This workshop on abdominal MRI will focus on the typical MRI appearance of lesions of the parenchymal abdominal organs, with special focus on detailed MR anatomy and the role of examination technique. You will learn how to detect and characterize clinically relevant lesions and do an appropriate differential diagnosis.

A unique combination of weekly online lectures, hands-on reporting of more than 40 selected real abdominal MRI cases accompanied by focused self-study and mentor feed-back will help you to improve your MRI diagnostic skills.

This interactive course will give you direct feedback on all your reported cases including case-statistics and annotated image solutions.
