The first part of the ESUI section meeting provides the state of the art of kidney imaging including ultrasound, CT-scan and MRI. Moreover, the session gives a timely overview on the role of imaging, focal therapy and kidney biopsy in the management and follow-up of small renal masses.

A panel discussion will address the limitations of imaging in the daily practice and the possible resulting clinical problems. The second part of the session gives a timely overview on the use of imaging in the management of urinary incontinence and other pelvic urogenital pathologies. Finally, the session will highlight and summarise the most recent findings in urological imaging.

Poster sessions more informal and useful

Interview with Prof. F. Hamdy

The 26th Annual EAU Congress in Vienna marks a change in the scientific programme. The multitude of abstract presentations will move away from the mixed format of the previous congresses, and focus on poster sessions. The popular video sessions will continue alongside the other presentations.

In previous years, the presentations of abstracts occurred in oral and video sessions, in addition to the poster format. The decision to move on from the oral sessions to poster sessions comes from the EAU Scientific Committee, based on successful trials at last year’s EAU Congress in Barcelona.

ESU: There Is a Course for Everyone

Thousands of delegates attend the EAU Congress each year – certified urologists, residents, urologists training in a sub-speciality and affiliated medical practitioners. The European School of Urology has prepared 40 courses and training modules to meet the needs and interests of all attending professionals. Well-structured, interactive, practice-oriented, continuously updated and taught by world’s leading experts – ESU courses are always among the best-attended initiatives of the EAU Congress.
