Symposium on Imaging Hallmarks of Cancer

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

The Symposium is designed for scientists, radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and other experts in cancer imaging interested in acquiring knowledge and sharing their expertise on cutting edge-methods to diagnose and manage cancer patients. An experienced multidisciplinary faculty will provide the delegates with a blend of novel experimental and clinical imaging methods used to diagnose cancer and improve cancer screening as well to interrogate cancer biology and physiology. 

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
