ASKLEPIOS Multimodality Course

May 19-20, 2016; Dublin/Ireland
This course is aimed at last year residents, general radiologists and general practitioners who want to update their knowledge on new applications and optimised protocols in diagnostic imaging. The course offers the unique opportunity to evaluate some of the latest technological advances for state-of-the-art MRI and MDCT in day-to-day practice and to enhance professional knowledge of current imaging options for a number of clinical conditions. Established European top radiologists will lay the groundwork in didactic lectures for subsequent interactive case discussions in workshops.

Learning objectives
  • to learn about current MRI and MDCT protocol in the field of head and neck, heart, chest, liver, GI and pelvis pathologies
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative merits of each of the cross-sectional imaging modalities in a wide range of clinical conditions
  • to learn more on how to optimise imaging quality
  • to learn about the imaging features relevant for clinical decision making
