Overview
The ESOI/EORTC workshop is an interactive hands-on course aimed at practising radiologists and radiology residents, focusing on the criteria-based assessment of tumour response to treatment. The course consists of a number of lectures explaining the principles of imaging-based tumour response assessment and several hands-on interactive training workshops using specialised software with common and rare cancer cases encountered in the clinical routine or within clinical trials.



Learning Objectives
- To review the most common imaging criteria for assessment of treatment response

- To review the principles of structured oncologic reporting and the requirements for clinically relevant oncological reports from an oncologist’s perspective
- To achieve hands-on experience in choosing and measuring lesions, assessing tumour response to therapy and avoiding potential pitfalls
- To gain knowledge relevant to radiologists about clinical trials and trial methodology


EORTC Test
Participants will have the unique opportunity to sit for a qualification test on using RECIST 1.1 at the end of the workshop. Successful participants will receive a RECIST qualification certificate from the ESOI and EORTC. Qualified radiologists will then have the option to become independent imaging reviewers for future EORTC studies.



CME Accreditation
Please note that an application for CME accreditation will be submitted to the UEMS-EACCME® and the Landesärztekammer Baden-Württemberg.
