About us

For over 15 years we have been jointly committed to scientifically sound, clinically focused and didactically polished teaching in radiology.

During this two-day course we provide you a comprehensive state of the art hands-on training in prostate MRI.

Online workshops in small groups are ideally suited for this purpose. Our participants agree with us: 96% evaluate our current online course as “very good” (4%: good) and 100% would recommend it to their colleagues.

Booking both the basic and advanced courses of our “MRI of the Prostate” series is highly recommended. In this case you receive a bundle discount of 20%. Of course, you can also attend each course separately.

We look forward to welcoming soon at the school of radiology!

  • Familiarize yourself with basic functionalities, e.g., turning video and audio on/off and writing chat messages.
  • Please do not use Zoom via your browser.

  • A fast and stable internet connection (ideally LAN, not W-LAN), appropriate lighting, a quality microphone, and a quality webcam are important elements for success in the course.
