ASKLEPIOS Course on
Women's Imaging

May 11-12, 2018; Bucharest/Romania
Course informationThis course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in women’s imaging. It is articulated on imaging strategies for breast and pelvic pathologies. Special focus is given to the latest cross-sectional imaging techniques in the detection and staging of breast, gynaecologic malignant and non-malignant tumours. Internationally renowned European experts ensure a high quality-teaching programme combining lectures and interactive case discussions.

Learning objectives
  • to convey in-depth knowledge of breast cancer imaging and breast screening
  • to discuss state-of-the-art imaging approaches, using breast US elastography,  breast MRI in the detection and characterisation of breast cancer and in the imaging of the axilla
  • to review interventional procedures of breasts under imaging guidance
  • to review imaging protocols for female pelvic imaging, and potential pitfalls in imaging
  • to refresh knowledge of non neoplastic diseases of the pelvis
  • to present an update on current imaging protocols including PET/MRI for the detection and evaluation of the cervical and ovarian cancer

        Learning objectives by topic - coming soon
