European Course of Neuroradiology, Diagnostic and Interventional in Latin America - Module 2: Tumors
We are currently going through a worldwide health issue due to the expansion of the COVID-19. Some scientific societies and other organizations have decided to cancel or postpone activities with large crowds to control the spread of the virus. Also, multiple countries have established restrictions on mobility and have enforced the control of travelers coming from high-risk zones.
For several weeks, we have been following up on every aspect of the organization of the event, especially those related to the travel of professors and participants. After a deep analysis of different alternatives and risks associated with displacement between countries, the Colombian Association of Radiology - ACR and the European Society of Neuroradiology - ESNR, in charge of the European Course of Neuroradiology in Latin America, have determined to postpone the second module of this meeting to October 18 to 21, 2020*. This is also in response to the measures announced by the Colombian Government to restrict the holding of massive events after the detection of COVID-19 cases.
This decision considers as well the restrictions being currently applied in Europe, the United States and Latin America, which impedes the traveling of most of the faculty members abroad.
The organizing committee, aware of the implications for both societies and each attendant, decides to release this information without further delay so everyone involved in this course can make proper changes in their hotel reservations and tickets on time.
Seeking to minimize the impact of the meeting rescheduling, the Colombian Association of Radiology will send an official communication to the airlines that provide services to Cartagena informing them about the date modification and requesting their collaboration with users. Changes will be subject to the policies of each airline.
Regarding accommodation, the InterContinental Cartagena Hotel has accepted the modification of reservation dates for October. Participants who have made their reservation at other hotels should contact them directly to check their change policies. The Colombian Radiology Association will be willing to provide advice if required.
We encourage you to confirm your participation in October and the reception of this letter. If you have any questions or requests, please send an email to , call +57 (4) 2626978, +57 315 716 24 61 or text via WhatsApp to +57 3152197018.

ABOUT THE COURSE
The Colombian Association of Radiology - ACR and the European Society of Neuroradiology - ESNR are carrying out in Colombia the second cycle of the European Course of Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology in Latin America (ECNR LA).
This is an advanced intensive course divided into 4 modules, with the equivalence of the courses that the ESNR carries out in Europe. The participant who completes the 4 modules and passes the respective exams can apply for the European Diploma of Neuroradiology (EDiNR)*.
The second module of the course (Tumours) will take place from October 18 to 21, 2020 in the city of Cartagena and will be taught by renowned teachers from Europe, North America and Latin America. The program will include lectures in the morning sessions and interesting case analysis workshops in small groups in the afternoons.
The course is aimed exclusively at radiologists and radiology residents.
*EDiNR is not equivalent to a fellow in neuroradiology nor is it an accreditation to practice as a neuroradiologist. For more information about EDiNR click here.
Thematic lines of the second module of the course:
CNS tumor classification, genetics, and gliomas
Gliomas and neuronal tumors
Intra and extra axial tumors
Imaging and treatment of CNS tumors
Due to the change of date of Module 2 to October 2020 as a consequence of the global emergency caused by COVID-19, the group of teachers may have variations according to their travel availability for this date.

Cartagena de Indias is one of the most important destinations in the Caribbean. Its Historic Center was declared as Historical and Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco in 1985.
This cultural and architectural jewel was the epicenter of the economic activity of the sixteenth century, during the colonial era. Keeping alive a memory of battles, conquests and pirates, Cartagena has a fascinating architectural mix that includes walls, bastions and forts, as well as preserved buildings of colonial and republican style. The beautiful walled historic center contrasts with the modernism of the skyscrapers that rise in the main commercial, residential and hotel area of the city.
