GALEN Advanced Course on
Imaging in Vascular Diseases

May 17-18, 2018; Lublin/Poland
Course informationThis course is intended for senior residents, subspecialists and recently board-certified radiologists. It is designed to provide an in-depth view into modern state-of the-art imaging in atherosclerosis and vascular diseases. Recent advances and already established applications in vascular radiology will be presented by internationally renowned European experts. Starting with more general lectures about advantages and disadvantages of currently used non-invasive techniques including CTA and MRA and about challenges of imaging in atherosclerosis, the role and the possibilities of modern vascular radiology will be discussed for different clinically relevant conditions. Thus, the spectrum of this course ranges from technical basics to modern applications, from examination protocols to image interpretation, and from acute to chronic. Acute aortic syndromes and vascular emergencies will be a special focus of this course. The combination of didactic lectures with interactive workshops guarantees the high educational value of this teaching programme.

Learning objectives
  • to review methodology and clinical aspects of modern vascular imaging
  • to refresh knowledge about the possibility of vascular involvement in traumatic and non-traumatic emergencies
  • to become familiar with current best practice indications and integrated imaging techniques for the evaluation of vascular diseases
  • to understand the central role of radiology for the early diagnosis and fast treatment in vascular emergencies
