ESGAR/ESCP Workshop on GI tract tumour - a multidisciplinary approach

Introduction

The European Society of Abdominal and Gastrointestinal Imaging (ESGAR) and the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) are organising together a multidisciplinary course on GI tract tumour.

Aims

This course aims to enhance the multidisciplinary approach of patients with malignant diseases of the GI tract as well that of the postoperative patients and it will increase the quality of management. In expert lectures and interactive workshops each given by a multidisciplinary group of radiologists, surgeons, gastroenterologists, pathologists and radiotherapists the attendees learn about new imaging methods, the clinically relevant questions and how the answers impact treatment decision making in oesophageal and bowel cancer and postoperative complications of bowel surgery.

Target Group

Radiologists, gastroenterologists, radiotherapists, oncologists, surgeons
