European Course of Neuroradiology, Diagnostic and Interventional in Latin America - Module 2: Tumors
On March 13th - 2020, we announced the postponement for October of the European Course of Neuroradiology, Diagnostic and Interventional in Latin America - Second module: tumors, due to the global public health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Although in principle it was anticipated that it would be possible to carry out the course in October, the behavior of the pandemic and its social and economic effects have led us to rethink the date of the meeting once again.
Everything indicates that some restrictions or special requirements to hold large meetings in Colombia will be maintained for the remainder of this year. On the other hand, some hospitals in different countries are probably advising their medical staff not to travel in the upcoming months. We also understand that some participants and speakers prefer to wait longer before traveling abroad, for the safety of themselves and their families.
Therefore, the Colombian Association of Radiology ACR and the European Society of Neuroradiology ESNR, after a joint meeting, have decided to postpone the course once again. The new and confirmed date of the course is: 11th – 14th of April 2021.
Regarding accommodation, the InterContinental Cartagena Hotel has accepted the modification of booking dates for April 2021. Participants who have made their reservation at other hotels should contact them directly to check their change policies. The Colombian Association of Radiology will be willing to provide advice about reservations at the InterContinental Hotel or about changes of flights.

We thank all the participants for their understanding, hoping to count on their participation in the course on this new date.

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 April 11th to 14th, 2021 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.
