ESMOFIR Workshop 2016.2

ESMOFIR

ESMOFIR was officially founded on December 9th in Budapest during the Annual Leadership meeting. This society wants to be representative of all radiologists interested and/or involved in Functional and Molecular Imaging. Representatives of all subspecialty societies are invited to participate actively in the activities of the society.
Conducted by an Executive Committee and supported by two scientific committees, ESMOFIR tasks will be to provide a scientific forum in Functional and Molecular Imaging and to promote education, research and recommendations in these fields among the radiological community.

Strong links with the European Society of Molecular Imaging (ESMI) have been built to avoid overlap and promote a fruitful scientific collaboration. Combined workshops and courses will be organized with ESMI and subspecialty societies under the auspice of ESR, ECR and ESOR.
We expect a large participation of enthusiastic radiologists to ESMOFIR tasks for an active development of our discipline in the direction of quantitative imaging.

Course Overview

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women with a stable incidence and a decrease in mortality, which is attributed to improved imaging and therapeutic options. Detection and characterization of breast cancer at an early stage is pivotal. Morphologic imaging is still of utmost importance. Nevertheless functional and molecular imaging techniques are assuming an increasingly important role in the non-invasive diagnosis and staging of breast tumors. In recent years there have been advances with regards to functional and molecular imaging in all breast imaging techniques such as mammography/ tomosynthesis, ultrasound, MRI, and nuclear medicine. Profound knowledge and understanding of current and emerging morphologic, functional, and molecular imaging modalities are warranted. This allows a deeper insight into tumor biology and represents one more step towards personalized medicine.
In 1.5 days this concise yet comprehensive workshop will provide an update on the state of the art as well as cutting edge technologies in breast imaging. Each modality-based session will also feature tutored hands-on teaching of clinical cases to maximize learning benefits in an interactive educational setting.


Learning Objectives
  • Refresh your knowledge on state of the art breast imaging
  • Update your BIRADS knowledge
  • Understand available and emerging functional and molecular imaging techniques
  • Be able to build an imaging protocol taking into account the imaging goal and the imaging modality
  • Practice actively on real cases using different imaging techniques and learn to avoid pitfall
