G. Zamboni, Verona/IT

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 will offer a “Webinar Certificate”, starting in 2018. Everyone having attended at least 7 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. The certificate will be personalised, individually stating each of the attended webinars, including short webinar descriptions. 

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

Multidisciplinary Webinar
Preoperative local staging of breast cancer: tailoring the surgical treatment

J. Camps-Herrero, Alzira/ES (radiologist)
R. Ponzone, Turin/IT (surgeon)

April 24, 2018
18:00 CET

Webinar Description
An adequate local staging is fundamental in tailoring the surgical treatment to the patients and it implies a multidisciplinary revision of both clinical and imaging information. As a consequence, radiologists should report all the findings which have an impact on clinical decision making.
This ESOI webinar is the second of a series in 2018 to approach imaging from a multidisciplinary view and therefore important for anyone working in the field of cancer care.
Attendees will learn about the multidisciplinary team management, the relevant questions from clinicians and how radiologists can answer these and vice versa. The teachers will be a team of surgeon and radiologist, experts in breast cancer management. A short lecture given by the surgeon will be followed by case based discussions among the two teachers, in this way simulating a multidisciplinary meeting. A 10 minute time slot at the end of the webinar will provide participants the possibility to ask their questions to the experts.

Learning Objectives
- To learn which is the most appropriate imaging method in the local staging of breast cancer
- To learn why MRI should be used together with conventional imaging in breast cancer staging
- To review the right staging pathway (i.e the importance of 2nd look evaluation of additional lesions that can change the treatment plan, the importance of joint planning -with the surgeon- of the preoperative marking, the specimen evaluation process and the importance of radio-pathological evaluation)
- To learn how to select the best surgical treatment of the breast and axillary nodes

About the Presenters
Dr. Julia Camps-Herrero is a breast radiologist and also the Head of the Radiology Department at the University Hospital de la Ribera in Alzira (Valencia, Spain). She trained in Alicante in general radiology and also in Boston (Mass. General Hospital) in abdominal radiology. Since 1999 she is an active researcher in multimodality breast radiology, with a special interest in MRI. Under her supervision, the diagnostic breast section has been the first unit in the Valencian Community to set up breast MRI, MR-guided biopsies, tomosynthesis and tomo- and ultrasound guided vacuum assisted biopsies and presurgical localizations. Dr. Camps-Herrero is an active speaker in Latin America and Europe, where she has been invited to more than 200 presentations. She is the author of 19 papers, 7 book chapters and 75 scientific posters and oral presentations. She is the current Breast section editor for EURORAD since 2007, has been chairman of the ECR 2012 Breast Subcommittee and of the Spanish Senology Congress in 2015, member of the Programme Planning Committee for ECR 2015 and 2016, is the current Vice-president of SEDIM (Spanish Breast Imaging Society) and the in-coming President of EUSOBI (European Society of Breast Imaging).

Dr. Riccardo Ponzone qualified in Medicine in 1991 and specialized in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1997 the University of Turin. He completed his PhD in Oncological Sciences in Gynaecology at the University of Rome in 2003. He worked at the Molecular Biology laboratories of the Wistar Institute and Children Hospital of Philadelphia, PA, U.S.A. (1987-1988) and at the Departments of Academic Surgery and Gynaecological Oncology of the Royal Marsden Hospital of London and University College Hospital of London, UK (1995 – 1996). From 1999 to 2009 he worked at the Academic Division of Gynaecological Oncology, Mauriziano Umberto I° Hospital in Turin, Italy. Since 2010 he is the Director of the Division of Gynaecological Oncology at the Candiolo Cancer Institute, Turin, Italy. He has always been involved in research projects on breast and gynaecological cancers and has authored 99 scientific publications listed in PubMed as well as several book chapters, guidelines and viewpoints.

This multidisciplinary webinar will be offered to active ESOI members only so please ensure you hold an active membership in 2018.
ESOI welcomes not only radiologists but all clinicians, physicians, scientists and researchers who are interested and/or active in the field of oncologic imaging.

Response evaluation in oncology: RECIST 1.1

Algorithmic approach to the female pelvic mass

E. Sala, Cambridge/UK
May 30, 2018
18:00 CET

Webinar Description
The differential diagnosis for adnexal masses is wide, encompassing a range of benign, borderline and malignant entities. The majority of adnexal masses are benign, but identification of malignant lesions is of paramount importance. Stratification of risk is made on age, menopausal status, imaging features and tumour markers. Imaging evaluation should be used in combination with patient’s age, menopausal status, history, clinical examination and tumour markers, in order to derive an appropriate differential diagnosis. However, ultimately diagnosis may depend on histological confirmation.

Learning Objectives
- To describe the imaging features of benign tumours of the ovaries.
- To understand the diagnostic evaluation and imaging features of malignant tumours of the ovaries.
- To explain the imaging features of inflammatory disorders of the Fallopian tubes.

Evis Sala, MD, PhD, FRCR, is an academic radiologist with a special interest in Cancer Imaging. She is the Professor of Oncological Imaging at the University of Cambridge, UK. Previously, she served as Chief of Body Imaging Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Professor of Radiology, Weill Cornell Medical College in New York until December 2017. Before joining the Memorial Sloan Kettering in July 2012, she was a University Lecturer in Radiology and Specialty Teaching Director (Radiology) at the University of Cambridge, UK. She obtained her PhD from University of Cambridge, UK in 2000 and completed her training in Clinical Radiology at Cambridge, UK in August 2005.
Dr Sala is the Imaging lead for the CRUK Cambridge Centre Integrative Cancer Medicine Theme. Her research focuses on integrated diagnostics, through the clinical development and validation of functional imaging biomarkers to rapidly evaluate treatment response using physiologic and metabolic tumour habitat imaging. Dr. Sala is active in many academic organizations. She is the Chair of Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) Oncologic Imaging Track, serves on the Oncologic Imaging and Therapies Task Force of RSNA and the Genitourinary Imaging Subcommittee of European Society of Radiology. She is an Editorial Board member and Head of Oncology Section of European Radiology.
