These courses aim to convey an in-depth knowledge about MR imaging of the abdomen. The topics covered include modern MRI techniques and updated MR applications for diagnosing focal and diffuse liver disease as well as recent developments in MR imaging of the pancreas and biliary tract. The course also focuses on MR imaging of the GI tract, the kidneys, adrenal glands, prostate and bladder. A team of renowned teachers with expert knowledge in abdominal imaging ensures a high quality teaching programme and looks forward to welcoming you to one of the two courses offered in 2007.
