GALEN Advanced Course on
Contrast Media for Better Diagnostic Accuracy

May 11-12, 2017; Valencia/Spain
Course informationThis course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in contrast enhanced radiological studies, including US, CT and MR imaging. The course will strengthen the importance of contrast enhancement and the benefit of contrast media usage in diagnostic imaging procedures across all indications that require contrast enhancement to achieve the highest diagnostic confidence. Special focus will be on the application of the latest imaging techniques available to improve medical imaging and patient safety. Renowned European experts will ensure a high quality-teaching programme, combining plenary lectures and interactive small group workshops.

Learning objectives
  • to appreciate the potential of advanced contrast enhanced imaging in the clinical management of diseases and their safety concerns
  • to review state-of-the-art contrast enhanced imaging strategies and criteria available in the detection and characterisation of the most frequent/important clinical conditions
  • to learn how to measure different biological properties such as blood flow and capillary permeability in different diseases
