Small Bowel Workshop

Venue: The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel

This is a comprehensive one-day “hands-on” course designed to help you set up an M R enterography service and improve your image interpretation skills. Priority for Wednesday’s workshop will be given to delegates attending the whole meeting. Once again the course is being run in conjunction with the BSGAR annual two-day scientific meeting, allowing radiologists with an interest in gastrointestinal and abdominal imaging to efficiently accumulate relevant CPD credit. Delegate feedback for the 2017 course was very positive.

The course is aimed at consultants and trainees who want to learn a new skill, or build on their existing experience of MR enterography.

Attendees will sit in pairs at iMac workstations running Osirix viewing software. The day will alternate between short lectures and longer “hands-on” case review sessions. Attendees will have the opportunity to review the cases themselves prior to combined group case review at the end of each session.

During the day you will review at least twenty examinations ranging from normal appearances, simple Crohn’s disease, complex Crohn’s disease and its complications, and a range of other small bowel pathologies.

Last years workshop was awarded 6 CPD points.
