This course is aimed for residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists interested in Interventional Radiology. It is strictly adhered to Level II of the European Training Curriculum. The main purpose of this course is to familiarise radiologists with the latest advances in Interventional Radiology in order to provide an overview into the broad treatment opportunities in many medical fields including aortic diseases, pulmonary embolism, oncology, and more. The course will consist on 6 talks, each one providing a 40 minutes lasting mix of theory and case presentations. Each session will be followed by a live Q&A section for interaction with the faculty members.

Additionally, there will be one additional talk dedicated to patients communication around an interventional procedure, addressing one crucial point for a successful treatment.

The ESOR foundation courses are intended to help prospective candidates to prepare for the European Diploma in Radiology examination. Attendance does not guarantee acceptance to take the examination or success in the examination but represents for sure a good basis for passing the examination successfully.
