This Image Reporting Module for kidney carcinoma is aimed at general radiologists who are interested in boosting their clinical competences in the interpretation and identification of different kidney cancer patterns using images from CT scan cases. The module is made up of five actual cases prepared by Dr. Nicolau.

The simulator enables participants to practise in a real environment, working on cases of kidney tumours, staging, and their post-treatment control. It is a "learning by doing" learning environment which helps users to learn from both their mistakes and correct answers when interpreting the images; once each case has been completed, the user will receive the answers immediately, with comments both on the structured report and on the images in order to reinforce the entire learning process.

By achieving 66% correct answers in each module, the program will be accredited with 2 CME credits from the EACCME.

Learning objectives

  • Recognise abdominal anatomy in order to perform a correct TNM classification and staging of the kidney tumours.
  • Learn to identify the different types of renal tumours.
  • Learn to classify kidney tumours using the indications set out in the 8th edition of the TNM classification for kidney tumours, paying close attention to the data in the image to be analysed.
  • Recognise the essential findings that may influence the various therapeutic options.
