Clinical/Research Fellowship in Hybrid Imaging in Oncology

January 2021

Application Deadline: March 15, 2021

The imaging department in Gustave Roussy Cancer Campus Hospital (Paris Saclay University) (Villejuif, France) in France (south suburb of Paris) (head: Dr. Corinne Balleyguier) includes two main departments: nuclear medicine department and radiology department. Gustave Roussy hospital has been stated in 2020 as the 5th world’s best cancer center in the world, in terms of clinical and research activities. Imaging in radiology and nuclear medicine is focused on cancer patients, from screening to post treatment imaging. All types of cancer are treated in Gustave Roussy. The radiology department includes 2 CT scanners, one equipped with dual tube technology, 2 MRI (1.5 and 3 T), 1 breast imaging unit equipped with 3 digital mammography units with contrast-mammography, tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound with shear-wave elastography, and XRay and ultrasound units with experiences in contrast ultrasonography. A brand new nuclear medicine department opening in June 2021 will be equipped with 2 new digital PET-CTs and 1 new SPECT-CT. The nuclear medicine department has a high experience in neuro-endocrine tumors, thyroid tumors particularly. Strong collaboration between the clinical departments (especially breast oncology department, surgery, pathology, pediatrics …) allows optimal patient management and fruitful research. Radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians are involved in patient management with multidisciplinary sessions (more than 18 /week). Research in imaging oncology in radiology and nuclear medicine, artificial intelligence, biomarkers is encouraged in the department, part of the research lab BIOMAPS (Paris Saclay University).

During 2021/2022 one place will be available for a recently board-certified European radiologist, who is a full member of ESR. Applicants can apply for a research/clinical fellowship.

Research Fellowship in Imaging of Cancer

January 2021

Application Deadline: February 15, 2021

The Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam is a Comprehensive Cancer Center with a focus on innovation in research and treatment of cancer patients. The department of radiology provides highly subspecialised diagnostic and interventional oncology service in almost all tumour types. The clinical and translational research at the department is multidisciplinary in collaboration with surgery, radiotherapy and other clinical specialties. It focuses on imaging for the assessment of response to cancer treatment with validation in particular of functional MR parameters. The research in rectal cancer MRI is an internationally recognised track and many related projects are taking place. The MR rectal research extends to other cancer types including breasts, lung, colon, liver, melanoma, brain and head and neck tumours. Another important focus of research is Radiomics and image segmentation. The imaging research at the Department of Radiology is performed and supervised by an international team of PhD fellows, post doc scientists, radiologists, surgeons and radiotherapists. The combination of an inspiring research infrastructure and atmosphere together with a high volume cancer care facilitates many relevant and innovative clinical imaging projects in our Comprehensive Cancer Center.

During 2021/2022 two places will be available for recently board-certified radiologists, who are full members or corresponding members of ESR.

5th ESDO Masterclass

September 10-11, 2021

We kindly invite you to join the virtual 5th ESDO Masterclass, organised in collaboration with the Congress of the Polish Society of Clinical Oncology. Renowned experts will teach during 2 half-days on the latest discoveries in diagnosis and therapies for GI cancers. The topics are presented live as mini-debates, focusing on what “should be done and what should NOT be done” in practical terms for everyday patients. In special “sponsor corners” we present the most recent and important trials which are “a must” to be known by GI oncologists. We provide abundant interaction time for all those who would like to discuss difficult cases and raise important questions.

Partner society members will benefit from free participation if they mention the name of their society in the online registration form.

Please visit the website for further details.
Registration form for ESOI members is available here.
