AIm and Target Group


To get knowledge and practical skills to update and optimize the protocols combined with challenged practicing on real key clinical cases for prostate cancer diagnoses on MRI

Target group

  • Radiologists or any professional (technical/clinician) who would like to become more confident on reading or performing  prostate MRI to improve the diagnoses of prostate cancer
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives:

  • To be up-to-date and optimize the MRI protocol for prostate cancer diagnosis

European Course on Advanced Imaging Techniques in Neuroradiology

ESMRMB is happy to announce its collaboration with the European Society of Neuroradiology. The course will be organized in cycles repeating every 2 years. Each cycle consists of 4 modules of 2 to 3 days each. Reduced registration fees for ESMRMB Memebers will be offered.

1st Module

May 6-8, 2021

Course organising committee:
Marion Smits, Edwin Oei, Alexander Leemans
ESNR: Sven Haller, Tarek Yousry, Johan van Goethem

Course venue:


The course faculty consists of clinical and technical experts on fMRI data acquisition, analysis, and interpretation.

The aim of the course

The aim of this course is to convey in-depth knowledge about functional MR imaging (fMRI) with a focus on clinical practice. This advanced MR neuroimaging technique is increasingly applied to the assessment of the healthy and diseased human brain and provides information about the brain’s activity. The course will offer an overview of present methodologies, functional neuroanatomy, and clinical as well as some research applications. These topics are taught using a mixture of lectures, practical data analysis sessions, and small group case discussions. Special attention is given to the interpretation of clinical cases, including results from both task-based presurgical fMRI examinations and more advanced resting-state fMRI studies.

Learning Objectives

Fundamentals of fMRI
• Physiological principles of fMRI
• Blood oxygen level dependent contrast (BOLD) MRI technique and functional MR imaging sequences
• Task-based versus resting state fMRI

Functional Anatomy
• Motor system
• Language system
• Visual system

Experimental and Paradigm Design
• Technical set-up for clinical fMRI

  • Categorical, factorial, parametric designs
  • Blocked versus event-related paradigms
    • Paradigms: development, implementation and pitfallsData Analysis
    • Spatial preprocessing
    • Statistical analysis for task-based and resting-state fMRI

 Clinical application of fMRI
• Presurgical planning of brain tumour and epilepsy patients
• Applications in psychiatric and neurodegenerative disease

• Challenges and pitfalls of fMRI in clinical practice

ESOR (European School of Radiology)

ESMRMB is happy to announce its collaboration with the European School of Radiology (ESOR) – an institution, fulfilling the mission of the European Society of Radiology (ESR) in the field of education. One of its main goals is to assist in harmonising radiological education in Europe. With its wide range of activities ESOR additionally aims to raise standards in the field of scientific radiology, to extend and coordinate teaching resources worldwide and to help young radiologists to achieve the knowledge and skills to fulfil tomorrow’s requirements.
