EUSOBI Annual Scientific Meeting 2019

OCTOBER 3-5, 2019
BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our Annual Meeting, which will take place in Budapest, Hungary, from October 3-5, 2019.
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 Hungarian Society of Radiology, Section of Breast Imaging, with active participation of Hungarian pathologists, breast surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists.

We are highly appreciative of all the positive feedback we received from over 930 participants, and we also celebrate the fact that for the first time in EUSOBI we have more than 1.000 members. This is testament to the rising and ever growing interest that European breast radiology elicits among our peers. We have also been very interested in taking into account the feedback we received after our last Athens meeting in order to put together a great scientific programme!

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

  • Staging and follow up
  • Imaging in the role of breast cancer treatment
  • Risk assessment and imaging patients at risk
  • Abbreviated MRI, ultrafast and diffusion MRI
  • Novel developments (metabolic imaging, hyperpolarized MRI, mammi-PET and AI)
  • Mammography and tomosynthesis
  • Update in ultrasound

In our effort to extend bonds with other societies around the world, this year EUSOBI will meet with the Australian and New Zealand breast radiologists. Young radiologists are indispensable now and in the future, therefore we are happy to hold a new EUSOBI Young Club Symposium, where young radiologists can interact with and ask experts about different professional issues.

Before and after the congress, we recommend you to enjoy the programmes of this tourist friendly city, where you may find a lot of classical and jazz music, thermal baths, museums, and a vibrant city center with sky bars and the famous ruin bars.

We look forward to seeing you in Budapest!
