Expert Stage Presentations Recordings

ECR 2022 | Dr. Alexander Loizides | Landmark Based Approach to Small Nerves of the Head and Neck

In this lecture, step-by-step instructions are given, on how to find and assess nerves of the head and neck. The big and small ones no matter where they are located in the body, based on the "landmarking technique"

ECR 2022 | Prof. Thomas Fischer | Kidney Cysts – Bosniak Classification with High Resolution

Ultrasound (US) is the preferred first-line imaging modality for assessing the kidneys in terms of size and presence of concrements and to localize outflow obstruction in the urinary tract. Focal renal lesions can be detected by the unenhanced US. The aim is to differentiate cystic and solid lesions, while lesion characterization may be difficult. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) allows much more sensitive identification and characterization of intracystic septae compared with CT or MRI; thus, CEUS Bosniak classification of renal cysts is distinct from its CT counterpart. This talk will show the Bosniak classification with high-resolution ultrasound based on CEUS.

ECR 2022 | Prof. Thomas Fischer Prostate Ultrasound Fusion Guided Biopsies

Unenhanced transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) and color duplex ultrasound (CDUS) have poor sensitivity and specificity (approx. 50-60%) for the detection of prostate cancer (PCa), while TRUS has an important role in guiding both systematic and targeted MRI/TRUS fusion biopsy. The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) in ultrasound during the common years will improve the diagnostic performance in image interpretation. Therefore, radiologists in the future will focus on US-guided interventions and coordinating an interdisciplinary team. The combination of high-resolution 3T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with the dynamic information obtained by TRUS can be exploited for diagnosis in the form of MRI/US fusion biopsy in terms of the transrectal or transperineal approach. Since very severe infections can occur with transrectal prostate biopsy, a perineal biopsy is increasingly recommended. Since the perineal biopsy does not injure the intestinal mucosa, there can be no inundation of intestinal bacteria into the prostate. Our studies show that this diagnostic approach improves the detection of PCa in general and detection of significant PCa in particular in patients with an indication for repeat prostate biopsy.

ECR 2022 | Dr. Giovanna Ferraioli-Stiffness and Fat Quantification Using the Aplio i-Series

Shear wave elastography (SWE) has been accepted by guidelines as a reliable substitute of liver biopsy in several clinical scenarios. All guidelines recommend following a protocol for stiffness measurements. Moreover, several confounding factors that influence liver stiffness independently from the stage of liver fibrosis have been identified, including hepatic inflammation, extra-hepatic cholestasis, liver congestion, and infiltrative liver diseases. These factors should be taken into account to avoid overestimation of liver fibrosis.

ECR 2022 | Prof. Patrick De Boeve | How Eye Exams Help Chronic Disease Detection

The retina is a unique tissue that conveniently visualizes some of our tiniest blood vessels and neural tissue. Fundus imaging and optical coherence tomography can capture structural microvascular changes and alterations in multiple retinal layers. Retinal metrics derived from these imaging techniques find application in clinical and epidemiological studies and public health investigations. These metrics can identify the early effects of disease risk factors, map physiological changes on the trajectory to chronic disease, and help to stratify patients. This presentation will discuss how convenient eye exams can support the detection of cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.

ECR 2022 | Prof. Bart van Wijmeersch | Looking into Multiple Sclerosis through the Eye

Some major neurological disorders that are difficult to diagnose and assess by MRI in their earliest stages, produce certain indications in the eye. One important example is multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is a lifelong autoimmune condition that affects the central nervous system. Lesions are produced inside the brain, spinal cord or optic nerve that can result in neurological disability. On a cellular level, MS develops through a combination of inflammatory demyelinating lesions and axonal loss, which causes neurodegeneration and brain atrophy.
OCT is a fast and noninvasive imaging technique that is used to map the layers of the retina and can be used as a marker for the neurodegenerative process that occurs inside the whole brain in MS. This helps neurologists in the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment-response and follow-up of this disease. During this talk, the use of OCT in the current and future management of MS will be explained.

ECR 2022 | Mr. Koen Siefkes | First hand Experience Working With a Canon Mobile CT Solution

As a Senior CT Radiographer at Radboud University Medical Center, Mr. Koen Siefkes will share his first-hand experience of working with a Canon Mobile CT Solution. He will explain why Radboud’s radiology department had the need for a temporary Mobile Imaging Solution and how this additional scanner impacted daily operations from a Senior CT Radiographer perspective.

OUTCOMES DRIVEN INNOVATION IN ULTRASOUND - FROM DETECTION TO TREATMENT

Ultrasound is a fundamental imaging technique for clinicians with unique values combining real-time imaging, dynamic exams with various resolutions. Thanks to Doppler techniques, it allows us to analyze vessels and more widely the wall body vascularization. It is easy accessible or even mobile with a very simple setup and on top of that, it is a perfect modality for follow-up of pediatrics. Many improvements and developments have been done during the last years on ultrasound techniques. In this session, the improvements for Resolution, Differentiation, Micro Flows, Fusion Guidance and Elastography are covered.

Dr. Olaf Rieker presents "Clinical confidence anywhere."
The CT City Hopper is a combination of a mobile trailer and an Aquilion Prime SP CT scanner with AiCE technology.
In this product presentation, a MyVisit tour is given to present this unique product and Dr. Olaf Rieker will explain how he deployed the CT City Hopper during building constructions in his hospital.

Professor Marc Brockmann, the head of the Department of Neuroradiology at the University Medical Center in Mainz Germany, explains about his experiences with the Ultra High resolution Aquilion Precision CT scanner.

OUTCOMES DRIVEN INNOVATION IN MAGNETIC RESONANCE - OVERCOME COMPROMISES USING AI

The need to catch-up with higher backlog of patients requires shorter examination procedures but at the same time nobody wants to compromise on clinical confidence and need to keep high-SNR and high-resolution images. In this session, the methods are presented to overcome the compromise between high-resolution imaging, High SNR and faster scan time. We introduce our artificial intelligence Deep Learning Reconstruction solution AiCE to see through the noise. We explain how to combine AiCE with acceleration techniques like Compressed SPEEDER or Fast3D to create very fast acquisition times and very good image quality.

Globally, stroke is a leading cause of mortality and disability with the World Stroke Organization reporting an annual mortality rate of 5 and a half million people*. Additionally, up to 50% of survivors have chronic disability posing a major public health problem and substantial economic burden. Identifying who is at risk for stroke, how to make the best decisions and perform complex procedures under such time pressure, all will be covered in this symposium session. Join our panel of experts to learn how guidelines updates and revised recommendations translate into clinical practice.
