Royal Marsden Imaging Perspectives

Event Date:
21 June 2019
08:30 to 17:00

The eleventh Imaging Perspectives course hosted by the Royal Marsden focuses on Tumour Response Assessment: RECIST 1.1 and beyond.

About the course

The enormous complexity of drugs and clinical trials is taking us to RECIST 1.1 and beyond. This year’s course aims to outline commonly used and evolving response assessment criteria with interactive case discussion and voting pads as well as an introduction to more advanced imaging for clinical trials.

Who should attend?

This course is designed for consultant radiologists and oncologists, specialist registrars, radiographers and all professionals involved in oncology.

Who’s on the teaching faculty?

The faculty is comprised of world leading specialists from The Royal Marsden, Cambridge University, Guy’s & St. Thomas’, and Mount Vernon Hospitals. MINT Medical will host a lunchtime symposium with demonstration of software providing informatics solutions and the introduction of response assessment criteria into routine radiology workflow.

When and where?

The course will be held on Friday 21 June 2019 from 08:30 to 17:00

The Royal College of Physicians, 11 St Andrews Place, London. NW1 4LE
