Description
Video-based course (recorded 2012)

"CT and MRI of pancreatic tumours: imaging features before, during and after treatment"
Speaker: Riccardo Manfredi (Verona, Italy)
Learning objectives:
• to understand the role of CT and MRI for the detection and characterization of malignant pancreatic tumours
• to learn about the performance of CT and MRI for staging pancreatic cancer and know the imaging findings relevant for clinical decision making
• to be familiar with the imaging findings of complications that may arise following pancreatic surgery and understand how to treatment sequelae can be distinguished from recurrent pancreatic tumour

"Pathways of rectal cancer spread and relevant treatment options"
Speaker: Cornelius Van de Velde (Leiden, Netherlands)
Learning objectives:
• to learn about the features of tumour spread according to stage, histology and tumour location
• to understand what surgeons will do with the anatomical information from imaging
• to learn about new organ saving treatments

"Imaging rectal cancer"
Speaker: Regina Beets-Tan (Maastricht, Netherlands)
Learning objectives:
• to understand the role EUS, CT and MRI for primary staging and know the relevant imaging anatomy
• to learn about the imaging features relevant for clinical decision making
• to know the performance of CT, PET/CT, MRI and diffusion weighted MRI for the assessment of treatment response during and after chemoradiotherapy
• to understand the pitfalls in interpretation

"Imaging guided adaptation: before, during and after treatment"
Speaker: Vincenco Valentini (Rome, Italy)
Learning objectives:
• to learn how imaging helps to tailor multi-modality treatment at the onset
• to learn how imaging helps to tailor multi-modality treatment along the treatment
• to learn how imaging helps to tailor follow-up after the treatment
