Master in Oncologic Imaging Examination
Free online attendance for ESOI members!

Monday, November 02 | Wednesday, November 04 | Thursday, November 05 | Friday, November 06
13:45-18:00 CET each day

Dear ESOI member,

I am pleased to share an educational opportunity offered by the Master in Oncologic Imaging of the University of Pisa in cooperation with ESOI.

Four webinars will be broadcasted next week on Monday, November 02, Wednesday, November 04, Thursday, November 05 and Friday, November 06. Each session starts at 13:45 (CET) and ends at 18:00 (CET).

Each webinar will include a series of lectures of the Master students on mixed topics in oncologic imaging, from the application of new technologies, as radiomics and image processing, to cancer staging and re-staging, and single or multiple cases presentation.

Each session will be moderated by Prof. Emanuele Neri, Chair of the ESOI Research Committee, with the active participation, in the Q&A session, of the members of the Evaluation Committee.

The Evaluation Committee is composed by renewed experts in the field of oncologic imaging, including also members of the ESOI Board.

I look forward to your participation to the ESOI-University of Pisa joint event.
ESOI President
Prof. Andrea Laghi

EACR-ESOI Joint Conference
on Imaging Cancer

NEW DATE: June 29-30, 2021

The EACR Conference Committee met recently and after a lengthy discussion, decided that an in-person conference next June is too high risk and they do not think large amounts of people will want to travel internationally to conferences at that time. The Committee therefore decided to host EACR-ESOI Imaging Cancer 2021 as a virtual conference only. The new virtual conference will have a different format to the free event we held this July. The programme will take place over two afternoons and will include 7 speakers, 4 proffered papers and virtual posters. The new programme has not been confirmed yet but it is expected that it would include speakers from our original line-up. The EACR are proud of how our virtual conferences are developing, and we are starting to incorporate more of the networking and interactive elements that make in-person EACR conferences so highly rated by participants. We are confident we can create an engaging and valuable virtual conference from the foundations we have made.

What can I expect from the workshop?

The ESOI/EORTC workshop is an interactive hands-on course aimed at practising radiologists and radiology residents, focusing on the criteria-based assessment of tumour response to treatment. The course consists of a number of lectures explaining the principles of imaging-based tumour response assessment and several hands-on interactive training workshops using specialised software with common and rare cancer cases encountered in the clinical routine or within clinical trials.

What can I learn during this workshop?

– To review the most common imaging criteria for assessment of treatment response
– To review the principles of structured oncologic reporting and the requirements for clinically relevant oncological reports from an oncologist’s perspective
– To achieve hands-on experience in choosing and measuring lesions, assessing tumour response to therapy and avoiding potential pitfalls
– To gain knowledge relevant to radiologists about clinical trials and trial methodology

What can I expect from the programme of the workshop?

Please note that the detailed programme of the 2.5 day workshop will be published in due time!

What is the RECIST qualification?

Participants will have the unique opportunity to sit for a qualification test on using RECIST 1.1 at the end of the workshop. Successful participants* will receive a RECIST qualification certificate from the ESOI and EORTC. Qualified imaging physicians will then have the option to become independent imaging reviewers for future EORTC studies.

*RECIST qualification certificates can only be delivered to imaging physicians (radiologists or nuclear medicine physicians) who successfully completed the test at the end of the course.

Certificates of attendance will be delivered to all participants.

Will I receive credits for attending the workshop?

An application for European CME credits (ECMEC®) will be submitted to the EACCME®.

Please note:
Due to UEMS regulations, attendees can only claim CME credits for sessions that have actually been attended during the event. Attendees will need to evaluate each attended session for which they would like to receive and claime the credits.

Confirmation of attendance
Each participant who picked up their name badge will receive a confirmation of attendance.

How can I register for the workshop?

Registration to the workshop will open in May 2021. Please check back for further information or contact the ESOI Office to request pre-registration and save your place.

How much is the registration fee?

We offer reduced fees for ESOI members as well as members in training below the age of 36.
The registration fees will be announced in due time.
