ESUI 2014

Dear Colleagues,

The 3rd Meeting of the EAU Section of Urological Imaging (ESUI), in conjunction with the 6th European Multidisciplinary Meeting on Urological Cancers (EMUC14), will be held in Lisbon, Portugal. The meeting will be the most important European meeting addressing imaging and image guided therapies in Urology in 2014.

The meeting’s slogan is "Advanced Imaging for Diagnosis and Treatment in Urology". This slogan highlights the emphasis put into the program by addressing the latest developments in the diagnosis of urological pathologies including Ultrasound, MRI and PET/CT, as well as addressing the latest developments in interventional imaging and image guided therapies. Moreover, the meeting will provide detailed clinical knowledge about how to apply and use these techniques. This will close the gap between preliminary experiences in selected centers and the early and broad application of these techniques in daily practice.

The meeting will be a perfect platform to present and discuss the most recent advances and innovations in urological imaging as well as to critically assess these new tools. International experts in urology and imaging will be present throughout the meeting and will address, amongst other topics, current controversies in interactive point and counterpoint sessions in order to clarify the reason for these controversies and to find possible solutions to overcome those.

Imaging plays already a major role in the management of urological patients but will become even more important in the future. It is of upmost importance that urologists are familiar with these developments in order to remain up to date and in order to integrate these tools into the armory of Urology. The 3rd ESUI meeting will be the best opportunity to do so in 2014.

I am looking forward to see you in Lisbon,
Jochen Walz

Chairman EAU Section of Urological Imaging (ESUI)
