Read with the Experts, Learn with the Best!

We are delighted to launch our new learning series 'Read with the Experts'.

“Reading with the Experts: Liver Imaging” will provide participants with the unique opportunity to personally preview selected cases before joining with world-renowned experts in liver imaging to formally review and discuss these interesting examples, carefully selected by the faculty to demonstrate learning points. Following the two one-hour review seminars, participants will have a further 48 hours to review the cases and reflect personally on specific points highlighted during the discussions.

The learning objectives of this new dynamic learning experience will provide participants with the opportunity to:

  • Experience real-world practice
  • Recognise features of more common liver diseases
  • Enhance their knowledge of liver imaging and understand anomalies in a day-to-day context
  • Identify unusual liver lesions and potential mimics of liver disease

'Read with the Experts, Learn with the Best!

'Read with the Experts: Liver Imaging' - Wednesday 20 October 2021: 12:00-13:00 (BST) and Thursday 21 October 2021, 13:00-14:00 (BST)

This new online case-based learning series will take place over two one-hour sessions, and each delegate will have access to full DICOM images on a personal virtual PACS workstation to fully benefit. You will be granted access to review cases for 72 hours ahead of the sessions, and follow-up in your own time with the opportunity to review each case for a further 48 hours to reinforce learning. About 20 cases will be discussed over the two hours, taught by world-renowned teachers to allow all delegates to learn with the best. This online format is designed to allow maximum international access to our pioneering teaching format. This is especially since high quality live case-based teaching may not be readily accessible in some parts of the world.

Our 'Read with the Experts' series is suitable for residents, fellows and general radiologists but may also be of interest to senior, specialist, or faculty staff to test their diagnostic skills!

Delegates are advised to use two screens on the day, which can be a PC and tablet/laptop. Please read the joining instructions for full details.

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

Joining Instructions

Access for online personal preview of cases will be granted to participants 72 hours before “Reading with the Experts” and for the subsequent 48 hours to allow for personal reflection.

For the duration of the online case review sessions with the faculty, participants must have access to two screens. A minimum desktop screen size of 22” (ideally 1920x1080 HD) is recommended for image viewing, while the other (potentially smaller) device will enable interactive dialogue with the faculty using Zoom. Options 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).

For viewing all cases, participants will receive a unique URL and personalised login credentials to access the online application 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. 

 A broadband connection (rather than WiFi) is strongly recommended with a minimum connection of 8 Mbps to access the Application Portal. 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, whilst “Reading with the Experts”, Zoom will be used for the faculty to discuss the selected cases and to enable interaction throughout the case review. Additional minimum bandwidth of 4 Mbps is recommended for Zoom, i.e. a combined non-shared bandwidth of 12 Mbps should provide a requisite learning experience.

Please be sure to watch our demonstration video for instructions on how to navigate the cases, and get the most out of the opportunity to preview the cases before the reading sessions.

Online technical support will be available throughout the course to ensure connectivity. Any connection issues during the preview phase should be reported immediately by emailing: admin@cancerimagingsociety.org.uk

If you are concerned that your bandwidth connection speed may not be sufficient, we suggest a quick speed test using, for example, https://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/ to ascertain upload and download speeds.  

This course provides 2 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.
