This fellowship is designed for Radiologists, who want to learn the state of the art of the use of whole-body MRI in oncology . All aspects of whole-body MRI will be covered, from technical basis and MR protocols, to cancer specific clinical applications. Presentation of each topic will commence with a lecture followed by a review of carefully selected cases, to facilitate case-based learning.

TMC Academy online radiology courses are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone to recreate the face-to-face experience. Online sessions are recorded so that participants can review on their own time following the training.

In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.

This radiology course is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
