ESOI Educational Webinars
dedicated to Oncologic Imaging

M. D'Anastasi, Msida/MT
D. Regge, Turin/IT
G. Zamboni, Verona/IT

Since 2015 ESOI has been proudly offering high quality webinars on various topics related to oncologic imaging. The live webinars have been very successful, well visited and have been attracting international participants from all over the world. In addition to the live broadcast, the recorded webinars are uploaded to the Member Area with a one month delay so they can be (re)viewed by active ESOI members at their own convenience.

The 2019 webinar programme will place great focus on multidisciplinarity and two interventional oncology webinars will be added to the monthly sessions.

ESOI webinars last approximately 60 minutes (45 min. presentation and 15 min. for discussion/questions).

The first two webinars of the year are open to anyone interested. Further webinars are open to active ESOI members only.

Sponsored by Bracco

The ESOI Webinar Certificate will be issued at the end of the calendar year.

In order to obtain the certificate, active ESOI full / allied sciences members must attend a minimum of 8 webinars in 2019.
ESOI resident members must attend the 2 dedicated Young Radiologists Webinars in addition to 7 other webinars, so a total of 9 webinars.
In addition to the attendance during the live webinars, the assessment tests following each individual webinar must be submitted. To qualify for the certificate, at least 70% of the submitted questions must be answered correctly.

ESOI/ESSO/ESTRO Joint Multidisciplinary Webinar
Rectal cancer: A multidisciplinary approach to imaging

R. Beets-Tan, Amsterdam/NL (Radiologist)
N. Figueiredo, Lisbon/PT (Surgeon)
R. Glynne-Jones, Northwood/UK (Radiation Oncologist)
April 24, 2019
18:00 CET

Webinar Description
MR Imaging of rectal cancer influences treatment decision and impacts patient’s outcome. It is crucial that radiologists not only understand how to read and interpret images but also know how these findings impact clinical decision making. This joint ESOI/ESTRO/ESSO webinar approaches imaging from a multidisciplinary view. Attendees will learn about the multidisciplinary team management, the relevant questions from clinicians and how radiologists can answer these. The teachers will be a team of surgeon, radiation oncologist and radiologist experts in rectal cancer management. Short lectures will be followed by case based discussions among the teachers and attendees, in this way simulating a multidisciplinary meeting.

About the Presenters
Prof. Regina Beets-Tan is the immediate past-president of ESOI, 2nd vice president of ESR and chairwoman of the Department of Radiology at The Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam. Her research focus is multidisciplinary, in MRI of rectal cancer and has an international track record. Beets-Tan collaborates with multidisciplinary research teams worldwide and has authored several international guidelines on rectal cancer imaging and management. 

Prof. Nuno Figueiredo has been Head of the Champalimaud Surgical Centre since it opened in 2015, as well as continuing his role as an internationally renowned colorectal surgeon.
Following his Fellowship in advanced laparoscopic surgery, which he undertook in Belgium, and a one-year position as Honorary Consultant Surgeon in the Minimally Invasive Colorectal Unit of Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth, he became a certified robotic surgeon in December 2015.
In 2013, Prof. Figueiredo won the Pfizer Award for Fundamental Research and he has continued this interest in investigation with several projects, including personalised colorectal cancer therapy using novel patient-derived xenografts in zebrafish.

Dr. Rob Glynne-Jones (FRCP, FRCR) is Macmillan Lead Clinician in Gastrointestinal cancer at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre.
His major research interest is in the treatment of rectal and anal cancer, and chemoradiation. Current areas of research include investigation of resistance mechanisms/predictive factors for response to chemoradiation in anal and rectal cancer, DCE-MRI changes, examination of tumour interstitial pressure and the development of novel chemoradiation regimens. He is also interested in defining an optimal field size for radiation for different stages.

This webinar is only open to active ESOI, ESSO and ESTRO members. Should you be in doubt of your current ESOI membership status, please contact the ESOI office at
