ESOR Foundation Course

UROGENITAL RADIOLOGY | Online | October 12, 2022

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 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. 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. 

Learning objectives

  • To learn about the advantages and limitations of modern imaging techniques for genito-urinary disease including CT and MR
  • To solve frequent clinical problems in genito-urinary radiology by using various imaging modalities
  • To give advice for image interpretation and reporting of various genito-urinary imaging studies to provide a differential diagnosis for common and less common pathologic conditions of the genito-urinary system

12:30-13:10 Anatomical variations, inflammation and stones of the urinary tract
N. Grenier, Bordeaux/FR


– To learn how to differentiate and characterize the most frequent anatomical variations of the urinary tract
– To learn about the different imaging patterns of acute and chronic infection of upper renal tract
– To give advice for detection and characterization of urinary stones using CT and spectral CT

13:10-13:50 Adrenal masses: characterisation and differential diagnosis
G. Villeirs, Ghent/BE


– To understand the clinical and imaging presentation of adrenal lesions
– To recognize the most common adrenal abnormalities

13:50-14:30 Malignancy of the upper tracts and bladder
J. Richenberg, Seaford/UK


– To appreciate that this topic is best considered as three sub-topics: (i) renal masses [considered elsewhere in the programme], (ii) urothelial tumours of the pelvicaliceal system and ureters (upper tracts) and (iii) tumours of the bladder (lower tract); the latter two sub-topics present usually with haematuria
– To understand sequential use of ultrasound, CT and MRI in the setting of haematuria when malignancy is suspected
– Through case review, to grasp how CT can be used in the diagnosis and staging of urolthelial cancer

14:30-15:00 Q&A
15:00-15:30 BREAK
15:30-16:10 Characterisation of renal masses
N. Grenier, Bordeaux/FR


– To learn about the histologic spectrum of renal tumours.
– To become familiar with the New Bosniak classification of cystic renal masses.
– To understand how functional MR techniques help to characterise solid renal tumours

16:10-16:50 Prostate gland: benign and malignant appearances
G. Villeirs, Ghent/BE


– To understand the correlation between imaging patterns and histology
– To learn how to use the PI-RADS scoring system
– To comprehend the impact of PI-RADS scoring on clinical workup

16:50-17:30 Scrotal appearance: masses and emergencies
J. Richenberg, Seaford/UK


– To learn how to use ultrasound comprehensively and MRI sparingly in characterising scrotal masses: intra- and extra-testicular
– To manage incidental small intra-testicular lesions
– To consider the focused and clinically smart use of US in the setting of testicular infection, trauma or torsion

17:30-18:00 Q&A
