Course informationThe course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in abdominal oncologic imaging. It is designed as an intense one-day programme, directly linked to the Georgian Congress of Radiology, as part of the ESR Support Initiative. A particular focus will be on the applications of the latest imaging techniques, diagnostic criteria, staging principles and clinical role of imaging in liver, pancreatic, renal and testicular cancer.
