Objectives


This 2-year Master program will stress the utility and importance of ultrasound in the workflow of the digestive surgeon and radiologist where it can become, along with CT and MRI, the eye of the practitioner to see and target the patient’s disease. The program covers the entire spectrum of diagnostic surgical and interventional radiology.

 

The curriculum is designed for trainees (radiologists or surgeons) to acquire the principles and advanced techniques in abdominal interventions in adults. These include image guided biopsies, central venous catheter insertion, percutaneous and endoscopic hybrid biliary interventions, percutaneous gastrostomy and jejunostomy, percutaneous abscess drainage and biopsy, percutaneous tumor ablative therapies and chemoembolization.

Theory

Access to high-quality courses designed by experts on the EVE e-learning platform

Practice

Access to a complete and coached training through innovative workshops: dry, ex vivo and in vivo.

 

Clinical

Access to our partner centers where you will be able to take part in  surgical endoscopy or minimally invasive surgical procedures.

 

At the end of the program students will have


    • Acquire a general fund of knowledge about disorders amenable to diagnosis and/or treatment by percutaneous image-guided techniques
    • Understand signs/symptoms, pathophysiology and natural history of diseases amenable to image guided therapy and be able to apply this knowledge to explain indications, contraindications and risks of a percutaneous procedure as well as medical and/or surgical alternative/adjunctive therapies
    • Acquire/improve the knowledge required to form a foundation in the practice percutaneous image guided procedures in a structured way under the mentorship of world leaders in the field with access to the newest technologies, techniques and platforms
