All speakers

Registered participants wishing to share an interesting / difficult case for discussion with the experts during the workshop are cordially invited to submit their case by November 30. 

Please structure your case as follows: 

1. relevant clinical information

2. relevant imaging findings 

3. additional relevant information if any

4. challenging question(s) for panellists

If you send a case with a valid solution then please do also send the correct diagnosis, so that the speaker can prepare some learning points. You may, however, also send a completely unclear case. 

Please contact the ESGAR Office to receive an upload link for your power point presentation. Please make sure that all images are anonymized. You should let us know if the speaker may involve you in the discussion or even invite you to participate during the session, or if you do not want to be mentioned during the session.

The best cases will be discussed during the workshop.
