August 31-September 1, 2017; Vienna/Austria

Course informationThis course is aimed at last-year residents, general radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and oncologists who want to update their knowledge on new applications and state-of-the-art hybrid medical imaging of cancer. No previous practical experience of the subject is required. The expert faculty comprises nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists who will provide a series of lectures describing optimal imaging pathways for oncological diagnosis, follow-up and response assessment. Lectures will be followed by interactive workshops, presented jointly by faculty specialists.
