EUSOBI Annual Scientific Meeting 2022

September 29 – October 1, 2022
Malmö, Sweden

Dear breast imaging specialist,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to our Annual Scientific Meeting, which will take place in Malmö, Sweden during September 29 – October 1, 2022. As in the past years, our meeting will be preceded by our special Breast MRI Training Course as well as an EYC Workshop.
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 participants of previous meetings, and we are hoping to break the magical number of more than 1000 participants at this year’s meeting. While we aim for an high in-person attendance with the advantage of enjoying both, the scientific and social sides of EUSOBI, we are also planning to broadcast our main programme live in order to reach those who cannot travel to Malmö.

The highlights of this year’s Malmö meeting will feature:
– Sessions including Oxford debates on hot topics (DWI-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: Professor Regina Beets-Tan from the Netherlands who will take us on the journey of “The Future of Cancer Imaging” 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, September 29, 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, September 30, and experience an unforgettable evening in Malmö.

We look forward to seeing you in Malmö!
