OIC 2015

For our fifth anniversary, we have assembled yet another outstanding faculty from Europe and North America to present the most current information about oncologic imaging. The theme of this year's course will be "Pearls and Pitfalls in Everyday Practice".       

Through both didactic lectures and interactive problem-solving case presentations using an audience-response system, the course will enhance radiologists’ confidence in interpreting oncologic images and providing clinically relevant reports. Workshops featuring computer workstations will also supply direct, hands-on experience and allow additional interaction with the faculty
