Learn about the state-of-the-art in oncological imaging
all from the comfort of your home or workplace!

Since 2015, ESOI has been proudly offering high quality webinars given by world class speakers on various topics in oncologic imaging. Our live webinars have been very well received by our members with consistently high turnout and engagement from participants all across the globe. After the presentation, you can even ask questions in real time!

ESOI webinars are oriented towards different levels of expertise, a wide array of topics, and are increasingly becoming more multidisciplinary.
A number of our webinars are carried out in collaboration with medical societies such as ESSO and ESTRO as well as other radiological subspecialty societies.
Young radiologists are also included in the webinar series with special sessions addressing relevant topics for residents.

In addition to the live broadcast, the lectures are uploaded to the Member Area (with an approximate one month delay) so they can be (re)viewed by active ESOI members at their own convenience.
To date, we have more than 60 full length lectures (with in-depth discussions and Q&A)!

  • ESOI does not issue individual certificates of attendance for the webinars.
Webinar Testimonial – Zuhir B.

“The ESOI online education program has been a game-changer. Having these one-hour online sessions with world leaders in Cancer Imaging has kept me on the cutting edge of radiological knowledge. Topics covered in the lectures have triggered enthusiastic (and educational) discussions in our department, quite a few times.”

Zuhir B. from Amsterdam, the Netherlands attended ten (10) ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Arelys Y.

“I am glad I have participated in the ESOI live webinars last year. I found the lectures highly qualified and updated. The multidisciplinary approach improved my knowledge in the oncological field and gave me useful tools for the reports.
I would like to congratulate the organisers and speakers for such a great job.“

Arelys Y. from Madrid, Spain attended eleven (11) ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Mahesh Ch.

“I joined ESOI during residency. The webinars helped me to acquire the core knowledge of oncology imaging and understand the standard check lists for reporting. They often conduct interdisciplinary approach on a topic, which imparts an approach for diagnosis and treatment. The membership fee is pretty affordable. At the end of the year, you get the webinar certificate after fulfilling their requirements which is pretty exciting. I would highly encourage everyone involved in cancer management to be a part of ESOI.”

Mahesh Ch. from Dhaka, Bangladesh attended 13 ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Alessandra B.

“I appreciated the ESOI webinars as a high quality, cutting-edge and multidisciplinary didactic material in Oncologic Imaging and Interventional Radiology. In the everyday busy practice, the easy accessibility from any device of the live and recorded sessions is a great opportunity for continuous training and updating. I would recommend them both to residents and to radiologists who want to deepen their knowledge of Oncological Imaging.”

Alessandra B. from Ancona, Italy attended all 14 ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Etienne R.

“I would like to compliment ESOI on the outstanding quality of their oncological imaging webinars. ESOI’s webinars are well organized and presented by leading radiologists in their respective fields. With ESOI, I am kept up to date with the latest oncological imaging and reporting guidelines and this is further complemented by the multidisciplinary approach webinars. I am privileged to have access to ESOI’s webinars in South Africa and I can highly recommend all radiologists with an interest in oncological imaging to join ESOI to also benefit from the highly educational webinars.”

Etienne R. from Port Elizabeth, South Africa attended twelve (12) ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Ivana K.

“I’m a radiology resident with special interest in abdominal and pelvic oncologic imaging and attending ESOI Webinars during 2019 really enriched my knowledge in this field. With these state-of-the-art lectures provided by dedicated professionals, ESOI gives young radiologists the opportunity to be up to date with current guidelines throughout the whole year. I wanted to increase my confidence and advance my MRI skills and I believe this program significantly improved my clinical practice. I kindly recommend ESOI Webinars and encourage other residents to take part in 2020 program, because being an active ESOI member you can benefit from sharing experience with exceptional educators.”

Ivana K. from Zagreb, Croatia attended ten (10) ESOI webinars in 2019

Webinar Testimonial – Ludovit S.

“For me the biggest impact of these webinars was that they helped me to progress in my career. These webinars showed me what is possible in the field of radiology and gave me the lead to learn new things, helped create a MDTB, changing protocols, leaving old habits and catching up in radiation protection and patient management.
If you are a young resident and want to know what significant field you have chosen or want to stay up to date in oncologic imaging, to learn new things I can only recommend to join ESOI.”

Ludovit S. from Dunajska Streda, Slovakia attended 13 ESOI webinars in 2019

Upcoming Webinar

Spinal tumours

L. van Hauwe, Antwerp/BE
August 25, 2020

18:00 CEST


The purpose of this webinar is to illustrate the imaging findings in patients presenting with spinal tumours. Primary tumours of the spine are actually uncommon. In establishing the differential diagnosis for a spinal mass lesion, location is the most important feature, but clinical presentation and the age of the patient (and gender) can also be helpful. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) plays a central role in imaging of spinal tumours, as it allows tumours to be classified as extradural, intradural-extramedullary or intramedullary, which is very useful to accurately differentiate between these lesions. In the evaluation of lesions of the osseous spine both computed tomography (CT) and MRI are important.

We will describe the most common spinal tumours in detail. In general, extradural lesions are the most common with metastasis being the most frequent. Intradural tumours are rare, and the majority is extramedullary, with meningiomas and nerve sheath tumors being the most frequent. Intramedullary tumours are even more rare. Astrocytomas and ependymomas comprise the majority of the intramedullary tumors.

• To give an overview on spinal tumours, both in adults and in children.
• To provide an approach in the differential diagnosis of mass lesions within the spinal canal, i.e. intramedullary and intradural extramedullary tumours.
• To describe the radiological findings of the different types of spinal tumours.

Dr. Luc van den Hauwe is a neuroradiologist, working part-time in a general hospital in the North of Antwerp/BE (AZ KLINA, Brasschaat) and part-time at the Antwerp University Hospital, Antwerp/BE. He graduated magna cum laude as MD from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Antwerp, Antwerp/BE, in 1989. He is a board-certified radiologist since 1995.
His main fields of interests within neuroradiology are advanced MR imaging techniques (diffusion, perfusion, spectroscopy) in brain tumor imaging, multiple sclerosis and traumatic brain injury with a focus on the introduction of new techniques in the daily clinical practice.
Dr. van den Hauwe is author or co-author of over 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers and more than 15 book chapters. He received several awards, including the Scientific Award of the European Society of Neuroradiology 1993, Ziedses des Plantes Prize for best oral presentation. For his research on the role of MRI (in vivo and in vitro) in brain tumours, the University of Antwerp awarded him the prize “Upjohn 1994”.
He has been active as a teacher in many national and international scientific meetings such as the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR), European Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and Biology (ESMRMB), … and courses such as the Pierre Lasjaunias European Course of Neuroradiology (ECNR), European School of Radiology (ESOR), and the Erasmus Course on Magnetic Resonance Imaging (EMRI).
He is an active member of many scientific societies and organizations.
