General

Learn about the state-of-the-art in oncological imaging from top level presenters all from the comfort of your home/workplace!

Since 2015, ESOI has been proudly offering high quality webinars given by world class speakers on various topics in oncologic imaging. Our live webinars have been very well received by our members with consistently high turnout and engagement from participants all across the globe. After the presentation, you can even ask questions in real time!

ESOI webinars are oriented towards different levels of expertise, a wide array of topics, and are increasingly becoming more multidisciplinary.
A number of our webinars are carried out in collaboration with medical societies such as ESSO and ESTRO as well as other radiological subspecialty societies.
Young radiologists are also included in the webinar series with special sessions addressing relevant topics for residents.

In addition to the live broadcast, the lectures are uploaded to the Member Area (with an approximate one month delay) so they can be (re)viewed by active ESOI members at their own convenience.
To date, we have more than 50 full length lectures (with in-depth discussions and Q&A)!

Webinar Testimonial – Lukas A.

“I have been following ESOI Webinars since their very beginning in 2015. They are a great opportunity to stay up-to-date with state-of-the-art oncologic imaging. The well-chosen topics reflect current opportunities and challenges within the field. I especially appreciate the practical approach of the presenters and the possibility to ask burning questions after each webinar. They are also a great chance to discuss clinically relevant issues with specialists from other fields like surgery. Last but not least, they are all recorded and one can revise some of the more complex points afterwards. Definitely not do be missed!”

ESOI/ESSO/EUSOBI Joint Multidisciplinary Webinar

Breast cancer: A multidisciplinary approach to imaging in neoadjuvant treatment

M. Lobbes, Sittard-Geleen/NL (Radiologist)
M. L. Smidt, Maastricht/NL (Surgeon)
November 11, 2019
18:00 CET

What can I expect from this webinar?

Imaging of breast cancer patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy influences treatment decision and impacts patient’s outcome. In this clinical decision-making process, imaging plays a pivotal role, with various modalities (such as(contrast-enhanced) mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound and breast MRI) being at the disposal of the radiologist. Every modality has its strengths and weaknesses in terms of response monitoring of patients treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy. It is essential that all involved clinicians are aware of these, but also know how these findings impact clinical decision making. This joint ESOI/ ESSO webinar approaches imaging from a multidisciplinary view. Attendees will learn about multidisciplinary team management, the relevant questions from clinicians and how radiologists can answer these by applying different techniques. Short lectures will be followed by case-based discussions among the teachers and attendees, in this way simulating a multidisciplinary meeting.

What will I learn during this webinar?

– Be familiar with the most common imaging appearances of malignant primary SB neoplasms
– Be familiar with the most common imaging appearances of metastatic Sb neoplasms
– Understand the purpose and goal of imaging for each tumor and the optimal methods for detection
– Anticipate related imaging findings in various conditions such as syndromes and mesenteric, nodal and solid visceral characteristics metastatic appearances.

Who will present this webinar?

Dr. Marc Lobbes is the director of the breast imaging center of the Zuyderland Medical Center in Sittard-Geleen, the Netherlands. He has an extensive expertise in all areas of breast imaging, including mammography, tomosynthesis, ultrasound, interventions and breast MRI, including breast PET-MRI. Dr. Lobbes was the first radiologist in the Netherlands to apply contrast-enhanced mammography and has published multiple scientific publications on this topic, including several book chapters. His primary research focus is the application of machine learning in (breast) oncologic imaging, the clinical implementation of contrast-enhanced mammography and MR imaging of the breast and axilla (the latter in close collaboration with dr. Smidt). He is an active member of the Dutch Society of Breast Imaging, member of the scientific counsel of the Dutch Expert Center for Screening and educational board member of the European Society of Breast Imaging (EUSOBI).

Dr. Marjolein Smidt is associate professor surgical oncology at the Maastricht University Medical Centre in Maastricht, The Netherlands, where she co-chairs the Comprehensive Cancer Centre as well as presides GROW research school’s program 2 concerning clinical research. Amongst others, she is a member of the SSO and ESSO scientific program committee and board member of UEMS on breast cancer surgery, which organizes the European exams on breast cancer surgery.
She has extensive knowledge in the field of breast cancer surgery and research.
