A stimulating and engaging learning experience

With grateful acknowledgement of our Society Corporate Supporters :- 


This 2nd Edition Masterclass in Oncological Whole Body MRI is a brand new one-day work-station based teaching course, which will highlight the application of WB-MRI in cancer.

Workshop–style teaching with individual imaging workstations in small groups will provide participants with a stimulating and highly interactive learning experience.

  ·   Mentored case-based learning of 35 – 40 cases
  ·   Each case chosen to illustrate specific learning points
  ·   Detailed workbook and course material to take home

Learning Objectives for this course:

  ·  To learn how to perform and read WB-MRI scans for disease detection and response assessments.
  ·  To understand how WB-MRI can help maintain health by early disease detection and disease characterisation using the ONCO-RADS standard.
  ·  To discuss guidelines and benefits of WB-MRI in multiple myeloma using the MY-RADS standard.
  ·  To learn about the detection and bone response benefits of WB-MRI in prostate and breast cancer using the MET-RADS standard.

The ICIS Interactive series is designed as an advanced cancer imaging course for Radiologists, who would like to gain deeper understanding into the imaging of specific cancer areas. The courses in this series have been rated excellent by many participants.

The course is limited to 20 participants per class.

Each 1.5 hour session will commence with a lecture followed by a stimulating, interactive and often lively mentored case review of 8 to 10 cases on the workstation. At the end of the day, each participant will have reviewed 35 to 40 cases, each chosen with specific learning points. A comprehensive workbook is provided to guide the participants through the cases.  

Oncological Whole-Body MRI

This second edition Masterclass in Oncological Whole-Body MRI is a one-day workstation based teaching course which will provide a foundational understanding of this specialised technique, imaging optimisation and application for both disease detection and incidental findings in the setting of cancer screening. A focus on myeloma will also highlight patterns of disease.

The comparative value of utilising WB-MRI for the detection of breast and prostate cancer will be demonstrated, along with its use for response assessment in bone disease. Our expert faculty have extensive clinical knowledge and experience of WB-MRI, and delegates will benefit from mentored hands-on case-based learning with individual workstations. Between 35-40 brand new cases will be reviewed, each chosen to illustrate specific learning points, all summarised in a detailed workbook to use on the day and take home!
