ESOR Foundation Course


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 Imaging Informatics. It is strictly adhered to Level II of the European Training Curriculum and is aimed to familiarise radiologists with the all topics related to Imaging Informatics, from basics like technical standards (DICOM, IHE, HL7, etc.) to the latest technical and methodological advances (including radiomics and AI). The course includes six topics consisting of 40 minutes of theory and practical examples followed by a live Q&A section after each session for interaction with the faculty members.

Learning objectives

  • to learn about the relevant technical standards in imaging informatics (DICOM, IHE, HL7, NIFTI, etc.)
  • to become familiar with the relevant rules and regulations regarding medical imaging devices and softwares as well as data privacy rules (GDPR, MDR, etc.)
  • to learn about common information systems and their specific purposes in radiology
  • to understand the potential value and limitations of structured radiological reporting and standardized ontologies
  • to become familiar with common methods of interacting and working with image data (e.g. 3D renderings, image annotation and segmentation, etc.)
  • to learn about future developments in the field and how CAD-systems, radiomics and AI impact radiology
