Symposium on Imaging Hallmarks of Cancer

October 18-19, 2018; Lisbon/Portugal
Course information

The course is designed for radiologists and all those professionals interested in acquiring knowledge on cutting-edge methods to diagnose, to treat and to manage cancer patients.  A renowned multidisciplinary faculty will provide the delegates with a blend of basic science and the most recent developments in computational, functional, and molecular imaging techniques as well as in the rapidly evolving field of interventional oncology. 

Learning objectives
  • to learn how to use novel imaging methods to interrogate cancer biology and physiology
  • to envision how translational research may help developing imaging research
  • to become familiar with and understand the added value of image-guided intervention in cancer care
