Previous joint Sessions & Events
EACR-ESOI Virtual Conference “Imaging Cancer”
The EACR-ESOI Joint Conference on Imaging Cancer was previously scheduled for September 07-09, 2020 in Berlin, Germany. Unfortunately, this event was postponed due to COVID-19.
Nevertheless, we were pleased to collaborate instead for an EACR Virtual Conference on the same topic on July 08, 2020.

ESOI reaches out to other societies!
ESOI is proud to have established close relations with a number of international non-radiological societies that play crucial roles in the field of oncology. By identifying common grounds for collaboration, ESOI aims to work together with its esteemed partners to extend, strengthen and promote multidisciplinarity in cancer management.
Alongside multidisciplinary collaboration, ESOI strives towards working together with national radiological societies as well as other radiological subspecialty societies with the aim of ensuring and providing high quality education.

ESOI partners in large-scale international EuCanImage Project
EuCanImage: A new large-scale international project funded by the European Commission to build a secure and federated imaging platform for next-generation artificial intelligence in oncology.
The EuCanImage consortium is pleased to announce that its €10-million grant proposal has been selected for funding by the European Commission, with a perfect evaluation score of 15/15 points. EuCanImage will build a federated, secure and scalable European cancer imaging platform, with capabilities that will enhance the potential of artificial intelligence in oncology. This 4-year research project will start on 1st October 2020 and will comprise 20 world-renown research institutions, companies and clinical centres across Europe and the United States.
The platform will be populated with a new data resource totalling over 25,000 subjects,
… which will allow to investigate unmet clinical needs like never before, such as for the detection of small liver lesions and metastases of colorectal cancer, or for estimating molecular subtypes of breast tumours and pathological complete response.
Moreover, the cancer imaging platform, leveraging the well-established Euro-BioImaging infrastructure, will be cross-linked to biological and health repositories through the European Genome-phenome Archive, allowing to develop multi-scale AI solutions that integrate organ-level, molecular and other clinical predictors into dense patient-specific cancer fingerprints.
Furthermore, to foster international cooperation and leverage existing success stories, the consortium comprises the coordinators of The Cancer Imaging Archive (TCIA), the US cancer imaging repository funded by the National Cancer Institute.
Karim Lekadir, EuCanImage’s Project Coordinator from the University of Barcelona, declared: “EuCanImage is an unprecedented opportunity to create a long-awaited European platform for sharing and leveraging large-scale cancer imaging and non-imaging data. It will leverage world-renown expertise in the fields of radiomics/radiogenomics, artificial intelligence, data protection, data management, and clinical oncology”.
The consortium consists of the following partners:
1. Universitat de Barcelona, Spain (Coordinators)
2. Universiteit Maastricht, Netherlands
3. Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam, Euro-BioImaging Node, Netherlands
4. Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain
5. Centre for Genomic Regulation, Spain

20. Kauno Klinikos, Lilthuania
Updated European Training Curriculum for Radiology
The European Training Curriculum for Radiology (former European Training Charter for Clinical Radiology) is designed to provide a valuable template for training radiologists and to enhance the quality of care for patients throughout Europe.
The 2020 edition of the ETC was created in close collaboration with relevant Subspecialty and Allied Sciences Societies. The updated edition contains such novelties as introduction paragraphs for Levels I and II as well as fully reworked chapters on Medical Imaging Informatics.
