A stimulating and engaging online learning experience – reviewing cases with the experts!

The ICIS Interactive series is designed as an advanced cancer imaging course for Radiologists, who would like to gain deeper understanding into the imaging of specific cancers through case-based learning. The courses in this series have been rated excellent by many participants.

This online masterclass will be delivered across two consecutive half-days (the afternoons of 12 & 13 November 2020), each consisting of a four-hour session during which two topics will be covered. Presentation of each topic will commence with a lecture followed by mentored review of 8-10 carefully selected cases to facilitate hands-on case-based learning.

A comprehensive workbook to reinforce learning is provided to guide participants through the cases, with each case chosen to illustrate specific learning points. This will be available as a downloadable PDF document (circa.180 pages), or for an additional £35 charge we will courier a printed & bound copy of the workbook for you to work through during the course.

By the end of the course, all participants will have benefitted from mentored case-based learning of 35 - 40 cases, each chosen with specific learning points.

All delegates will be emailed a CPD certificate on completion of the course.

Participants must have access to two screens for the duration of the course to achieve the optimum experience. This could include two screens linked to a computer (desktop / laptop) or a single screen on a computer (desktop / laptop) and an additional separate mobile device (e.g. computer tablet). One of the screens will run the image viewing platform, while the other will provide interactive dialogue using Zoom.

For viewing all cases, participants will receive a unique URL and personalised login credentials to access the online portal. The portal uses sophisticated browser-based technology, works with a very broad selection of Operating Systems and devices, and allows for complete access with zero install footprint.

The minimal stable broadband connection required to access the Application Portal is 2Mbs or higher. The portal will work with any operating system capable of running HTML5-enabled browsers including, but not limited to:

  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 11

Concurrently, Zoom will be used to deliver the introductory lecture for each of the four topics, and will enable interaction with faculty members throughout the whole course. A minimum bandwidth of 1.2Mbs is recommended for Zoom. 

Online technical support will be available throughout both afternoons, with a dedicated one-hour technical support session before the course commences on 12 November to ensure connectivity. If we discover that your connectivity is not satisfactory, you may not be able to join the course.

If you are concerned that your bandwidth connection speed is not sufficient, we can provide testing access to a remote system as part of the pre-event support. Bandwidth information can be checked using a quick speed test, e.g. https://fast.com

This course provides 8 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists, UK.

All delegates will be emailed a CPD certificate of attendance on completion of the course.
