5th Meeting of the EAU Section of Urological Imaging
The theme of the 5th ESUI meeting is “Imaging and shifting paradigms in urology” which places in context the most recent and emerging developments in treating urological diseases and the crucial role imaging plays.
With advances in imaging technologies providing more diagnostic information, physicians and specialists require not only updates on the advantages of these tools but also insights on how it impacts standard treatment and the management of disease progression. Experts from across Europe and outside the region will share their best practices and knowledge gained from actual clinical experience, providing participants the opportunity to examine unresolved questions.
The 5th ESUI meeting will particularly address topics such as multiparametric MRI and PET with new tracers such as PSMA, examining in detail their limits and benefits.
As in previous years, the 5th ESUI Meeting will be organised to complement the annual European Multidisciplinary Meeting on Urological Cancers (EMUC) which holds its eight meeting in 2016. Organising the ESUI prior to the EMUC adds a dimension to the EMUC’s multidisciplinary programme and brings into focus the pivotal role imaging plays in the optimal treatment of onco-urological malignancies. Experts from radiology, pathology and medical oncology, among others, also enrich the comprehensive programme and discussions that both meetings offer, making the ESUI meeting an ideal platform for updates on the latest advances in urological imaging.
Join us in Milan for the 5th ESUI Meeting!

MRI before biopsy offers benefits but quality assurance needed
Emerging imaging technologies such as multi-parametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (mpMRI) offer benefits but more empirical studies are needed to support quality assessments of emerging imaging procedures.
