September 9 - 10, 2021
The workshop will be held in English.

M. Bali, Brussels/BE
The workshop will be streamed live.
The session times are CEST (Central European Standard Time).
The European Society of Abdominal and Gastrointestinal Radiology (ESGAR) and the European Society of Digestive Oncology (ESDO) are organising together a multidisciplinary course on hepatobiliary, pancreatic and gastrointestinal tract neoplasms.
The course aims to provide knowledge on an integrated approach of imaging in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. In expert lectures and interactive workshops held by a renowned European multidisciplinary faculty, the attendees learn about new imaging methods, the clinically relevant questions and how the answers impact treatment decision making in hepatic, pancreatic and gastrointestinal cancer.
The target group consists of senior residents and specialist involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with hepatic, pancreatic and GI tract neoplasms (such as radiologists, nuclear medicine specialists, surgeons, oncologists, gastroenterologists and radiotherapists), who are interested to learn and improve their knowledge on an optimal approach to multidisciplinary treatment management exploiting the use of imaging.

CME European credits:
“The ESGAR/ESDO Workshop on Abdominal Neoplasms: Improving patient management through a multidisciplinary approach, Vienna (ONLINE), Austria, 09/09/2021-10/09/2021 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 13 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”
“Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
“Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.”
How to obtain your CME certificate:
CME certificates will be provided to participants participating in the live workshop sessions AND completing the respective evaluation form. The number of hours will be calculated according to the actual time spent participating in the live sessions.
