This course is a full two days hands-on training course on rectal MRI.  In an interactive setting over  75 cases will be evaluated by each participant covering the entire spectrum of staging of the mid, upper and low rectal tumors, restaging after neoadjuvant treatment focusing on clinically relevant issues and new developments in diagnosis and treatment. In addition, the faculty will provide short hands-on lectures during each session, which will focus specifically on questions/issues raised by the participants during the case studies. Moreover, lectures will be held on general topics such as MR protocol optimization, standardized reporting, all based on the ESGAR consensus guidelines.  At the end of each session, the most difficult cases (as indicated by the participants) and main teaching points will be discussed plenary. All participants will receive a syllabus containing all lectures, cases, as well as specific teaching points that can be derived from each case.

Bring your buddy

The course is according to the principle “ bring your own buddy”. This educational concept simulates daily practice by the multidisciplinary approach of cases. Each radiologist can have 1 (non-radiological ) clinician from his own institute joining the course and evaluating the cases together with the clinician. The registration of the clinical partner will  then be at a reduced fee.
