ASKLEPIOS Course on Imaging Biomarkers

June 5-6, 2014; Barcelona/Spain
The third ESOR Course on Imaging Biomarkers is back due to popular demand with the aim to familiarise fourth and fifth year radiology residents and board-certified radiologists with cutting-edge clinical imaging technology. The two-day course addresses the definition and development of biomarkers, the multivariant and multiparametric analysis of biomarkers and measurement and biases in imaging biomarkers. Moreover, it will cover the state of the art of imaging biomarkers in different regions of the human body such as in neurological disease, breast tumours, in diffuse liver disease, the pancreas, in female pelvic disease, prostate cancer and in the musculoskeletal system. 

A unique group of European faculty members, well-known for their experience in novel imaging biomarkers, will offer top quality didactic lectures followed by clinical impact discussions in small groups.


Learning objectives

  • to learn the definition and development of imaging biomarkers
  • to understand the multiparametric analysis
  • to differentiate the biases that may influence results
  • to identify the different biomarkers that are used in research and clinical areas in different regions of the human body
  • to recognise oncologic and non-oncologic biomarkers

       Learning objectives by topic
