiologists, surgeons and radiation-oncologists will provide the participants with an in-depth knowledge of imaging technology as well as an understanding of how its information can be used for clinical decision making, treatment planning, adaptation and response assessment.

Learning objectives
  • to understand the imaging technology and protocols used in radiology and radiation oncology
  • to learn about relevant questions in each other’s specialty
  • to become familiar with current treatment options in liver, pancreatic, prostate and rectal cancer
  • to know the role of and understand how imaging information impacts treatment stratification, planning and adaptation
