For the Riziv/inami, 21 Accreditation Points, Including 3 Ethics & Economy Points Have Been Requested and Are Currently in Their Last Stage of Acceptance. Description: Radiology has always been a rapidly evolving specialty, closely linked to technical innovations but also actively contributing to a better understanding of pathophysiological processes in a wide variety of diseases. This is actually especially true in the field of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging, where new techniques including e.g. parametric MR mapping for tissue characterisation, non-invasive CT-based fraction flow reserve calculations, and evolving insights in the evaluation and treatment of valvular heart disease with CT/MR are leading to improved diagnostic possibilities and better patient care. The current annual meeting will provide plenty of opportunities to learn the latest insights into cutting-edge clinical imaging applications, not only through lectures by respected speakers, but also through a variety of dedicated workshops on contemporary topics. Finally, the rise of artificial intelligence and big data is undeniable, with a growing impact on the workflow and position of the radiologist. Dedicated sessions will provide the necessary insights relevant to clinical practice. They are also very proud to, for the first time, provide special sessions co-organised by the new ESCR Young Club. This Young Club, introduced during the ESTI/ESCR 2018 meeting, constitutes the latest initiative of the ESCR to reach out to young members, giving them a platform for discussion and education. While the ESCR meeting remains an event covering the latest imaging insights, basic refresher courses will not be forgotten, delivered with the same high quality and attention to detail as you are used from the ESCR. Workshops: IMPORTANT NOTE: Attendance to one or more workshops requires an active/paid congress registration. An additional workshop fee amounts to 10,00€ per workshop. Due to the limited number of places, early booking is recommended.

Polycystic Ovary, Metabolic Syndrome and Obesity is organized by BT Congress and will be held from Nov 25 - 26, 2019 at Royal Academy of Medicine of Belgium, Bruxelles, Brussels, Belgium. Course Description: The impacts of polycystic ovary syndrome, metabolic syndrome and obesity are more and more evident in our daily practice. All around the world the incidence of excess weight and insulin resistance in patients is on the rise, both of which have a major impact not only on the reproductive process, but also on the quality and duration of life, as well as the dominance of diseases. Although these issues are rooted in genetics, they can also originate in fetal life, a variable quality/quantity of available nutrients, and/or reduced physical activity. The primary role is to detect and tackle these diseases in order to correct their impact on the female body, and their relationship with fertility, pregnancy, cardiovascular diseases and gynecological cancers. This course will address all of these aspects, covering all ages from adolescence to the post-menopause life stage. Furthermore, it will offer a unique chance to interact directly with course leaders, working in small groups on specific problems related to clinical cases, new technologies and treatment strategies. This two-day course is provided by the ISGRE as part of its ongoing commitment to Continuing Medical Education, and represents a fantastic opportunity to update your knowledge and clinical skill set.
