Radiologists (to-be) who would like to become more confident on staging/restaging rectal cancer on MRI will find this abdominal imaging fellowship useful. This programme of 3 afternoons provides in-depth knowledge in the value of MRI during the management of rectal cancer.

Radiologists (to-be) will learn how to interpret staging and restaging MR images and deal with difficulties by evaluating numerous cases. After attending this course, the participants will not only be able to implement high-quality MR protocol in their own center but also will be able accurately interpret MR images both before and after neoadjuvant treatment.

Each module starts with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real anonymised key cases. After the individual case readings there will be an additional lecture followed by a ‘Questions and Answers’ session.

Participants will also benefit from using Dr. Nougaret's Rectal Cancer Staging Template which is also a take-home tool.

TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.

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.


"Participating in this fellowship was an exceptional experience. Dr. Nougaret's expertise and systematic approach to rectal cancer staging and response assessment were truly enlightening. I wholeheartedly recommend this fellowship to any radiologist looking to deepen their knowledge and confidence in rectal cancer MRI." Olusola Patrick Bello, Consultant Radiologist, Telemedicine Clinic (Fellow, June 2024)

"I sincerely recommend the rectal MRI training. Great lectures and a large practical part make the training at the highest possible level and make it very desirable fore every day practice." Marta Dacka, Zamość, Poland (Fellow, June 2024)

"It was very useful joining the MRI rectum fellowship and learning from a very good mentor. Stephanie put us in the mind set of the surgeon answering their direct relevant clinical questions in staging Ca, rectum, assessment of the therapeutic response and looking for recurrence. It is very useful to know what are the surgeons looking for. Her approach to the cases was systematic and simple."
Dr. Magdy Soliman, Consultant Radiologist (UK) (Fellow, November 2023)
