Highlight Week: Paediatric / Children in Focus
Become familiar with the unique challenges faced in paediatric radiology and the prevailing conditions and imaging strategies used within this field. The Children in Focus sessions detail the complex issues involved in the treatment of children from low-resource areas and in various parts of the world.
Highlight Week: Musculoskeletal / Neuro / Head and Neck
Explore the unique elements and complexities that go into imaging the various sections of the body. Discover the ailments most commonly found throughout the musculoskeletal system, the latest developments in neural lesion treatment and neurological imaging, and the anatomy and methods for improving treatment outcomes when imaging the head and neck.
Highlight Week: Cardiovascular / Chest
Partake in a detailed exploration of imaging and intervention in the field of cardiovascular and chest radiology. Review the anatomy of the chest and vascular system, how best to structure a report when imaging the thoracic region, and the modalities and treatment options used in thrombosis management. Discover the latest techniques in cardiac CT and the management of lung nodules.
Highlight Week: Breast / Hybrid Imaging / Oncological Imaging
Examine the vital role radiology plays in the diagnosis and management of breast and oncological conditions, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of hybrid imaging throughout the field of radiology. Familiarise yourself with the identification and interventional treatment options of a wide variety of cancers throughout the body systems, and learn about the recent developments in breast ultrasound and advancements in clinical hybrid imaging.
Highlight Week: Radiographers / Physics in Medical Imaging
Engage in this enlightening series of sessions that puts the spotlight on the vital work of radiographers as well as exploring the world of physics in medical imaging. Take a tour of radiography through the modalities, including radiotherapy, through safety issues, and a collection of different countries. Gain an insight into the importance of radiographer research and publishing. Get a better understanding of computed tomography management and optimisation, and discover the current trends in digital radiography, interventional radiography, and ultrahigh-field MRI.
Highlight Week: Interventional and Emergency Imaging
Explore the absorbing fields of interventional and emergency imaging, from the best tips and tricks in the management of embolisation to the latest innovations in ultrasound-guided intervention procedures. This collection of sessions provides a thorough examination on stroke diagnosis, workup, and treatment, and looks at what strategies may be used for stroke thrombectomy in the future.
Highlight Week: Professional Issues: from Education to Research
Take a deep dive into the many aspects that go into developing a radiological career, from the undergraduate level through each professional stage, covering such topics as quality and standards, research and reporting, education and academia, and the challenges facing the radiological workforce.
Highlight Week: EuroSafe Imaging: Radiation Protection and Patient Safety
Explore the crucial work being done to ensure the health and safety of patients undergoing imaging procedures using ionizing radiation as well as of imaging professionals. Next to this year’s focus on radiation protection in paediatric imaging, advances in the development of clinical diagnostic reference levels, dose management systems, as well as the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in dose optimisation, will be explored. In addition, ESR Patient Advisory Group representatives will discuss patient expectations regarding AI in radiology and present innovative tools to improve the communication between radiologists and patients.
Highlight Week: Abdominal and Gastrointestinal / Genitourinary
Participate in this fascinating series of sessions that will take you through the essentials of imaging the abdomen and the gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. Refresh yourself on the fundamentals of radiological anatomy of the abdomen and pelvis and learn about the various cancers found in these regions of the body, as well as the most recent innovations in imaging and treatment options.
