Mediterranean Meeting of Clinical Imaging - Orosei - Nùgoro

Incontro Mediterraneo di Imaging Clinico

SardegnaThis scientific meeting has brought  together a number of international experts, who work in the fields of percutaneous ablative therapies for tumours, ultrasound imaging and the diagnosis of osteomuscular disease.

Percutaneous therapy for primitive cancer of the liver is widespread throughout the world and can rely on a large number of case-studies; but some clinical problems are still under debate.  One of the principal experts in the world (Dr. Tito Livraghi) will illustrate the most recent guidelines.

Contrast enhanced  ultrasound  rests on the knowledge gained particularly in studies on focal hepatic disease; new knowledge acquired enables physiopathological aspects of vascularization of the lesions and the organ to be explained.

Contrast enhanced ultrasound enables disease to be assessed  in other organs  and clinical problems to be weighed up, such as that of the oncological patient.  A review of new knowledge will enable the situation to be brought up to date.

Magnetic Resonance and Ultrasonography are replacing traditional radiology more and more in studies on osteomuscular/tendon disease.  Experts on an international level will permit the new frontiers of integrated diagnostics in this field to be traced.  The presence of guests from the Catalan shores of the Mediterranean will allow a Mediterranean network to be created through which experience may be exchanged and collaboration fostered; the knowledge of  the others is at the basis of any knowledge.
