ESCR EDUCATIONAL WEBINAR 08
"The oncological heart"
Wednesday, October 17, 2018, 17:00 CEST
Speaker: Prof. Antonio Esposito, Milan/IT
Moderator: Prof. Tim Leiner, Utrecht/NL
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.
- Prevalence of different cardiac masses
- Appropriate MR and CT protocols to study the heart in case of suspected cardiac masses
- Differential diagnosis of cardiac masses with MR and CT
About the speaker
Antonio Esposito is Associate Professor of Radiology at Vita-Salute San Raffaele University and Deputy-Director of the Experimental Imaging Center of San Raffaele Scientific Institute (SRSI).
He has long time experience in the field of body application of advanced imaging with MRI and CT, with a particular focus on cardiovascular applications. He developed an intensive clinical and preclinical research on these issues, with more than one hundred full papers published on highly impacted scientific journals. He is the responsible of cardiovascular imaging in the Department of Radiology of the and San Raffaele Hospital of Milan. He is also the responsible of the Preclinical Imaging Facility of the SRSI equipped with CT, MRI, Optical and US imaging technologies for the experimental study of small animal models of diseases. He leads a multidisciplinary team of researcher working in the facility, including radiologists, physicists, bioengineers, biologists and technicians.
Registration is open and free for all active ESCR members.
