Oncology Taskforce – new chairperson: Dr. Jürgen Schäfer (DE)

We are very happy to introduce Prof.Dr. Jürgen Schäfer as new chairperson of the Oncology Taskforce.

The main goal of taskforces is to support and to enhance the efforts of the ESPR in special fields. Initiatives might be links to other radiological or non-radiological societies or working groups, publications, guidelines, dedicated scientific sessions on occasion of the ESPR Annual Meeting and much more.
A number of new initiatives are planned including activities regarding harmonization of whole-body MR protocols for staging and screening, imaging facilities for early response assessment, correlation between imaging and genetic profiling, and collaboration with SIOP and subgroups.

Hence, we are currently setting up the group of taskforce members.

Let us know via email if you wish to become a member the Oncology Taskforce and become actively involved in future projects.
