The ESOI/EORTC workshop is an interactive hands-on course aimed at practising radiologists and radiology residents, focusing on the criteria-based assessment of tumour response to treatment. The course consists of a number of lectures explaining the principles of imaging-based tumour response assessment and several hands-on interactive training workshops using specialised software with common and rare cancer cases encountered in the clinical routine or within clinical trials.

Learning objectives

  • To review the most common imaging criteria for assessment of treatment response.
  • To review the principles of structured oncologic reporting and the requirements for clinically relevant oncological reports from an oncologist’s perspective.
  • To achieve hands-on experience in choosing and measuring lesions, assessing tumour response to therapy and avoiding potential pitfalls.
  • To gain knowledge relevant to radiologists about clinical trials and trial methodology.


Participants will have the unique opportunity to sit for a qualification test on using RECIST 1.1 at the end of the workshop. Successful participants will receive a RECIST qualification certificate from the ESOI and EORTC. Qualified radiologists will then have the option to become independent imaging reviewers for future EORTC studies.
