PROGRAM

Course Overview and Target Audience

This comprehensive course provides state-of-the-art information on current trends and future perspectives in imaging in the detection, management and treatment of cancer patients. Advanced imaging techniques are used to determine the best approach for treatment and individualized therapies. The faculty will discuss the utility of recent advances in imaging to assess a variety of cancers. The main sessions will focus on the etiology, pathology and prognosis for common abdominal, breast, neurologic, thyroid, lung, genitourinary, gastrointestinal, and pelvic cancers. Break-out sessions will provide attendees the opportunity to learn more in-depth developments with multiple modalities including: CT, MRI, ultrasound, mammography, nuclear medicine, PET, neuroradiology, and interventional radiology. Essential pearls and pitfalls in imaging interpretation and reporting will be provided by faculty who are experts in their fields. The conference will also highlight the need for multidisciplinary care through presentations provided by world class experts in other disciplines, including surgical, radiation and medical oncology, as well as pathology. Specialized workshops will provide information on emerging techniques including MRI, biopsy procedures, problem solving, and ablation and embolization techniques.
