GALEN Advanced Course on
Cardio-Thoracic Cross-Sectional Imaging

June 23-24, 2016; Moscow/Russia
This course is aimed at senior residents and recently board-certified radiologists. The purpose of the course is to consolidate the knowledge in cardiac and chest radiology and to provide an integrated view into state-of-the-art cardiothoracic cross-sectional imaging. The course is focused on the advanced applications of CT and MR in cardiac and chest imaging. The range of topics covers new advances in cardiac and chest imaging (new approaches to assessment of myocardial perfusion and stenosis grading, MRI of lungs and airways) and clinically challenging areas of cardio-thoracic radiology such as imaging of patients with acute chest pain, cardiomyopathies, idiopathic interstitial pneumonias, pulmonary infections and lung cancer. The faculty consists of internationally renowned European experts sharing their expertise and best cases. The combination of didactic lectures with interactive workshops guarantees the high educational value of this teaching programme.

Learning objectives
  • to become familiar with the latest technical and methodological advances in diagnostic imaging of cardio-thoracic diseases
  • to gain knowledge about diagnostic and prognostic value provided by modern radiological modalities in a wide spectrum of cardiac and chest diseases
  • to become familiar with the current best practice indications for radiological assessment of patients with most important and challenging types of cardiac and chest pathology
  • to consolidate the knowledge about an integrated approach to diagnostic imaging in cardio-thoracic diseases
