ASKLEPIOS Course on Cardiac and Abdominal Imaging

October 18-20, 2017; Graz/Austria
Course informationThis course is mainly aimed at residents in their late years of training. Space permitting, board-certified radiologists interested in updating their knowledge with regard to cardiac and abdominal radiology are welcome to register. It focuses on specific/personalised approaches and imaging strategies for cardiac and abdominal diseases/pathologies as well as malignancies such as pancreatic, liver, colon or anorectal cancer. Special attention is given to the role of cross-sectional imaging as well as minimal-invasive image-guided diagnosis and therapy. Internationally renowned European experts ensure a high-quality teaching programme.

Learning objectives
  • to consolidate knowledge on personalised aspects of cardiac and abdominal radiology
