ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology) and EPC (European Pancreatic Club) aim to join forces in the organization of a multidisciplinary course on pancreatic diseases. The course aims to provide knowledge on an integrated approach of imaging in the diagnosis, management and treatment of pancreatic diseases. In expert lectures and interactive workshops, the attendees will learn about currently used and emerging imaging methods, the clinically relevant questions and how the answers impact the clinical decision-making.
This workshop takes place in collaboration with SIGE (Società Italiana di Gastroenterologia ed Endoscopia Digestiva).
The course format encourages interaction with teachers in an open welcoming atmosphere. Lectures will be followed by case-based interactive multidisciplinary discussions.
The target group consists of senior residents and junior specialists/consultants with particular interest in the diagnosis and management of patients with pancreatic diseases.

Rome is the capital of Italy and also serves as a capital for two communes located around it. With about three million inhabitants it is also Italy’s most populated area. Further the city inhabits the independent country Vatican City within its borders. The city’s history spans 28 centuries and therefore offers interesting sites around every corner. Due to this fact Rome is the most popular tourist attraction in Italy and its historic centre is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. Monuments and museums such as the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum are among the world’s most visited tourist destinations with both locations receiving millions of tourists a year.
