  • 4. EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF RADIOLOGY 2010 | www.myesr.org Introducing the eCr 2010 Congress President By Mélisande Rouger In an interview with ECR Today back in March, Professor Małgorzata Szczerbo-Trojanowska from Lublin, Poland, discussed her agenda for next year’s congress. She revealed that ECR 2010 will shed light on imaging and interventions in oncology and clinical emergencies, among other topics, and the congress’s tradition of innovation will be upheld with the introduction of a multidisciplinary symposium and organ-oriented courses. ECRT: How does ECR compare to other radiological congresses? MST: The majority of radiological congresses are focused on one radiological discipline or even a spe- cific narrow subject. ECR is a unique forum addressing and accommodating all radiologists. There are sessions presenting the cutting edge of science in our own field of activity and at the same time there are opportunities to attend sessions presenting progress outside of our own discipline. This is a great advantage of a multidisciplinary meeting, which provides possibilities to keep abreast of developments in other radiological fields. I find it extremely important for every radiologist to be aware of the progress in various fields of our specialty. This knowledge may help to further develop our own field and to choose the modalities best suited to diagnosing our patients. ECRT: What are your ambitions and plans for ECR? MST: Like every president of ECR, I would like to shape a very attractive scientific, educational and social programme. Working together with the Programme Planning Committee we have been trying to create sessions choosing topics that should meet the expectations of all participants. It is well known that every year ECR introduces some innovations. In 2010 we will launch a new type of course that will be organ-oriented. In the coming year, it will be ‘Liver from A to Z’. Experts will show the best, most appropriate imaging methods used in diagnosing a wide range of pathologies of the liver in four sessions. The second innovation is the introduction of a multidisciplinary symposium, which we will start with ‘Managing patients with cancer’. The symposium consists of 4 sessions dedicated to prostate, ovary, colorectal and lung cancer. In each session there will be presentations and discussions between a surgeon, an oncologist and a radiologist. By introducing multidisciplinary symposia we would like to bring closer and enhance exchanges between clinicians and radiologists. Nowadays, if radiologists want to remain the key players in clinical discussions, they should understand the clinical questions and stay updated with advances in disease management. I hope this type of session will emphasise the importance of clinical training in the radiological curriculum. My ambition is that we provide an excellent congress for the participants, the faculty and exhibitors, and that it will contribute to the further growth and development of our specialty.4
  • 5. www.myesr.org | EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF RADIOLOGY 2010ECRT: What will be the main focus of ECR and what will be the scientific highlights regarding newtechnologies presented?MST: ECR 2010 will focus on a number of subjects. Many sessions will be dedicated to imaging andinterventions in oncology. We will also focus on imaging and interventions in clinical emergencies,which will be extensively explored during the congress. There will be a Categorical Course on abdomi-nal emergencies and two Special Focus Sessions: on imaging in polytrauma patients and on paediatricnon-traumatic emergencies. I would like to draw attention to the Professional Challenges Sessions ‘Theradiologist of the future: Challenges and chances’ and ‘Radiology and Law’. The dramatic evolution ofour discipline raises many burning questions which will be presented and discussed by experts.There will be a number of scientific highlights of ECR 2010. Almost every year there is a significantdevelopment deserving to be a highlight of a meeting in the majority of fields of our rapidly evolvingdiscipline. As has already been said, one of ECR’s charms is that it covers all aspects of the specialty.Among the scientific highlights in the field of new technologies there will be New Horizons sessionson MRI in lung diseases, hybrid imaging, and functional imaging in CT as well as sessions dedicated tonew developments in US imaging.ECRT: What do you think of the initiative ‘ESR meets partner disciplines’? Will there be anotherspecialty invited to ECR?MST: I find it a very attractive and useful initiative. Those sessions bring radiologists closer to clini-cians and help them to better understand the information clinicians expect from imaging. On the otherhand we can clarify what information is possible with contemporary imaging, and which modality isbest suited to provide it. The session should enable radiologists to exchange opinions and to improvecommunication with the clinicians. At ECR 2010, neurology will be a partner discipline. 5

  • 11. EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF RADIOLOGY 2010 | www.myesr.org Lymph nodes come under renewed scrutiny By Paula Gould Detection of nodal metastases can make a big difference to the prognosis and management of cancer patients, yet this aspect of oncological imaging seldom gets the attention it deserves. This explains the introduction at ECR 2010 of a new state of the art course on imaging-based lymph node evaluation. The T-word – tumour – usually dominates discussions on involvement, particularly in lung cancer, melanoma, cancer imaging. Can you see a suspect mass? Are you sure and lymphoma.

Here, nodal enlargement recommended course of treatment. is typically taken to indicate the presence of metastatic disease. The sensitivity of conventional CT and MRI for Prof. Jelle Barentsz, professor of radiology at the the detection of lymph node metastases is only around University Hospital Nijmegen, the Netherlands, will be 30%, though. As a result, surgical lymph node dissection is championing the cause of this often overlooked aspect sometimes used to check whether a cancer has spread. of oncological imaging at ECR 2010.

Such images can be used to guide promising results. In particular, the technique’s high selective radiation therapy. (Provided by J. Barentsz) negative predictive value means that surgery can be ruled out if lymph node involvement is not seen on imaging. ‘Just in case’ lymph node dissections should no longer be required, saving time and money and sparing patients unnecessary anxiety and discomfort. Regulatory approval for lymph node imaging with ferumoxtran-10 has yet to be granted. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound is another up-and-coming strategy. This works best when visualising lymph nodes that are close to ultrasound transducer, Barentsz said. Patterns of enhancement are being used to identify small metastases in small lymph nodes, the ‘holy grail’ of lymph node imaging. “I want this course to show that lymph node imaging is back, thanks to developments in ultrasound, PET, contrast agent development, and MRI,” he noted. “I would like to revitalise radiologists’ interest in lymph nodes by showing them not just state-of-the-art techniques but the state of the future art, too.” 13

EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF RADIOLOGY 2010 | www.myesr.org emergency room experts lay out options for polytrauma imaging By Paula Gould Multiple injuries to identify, multiple modalities to choose from, and the clock is already ticking. Effective management of polytrauma patients is undoubtedly a challenge for radiologists. Ready access to equipment, robust diagnostic protocols, and rapid decision-making are essential to a successful outcome. Speakers at ECR 2010 will explain how this can be achieved. Road traffic accidents in Europe lead to around 40,000 patient management. An ultrasound scan can be completed deaths and well over 1.5 million injuries every year. Many quickly at a patient’s bedside, or even at the site of an accident, of these accident victims will be admitted to hospital with providing important information about abdominal injuries. multiple internal and external injuries. Rapid diagnosis of If the patient has other injuries, however, then why not go the most serious traumatic damage and prompt treatment directly to CT? may be a matter of life or death. “Many people, including myself, say that a very fast CT The critical role that radiologists can play in the survey of the critical regions of the body might be better management of polytrauma patients will be the subject of a for the patient than just a simple x-ray/ultrasound tandem Special Focus session at ECR 2010.

And in the face of constant two years while decreasing general training to three years. evolution in medicine, the role radiologists will play in innovative multidisciplinary fields such as molecular Radiologists now also need to address challenges brought imaging needs to be discussed now. This is what a by the imaging technique of the future: molecular imaging. professional challenges session will offer to do at ECR 2010. One difficulty they must face is finding their place in a multidisciplinary environment. First, the control of PET To prepare future radiologists, it is necessary to update scanning, a widely used modality in molecular imaging, the curriculum for training in radiology, bearing in mind sparks off turf battles with nuclear medicine in most alarming demographic projections. The next ten years European countries. Then, radiologists are operating within will indeed see a significant decrease in the number of multidisciplinary teams together with physicians, biologists, radiologists in Europe, which will have adverse effects on physicists and chemists, but their role in this research the quality of healthcare. In France, restricted access to work is not necessarily essential. They have been involved medical universities through admission examinations has in the early steps thanks to pioneers such as Prof. Gabriel already led to a reduction in the workforce. Combined with Krestin, founder of the European Institute for Biomedical the looming retirement of the last baby boomers, this will Imaging Research (EIBIR), who will present the chapter leave radiology departments short of professionals. “This on molecular imaging at ECR 2010.

We need to be phase, Grenier believes. But for this, they must absolutely aware of that today to prepare ourselves for what’s coming,” secure their place in research teams as of today. said Prof. Philippe Grenier, who will chair the session. Finally, radiology could defend itself better in turf battles Constant progress in medical imaging and the development and to the authorities if it communicated more effectively of new therapeutic and diagnostic strategies mean that and efficiently. “I think radiologists in general do not yet some subspecialties need to be better represented in realise how important it is to show the efficiency and quality the curriculum.
