Vienna, Austria

COURSES AND SEMINARS

Lymphoma

Description

Chairs: L. Ceriani, CH - S. Stroobants, BE


As a joint initiative, the European School of Nuclear Medicine and the European School of Oncology are pleased to announce the first edition of the ESNM/ESO course on 18FDG PET/CT in lymphoma.
There is a growing demand for academic education for oncologists/haematologists and nuclear physicians to increase their competence in interpreting PET-CT findings and using these data in the staging and treatment process. The recent publication of the consensus paper of the International Conference on Malignant Lymphomas - Imaging Working Group about the role of imaging together with the updated staging classification of malignant lymphomas (Lugano Classification, JCO 2014) confirmed the pivotal role of 18FDG PET-CT in the management of the lymphoproliferative diseases. Furthermore, the need to apply standard specific criteria to assure the best use of hybrid imaging in clinical studies as well as in clinical practice will be discussed.
The course is designed as a forum for oncologists/haematologists and nuclear physicians who seek to expand their knowledge and competence in interpreting PET-CT findings and using these data in staging and treating lymphoma patients.


TARGET GROUP
The course is open to nuclear physicians, oncologists/haematologists and other specialists who seek training in the use of PET-CT imaging in the evaluation of patients with lymphomas, whether for daily practice or in a clinical research setting.
To guarantee high interactivity, attendance will be limited to 20 participants.


MAIN TOPICS
• Analysis of PET-CT data
• Image interpretation and description
• Classification
• Reporting and integration in the response assessment as well as practical sections covering
• Hodgkin lymphoma
• Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma
• Follicular lymphoma
• Primary mediastinal lymphoma


LEARNING OBJECTIVES
After the course the participants should:
• Improve interpretation skills in the evaluation of 18FDG PET-CT scans in patients with different types of lymphomas
• Learn how to implement the novel Lugano Classification for staging and response assessment
• Understand how to translate information into a nuclear medicine report that is clinically relevant
Learning objectives for each lecture are available
