EUSOBI Annual Scientific Meeting 2020

OCTOBER 1-3, 2020
MALMÖ, SWEDEN

DEAR BREAST IMAGING SPECIALIST,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our annual meeting, which will take place in Malmö, Sweden during October 1-3, 2020. As in the past years, our meeting will be preceded by our special Breast MRI course.

This year’s meeting is organised in collaboration with the Swedish Society of Breast Imaging, with active participation of Swedish and other Scandinavian professionals.

We are highly appreciative of all the positive feedback we received from over 980 participants, and we are hoping to break the magical number of more than 1000 participants at the Malmö meeting.

The highlights of this year’s Malmö meeting will feature:

  • Sessions including Oxford debates on hot topics (staging and pre-operative MRI, screening and breast density information, AI in breast imaging)
  • Updates in breast screening
  • Contrast enhanced mammography
  • DWI in breast MRI
  • Imaging in treatment of breast cancer
  • Novel developments (x-ray, nuclear, MRI, ultrasound and optoacoustic imaging)
  • Breast imaging in specific subgroups (breast cancer patients, reconstruction, children and adolescents, male and transgender persons, high risk lesions)

We are proud to present two distinguished keynote speakers: Dr David D Dershaw from the US who will take us on the journey of “The changing role of the breast radiologist” and Professor Therese Sørlie from Norway who will unravel “The intrinsic molecular subtypes in breast cancer” to the audience.

In our effort to extend bonds with other societies around the world, this year EUSOBI will meet the Japanese breast radiologists.
Young radiologists are indispensable now and in the future, and in this sense, we are happy to again announce the EUSOBI Young Club Symposium, which will be organised on Thursday, October 1, in the morning. Young radiologists can interact with and ask the experts about different professional issues.

Finally, we would like to invite you to our prestigious evening event where we – in the footsteps of the Nordic Noir trend in movies and books – will join forces to solve entertaining and intriguing “Mysteries at the Slaughterhouse”, followed by a shared dinner and enchanting ABBA-music, of course. Join us on Friday, October 2, and experience an unforgettable evening in Malmö.

We look forward to seeing you in Malmö!

Dr. Julia Camps Herrero
EUSOBI President

Prof. Sophia Zackrisson
Local Congress Organiser

The train at the Copenhagen airport will directly bring you to the EUSOBI 2020 Congress Venue by crossing the famous Öresund bridge. You need to get off at Malmö Hyllie Station, which is only 11 mins from the Copenhagen Airport. It is the easiest and most convenient way to travel to EUSOBI 2020!
