Vascular ultrasound is a rapidly developing modality in vascular surgery. The objective with this course is to make the participants able to perform some of the most basic vascular ultrasoundexaminations: abdominal aorta, femoral arteries, peripheral bypasses, basic carotid ultrasound, deep venous thromboses and varicose veins.

Participants will have the opportunity to practice their skills under supervision during the course. This course corresponds to the curriculum of the theoretical part of EFSUMB Level 1 in Vascular Ultrasound (European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology). Online quizzes and tests will be conducted regularly during the course and the faculty underlines that attendance in the entire course is mandatory in order to receive course certificate and CME points.

Participants’ qualifications

The course is designed for vascular surgeons, vascular surgeons in training and vascular nurses and technologist. No prior ultrasound experience is required but basic knowledge to vascular anatomy and physiology is expected.


ESVS will apply the CME committee of UEMS for CME-points.

Registrations fee

€ 900 for ESVS members and € 1100 for non-members. The fee includes course material, and lunch. Transport, accommodation and additional meals are not included.


For registration and logistic info please contact the ESVS training office:

training@esvs.org / Website: http://www.esvs.org/education/

Please noticethat the course completion depend on appropriate entry. Whether the course will be conducted is announced no later than one month before course start. Travel and accommodation must therefore not be made until this message is given and ESVS is not financially responsible if this is done anyway

2019 Neonatal Ultrasound Course and First steps in Neonatal Brain Ultrasound: an amazing, adventurous journey!
mar 18 – mar 22 heldags

Learning objectives of the Course

The Course is aimed at beginners in neonatal brain US scanning and it is organized offering both frontal lectures and practical sessions.
The aim of the Course is to give an introduction to the ex- citing world of ultrasound imaging.

During the day attendees will learn the fundamentals of US physics, the probe skills to optimize an US image and the different functionalities of the ultrasound system.
The Course will give each participants the opportunity to get “hands-on” sessions with the machines and to use it to scan and fix in an image the basic structures of the “normal” neonatal brain.

The main goal of the Course is to build an open “dialogue” between teachers and participants, in order to learn practi- cally the guidelines for brain ultrasonography.
The theoretical lessons will be connected with the didactic programme of the following Course “2019 Neonatal Ultra- sound Course. Why, how and when an ultrasound image?” which will be held on 19-22 March, 2019 in Florence, Italy, where many “pathologic” images of the neonatal ultra- sonography will be treated extensively.

4th International Workshop on Diagnostic and Interventional Prostate MRI
April 2019, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th, Paris, France

Objectives of the workshop
The use of prostate MRI is expanding, as demonstrated by the growing evidence
of its clinical utility. However, consistently assigning a reproducible PI-RADS score to
visible lesions, evaluating local, regional and distant tumor extension and detecting
tumor local recurrence after radical of focal treatment remain a difficult task in clinical
Confirmatory diagnosis of PCa requires a targeted biopsy based on MRI findings. A
targeted biopsy only policy is more and more often considered to increase the
detection of significant Ca. In bore MRI guidance may thus be an attractive alternative
to MRI-TRUS image fusion to guide the biopsy and the respective indications of TRUS
or MRI guidance can be more precisely delineated.
Lastly, MRI can be used to guide in-bore focal treatments of selected tumors. Focal
treatments are performed with a physical agent delivered under direct MRI guidance
to perform a focal ablation, while preserving the rest of the prostate gland. The
respective roles of in-bore cryotherapy, laser ablation or high intensity focused are
under evaluation.

th International Workshop

on Diagnostic and Interventional Prostate MRI
April 2019, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th, Paris, France
Attention has been paid to several specific features
The availability of workstations allowing for a true-life interpretation of
numerous prostate cases. The cases will then be commented and discussed by the
The correlation with the histology of whole mount radical prostatectomy
specimens, an invaluable source of information on the MRI appearance of cancers
difficult to detect and on the actual tumor burden which should be evaluated as
precisely as possible to ensure the delineation of an appropriate target volume
during focal therapy
A question-and-answer electronic voting system that will evaluate the learning
curve throughout the workshop, ensuring a high interactivity and allowing for
exchanges with experts. The format of the workshop allows it because it is limited to
40 participants.
At the end of the workshop, participants will know:
1. How to accurately use the PIRADS 2019 version v2.1
2. Why prostate MRI before biopsy is recommended
3. Why targeted biopsies only may become a standard of care
4. Where to look for signs of tumor extra-prostatic extension
5. What are the limitations of DWI to estimate tumor aggressiveness, especially in
the transition zone
6. How to evaluate node and bone staging of high risk prostate cancer
7. How to detect local recurrence after radical treatment
8. The different techniques and indications of in bore MRI-guided focal therapy.
