ASKLEPIOS Course on
Infectious and Inflammatory Disorders

September 27-28, 2018; Krakow/Poland
Course informationThis course is designed in particular for residents in their final years of training and board-certified general radiologists. Didactic lectures will provide a review and an update of new and emerging methods for imaging of the most common infectious and inflammatory disorders affecting the CNS, the lungs, the abdomen, the pelvis and the bones. Additionally, one lecture will deal with infection in immunocompromised patients. Outstanding educators will highlight the indications, explain the strengths and weaknesses of techniques available and describe the imaging features and signs for diagnosis and differential diagnosis of various infectious and inflammatory diseases. Special focus will be given to practical problem-solving and the proper use of imaging through case interpretation during interactive workshops.

Learning objectives
  • to identify the role of imaging for detection, characterisation, and follow-up in selected common infectious and inflammatory disorders affecting CNS, the lungs, the abdomen, the pelvis and the bones
  • to present recent advances in imaging of the highlighted infectious and inflammatory conditions
  • to explain the strategy for acquiring a comprehensive imaging examination in specific conditions such as the immunocompromised patient
  • to apply interpretation methodology/principles and recognise keys and pitfalls in the differential diagnosis from neoplastic diseases
  • to get familiar with essential imaging features, which may alter the therapeutic management of the highlighted infectious and inflammatory disorders
