Part 1: Kick-off Workshop: November 9, 2023
Part 2: Independent reviewing of cases
(November 9 - December 9)
Part 3: Meet the expert sessions: December 11-12, 2023
The workshop will be held in English.
Prof. Christoph J. Zech
University Hospital Basel
The workshop will be live streamed in a Zoom Webinar format. The session times are CET (Central European Time).
This intensive practical course will focus on the most common current indications for liver imaging – cirrhotic patients, oncological patients, patients at no risk with incidental findings and response to therapy of liver tumours. The attendees will be encouraged to participate in the interpretation of over 50 real-life cases with hands-on feedback from an international faculty of experts. The cases will range from intermediate to advanced complexity.
The course outline will consist of 5 steps:
Step 1 – Virtual kick-off workshop in Zoom (November 9, 2023)
Step 2 – Pre-course self-assessment test for participants
Step 3 – Independent reviewing of cases
Step 4 – “Meet the expert” hands-on feedback session (December 11 and 12)
Step 5 – Post-course self-assessment test for participants
Radiologists with a good basic knowledge of cross-sectional imaging who want to improve their skills on liver imaging.
To provide participants with variety of cases in an informal and interactive setting via an online PACS solution.
To reproduce the PACS work environment with availability of experts for questions.
To propose an alternative and innovative learning methods based on active involvement by participants.
Learning objectives/outcomes of the course
Interpret patient cases in DICOM format.
Develop expertise in the diagnostic evaluation of a range of focal and diffuse liver diseases in cirrhotic patients, oncological patients and in patients at no risk with incidentally found liver lesions.
