Course information

This course is aimed at residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists interested in Urogenital Radiology. It is strictly adhered to Level I and II of the European Training Curriculum and is designed to improve the knowledge in the field of genito-urinary radiology by providing presentations of diseases of the genitourinary tract with cross-sectional imaging. In this course, gynaecological disease is the focus.  The course includes six topics consisting of 40 minutes of theory and case presentations followed by a live Q&A section after each session for interaction with the faculty members and one lecture on patient communication.

Learning objectives

  • To understand the appropriate choice of imaging tests for gynaecological presentations.
  • To be familiar with normal anatomy and anatomical variants of the gynaecological organs.
  • To recognize common gynaecological pathologies, including benign and malignant diseases.
  • To be familiar with acute imaging findings in pregnancy.
