Since 2015 ESOI has been proudly offering educational webinars on various topics related to oncologic imaging. The live webinars are very successful, well visited and attract many international participants from all over the world.

In 2018, ESOI will offer 15 online lectures, comprising 3 webinars especially dedicated to young radiologists and, for the first time, 2 multidisciplinary webinars. Each webinar will last approximately 60 minutes (50 min. presentation and 10 min. for discussion/questions).

Registration to the first 2 online educational webinars will be offered to every interested participant free of charge. Participation in webinars 3-15 will be free of charge but only open to active ESOI members. Membership is offered to full and associate members for 30,00 € and to residents for 10,00 €.

Webinar Certificate

We are pleased to announce that ESOI offers a “Webinar Certificate”, starting in 2018. Everyone having attended at least 7 live webinars in the current calendar year and correctly answered 70% of the related self-assessment questions will be issued this certificate at the end of the calendar year.

How to obtain the certificate

Please note that the self-assessment questions corresponding with the respective webinar will be shown on your computer directly after the live webinar. As such you will only have this possibility to answer the questions. The questions will relate to the content of the respective webinar.
We do not recommend to follow the webinar in a group, as only the person registered and logged in to the respective webinar will be able to answer the self-assessment questions at the end and therefore recorded. 
We kindly ask for your understanding that currently ESOI Educational Webinars are not CME accredited.

Webinar Topics 2018

14. Assessment of the treatment response of bone lesions in cancer patients: pearls and pitfalls

F. Lecouvet, Brussels/BE
November 19, 2018
18:00 CET

Webinar Description
This webinar first illustrates the possibilities and limits of the aforementioned techniques, especially of the widely available CT examinations. The capabilities of “modern” imaging modalities, and most importantly magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the skeleton and whole body (WB-MRI) are widely presented. Morphologic as well as quantitative and functional approaches that can be used to allow confident evaluation of response of bone marrow lesions to treatment are emphasized. The comparison to cutting edge imaging modalities from the nuclear medicine world, and the impact on patient management are discussed.

Learning Objectives
- to illustrate the possibilities and limitations of CT for the assessment of response of bone metastases
- to highlight the key role of MRI in this setting
- to provide tips and tricks for confident interpretation of images

About the speaker
Frederic Lecouvet has been a Full Professor of Radiology at the Radiology Department at Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Brussels, Belgium, since 2008.
He completed both his medical training (1992) and PhD (1998) at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Brussels, Belgium and has held several specialist teaching appointments focusing on imaging and specifically the use of MRI.
He is currently associate chair of the Department of Medical imaging, head of the MRI unit, head of the Medical Imaging Research Pole of the Institut de Recherche Experimentale et Clinique Research (IREC) at the Cliniques Universitaires Saint-Luc in Brussels.
Professor Lecouvet’s areas of expertise include imaging of bones, spine, joints and cartilage, and development of modern imaging techniques to improve the work-up of oncological conditions, particularly bone tumors and metastases, and the assessment of the response of these lesions to treatment. Metastatic cancer and multiple myeloma are amongst the main fields of development of his research projects.
He is the author of more than 200 peer reviewed papers, 30 book chapters, 6 books, and gave more than 300 international lectures on skeletal radiology, cancer, rheumatology, orthopedy.
He is an elected member of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Belgium (ARMB).

15. Imaging and response assessment of gastrointestinal stromal tumours

A. Laghi, Rome/IT
December 18, 2018
18:00 CET

Learning Objectives
- to learn about epidemiology and histopathology of GIST
- to understand the respective role of different imaging modalities in detection and characterisation of GIST
- to be aware of possible complications
- to understand how to assess response to therapy in metastatic GIST

About the speaker
Professor Andrea Laghi is Full Professor and Chairman of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology at ‘Sapienza’ University of Rome, “Sant’Andrea” Hospital. He is also board certified in Nuclear Medicine. He currently is Vice-President and member of the Executive Committee of ESGAR (European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology), President-elect and member of the Executive Committee of ESOI (European Society of Oncologic Imaging). He is ESGAR delegate at the General Assembly of United European Gastroenterology (UEG). Prof. Laghi is Honorary Member of the Spanish Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (SEDIA), and of the Iranian Society of Radiology. His research interests lie in abdominal imaging and oncology, including hybrid imaging. He is the author of over 260 papers on "peer reviewed" journals (h-index, Google Scholar: 53) and 20 textbooks.
