ASKLEPIOS Course on
Most common GI Disorders

September 26-27, 2019; Novi Sad/Serbia
Course informationThe course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in common abdominal disorders. It is designed as an intense two-day programme. The course is focused on the most common abdominal disorders and their differentials: what is the role of radiologist for diagnosing sigmoiditis, cholecystitis, small bowel obstruction and appendicitis? A particular focus will be on the peritoneal diseases and the diagnosis of abdominal hernias. Pitfalls in characterising bile duct stricture, cirrhosis and pancreatic pseudotumours will be highlighted. Renowned European experts will ensure a high-quality teaching programme, combining lectures and workshops, allowing for interactive case discussions.
