University Hospital Basel
The workshop will be live streamed in a Zoom Webinar format.
The session times are CEST (Central European Standard Time).
"The event was very well organised, and it allowed us to have direct interaction with the speakers despite not being "on site". The scientific quality of the presentations was extremely high."
"The course has brought me a lot. I had already taken part in the course in 2017 and this time I learned something again that will influence me in everyday life. The speakers are very competent and showed interesting cases."
"This has been an amazing virtual workshop."
"Thank you so much. High quality presentations. Very approachable experts."

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 October 12.
Please structure your case as follows:
1. relevant clinical information
2. relevant imaging findings
3. additional relevant information if any (such as biopsy results)
4. challenging question(s) for panellists
If you send case with a valid solution (e.g. by biopsy or by F/U imaging) 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.
Radiologists in Training (Residents)
The number of participants per workshop is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first come first served basis. Together with the registration payment is necessary. Registrations as radiologist in training (Residents) or Radiographers must be accompanied by a confirmation of the head of the department confirming the status as Resident or Radiographer.
