International Day of Radiology (IDoR)
November 8th marks the day that Wilhelm Röntgen discovered the existence of X-rays in 1895. Since 2012, a joint initiative of ESR, RSNA and ACR celebrates this day as the INTERNATIONAL DAY OF RADIOLOGY. Let’s celebrate together!

ESCR EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR
"The oncological heart"
Join us on Wednesday, October 17, 2018, at 17:00 CEST.
Details of the webinar
Speaker: Prof. Antonio Esposito, Milan/IT
Moderator: Prof. Tim Leiner, Utrecht/NL
Title: "The oncological heart"
The heart is an underestimated site of distant metastasis of different solid tumours. The diffusion of very fast CT scanners, which provide flawless images of the heart also without cardiac synchronization, together with the increased use of hybrid imaging (PET/CT, PET/MR) in the staging and follow-up of different solid cancer, have improved our capability to detect cardiac metastasis. Primary cardiac tumours are rare and more frequently benign. Cardiac MR and CT imaging have a fundamental role in the differential diagnosis of cardiac masses and in the characterization of primary cardiac tumours. Particularly, the non-invasive differentiation of the benign or malignant nature and the accurate definition of the relationship of the mass with the different cardiac structures and tissues, represent fundamental information for the most appropriate management of the single patient. This lecture will explore the MR and CT role and capability in this setting.
