ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology) and EPC (European Pancreatic Club) aim to join forces in the organization of a multidisciplinary course on pancreatic diseases. The course aims to provide knowledge on an integrated approach of imaging in the diagnosis, management and treatment of pancreatic diseases. In expert lectures and interactive workshops, the attendees will learn about currently used and emerging imaging methods, the clinically relevant questions and how the answers impact the clinical decision-making.

Interactive elements:

The course format encourages interaction with teachers in an open welcoming atmosphere. Lectures will be followed by workshops in smaller groups simulating multidisciplinary clinical conferences.

The target group consists of senior residents and junior specialists/consultants with particular interest in the diagnosis and management of patients with pancreatic diseases.
