The workshop will be held in English.
Prof. Christoph J. Zech
University Hospital Basel
Prof. Valerie Vilgrain
Université Paris Diderot,Sorbonne Paris Cité
The aim of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive coverage of all the main liver pathologies that will be presented by means of an integrated multimodality approach. Imaging findings will be analysed on the basis of their pathological correlations.
The format of the workshop will include formal lectures that have been assigned to expert colleagues, able to thoroughly discuss each topic. Moreover, an interactive discussion on real clinical cases will be led - in additional “slots” - by the faculty members who will help to define the state-of-the-art in the diagnosis of liver diseases. A specific aim of the workshop is to provide practical suggestions on how to manage the diagnostic work-up of liver diseases in the daily practice.
