Masterclass in Oncological whole-body MRI

 A collaboration between the International Cancer Imaging Society (ICIS), the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA) & SACO 2023

      Friday, 1 September 2023
      Cape Town International Convention Centre
        This ICISi Masterclass will be delivered as a one-day teaching course, highlighting the application of WB-MRI in cancer. Professor Anwar Padhani will be onsite to guide and assist participants first-hand, whilst the other faculty will join remotely.


        This course is designed for radiologists interested to learn the daily application of WB-MRI in clinical practice. With modules on disease screening, myeloma, breast and prostate cancers, attendees will become familiar with the emerging roles of the technique for cancer management. Our expert teachers have extensive clinical experience of WB-MRI, will provide image interpretation guidance, as well as showing benefits for both precision health and oncology. Delegates will benefit from mentored hands-on case-based learning with individual workstations. Between 35-40 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!
