Symposium on Imaging Hallmarks of Cancer, 26th – 27th October 2017

Meet the Speakers: Prof. Nicholas Gourtsoyiannis

  1. 29.9.2017

    Professor Gourtsoyiannis is the ESOR Scientific/Educational Director, described as “The visionary guide, the ‘man with the plan’ … not only the intellectual mastermind of ESOR, but also a man with enough energy and courage to bring the project to fruition.(1)

    Prof. Gourtsoyiannis will be delivering the introductory lecture at the Symposium.

    “The European School of Radiology (ESOR) is celebrating the completion of ten years in action. Ten challenging and rewarding years of unfailing commitment and continuous investment in radiological education in Europe and worldwide. Ten years of envisioning, stimulating, engaging, delivering, teaching, tutoring, nurturing, and adding value to radiology.(2)

    In Prof. Gourtsoyiannis’ own words: “We at ESOR are very proud and pleased to be able to build a strong collaboration with the renowned, pioneering and penetrating research institution, the Champalimaud Foundation, in which Prof. Celso Matos, one of the most distinguished researchers on abdominal radiology in Europe, is heading the radiological sciences.

    Joining efforts with a major, inspiring and indeed very successful research institution of [the Champalimaud Foundation’s] calibre, ESOR is aspiring to provide an example of how medical research and education at a high level are inseparable pillars of the way forward in improving patients management, and how such a binding platform may raise the profile of biomedical education to the next level.

    The Symposium on Imaging Hallmarks of Cancer is designed not only for radiologists but for all biomedical professionals interested in acquiring knowledge on cutting-edge methods to diagnose, to treat and to manage cancer patients.

    The learning objectives would incorporate:
    • to learn how to use novel imaging methods to interrogate cancer biology and physiology
    • to envision how translational research may help developing imaging research
    • to become familiar with and understand the added value of image-guided intervention in cancer care.

    A renowned multidisciplinary faculty will provide the delegates with a blend of basic science and the most recent developments in computational, functional, and molecular imaging techniques as well as in the rapidly evolving field of Interventional Oncology.”
