Welcome words

Dear colleagues and friends,

Due to the global covid crisis, the OIC – Oncologic Imaging Course 2020 could not be organised as planned. This unfortunate decision was necessary to ensure the safety and health of our community and faculty from all over the world.

In order to stay in contact with our members, colleagues and friends the board decided to offer an online event, ESOI Educational Days 2020, instead.
Interesting lectures and hot topics such as – Challenges of cancer imaging in the COVID-19 era, Highlights from the originally planned OIC 2020 programme, Future of oncologic reporting and interesting online workshops will be offered in September 2020. Many renowned speakers from all over the world confirmed their participation and the entire ESOI/OIC board hopes to be able to welcoming you to our upcoming Educational Days 2020.

On behalf of ESOI board and faculty
best regards,
Andrea Laghi (ESOI President)

Live event

The ESOI Educational Days 2020 will be a live event only. Lectures will NOT be available to watch afterwards.


We would like to thank our sponsors 2020 for their valuable support:
