Mistakes in medical imaging: how to avoid them

JFIM 16th Edition

Buenos Aires Oct 26th-29th 2017

JFIM hits the road to Buenos Aires!

We are pleased to present our pre-program for our next congress in Argentina. JFIM has it’s own specificities linked to the fact that French radiologists work in close partnership with clinicians in order to stick to real patients issues. The second point we want to highlight is our willingness to exchange and compare experience with other countries. As you know, patients have common conditions everywhere in the world and when an innovative technique comes out, it spreads all over very quickly but each country has it’s own approaches in the way to apply those novelties, to manage patients and integrate economic issues. We strongly believe that we are able to learn from each other, even from one field to another and that is what JFIM is offering to you, a unique experience to compare, exchange and learn from your peers. We hope you’ll find our program of interest and we’ll be pleased to meet with you personally in Buenos Aires.


  Hasta la próxima !

International Radiology Updates Abstracts

Mumbai, 3rd -6th November 2016

Liver and Biliary ducts

Chairmen: Dr Deep SHRIVASTAVA, Pr Jean Michel TUBIANA, Pr Christine HOEFFEL

Interventional radiology in CHC management has become essential. Ablation techniques and chemo-embolization complement each other and are involved at all stages of the disease. We will review techniques and indications. The meeting will also simulate multidisciplinary discussions based on selected clinical cases to highlight the role of interventional radiologists in oncology.


Breast and soft tissue interventions

Chairmen: Dr Sushma THAKUR, Dr Jean GUIGUI, Dr Sophie TAIEB, Dr Luc ROTENBERG

Interventional radiology has an increased role in diagnostics but also in treatment of breast lesion. Many techniques are now available to obtain relevant samples for each case by large core or vaccum breast biopsy. If open surgery remains the common approach in 2016 for malignant lesion, several benign lesions and border lesions benefit from nonsurgical removal procedure without further surgery.


Kidney and urology

Chairmen: Dr Shrikant KOTHEKAR, Pr Patrice TAOUREL, Dr Shrikant KOTHEKAR

Percutaneous treatment of kidney and retro-peritoneal lesions has developed in recent years due to guiding ablation techniques improved efficiency broadening recommendations and indications. Renal transplantation complications are managed by interventional radiology and more recently benign prostatic hyperplasia can benefit in some cases from nonsurgical techniques such as ablation and endovascular embolization.

Cardiac and Thoracic

Chairmen : Dr Sanjeev SHARMA, Pr Gilbert FERRETTI, Pr Ph C DOUEK, Dr Suyash KULKARNI

Chest pathology is a traditional field of vascular and interventional radiology. Development in trans-thoracic biopsies and lung parenchymal ablation now offer alternative care to open surgery. Arteriovenous malformation embolization and management of endovascular lesion or ruptured aneurysms will also be addressed in this session.

MSK interventional and pain management

Chairmen: Pr Jean Denis LAREDO, Dr. Shrinivas DESAI, Dr Aditya DAFFTARY, Pr Catherine CYTEVAL

Management of primary and metastatic bone lesions uses more and more sophisticated interventional techniques for their ablation and acute and chronic pain management. The various techniques, their characteristics and indications will be addressed during this session.

Vascular Interventional

Chairmen:  DR RAMAMOORTHY, Pr Louis BOYER, Pr Jean Michel BARTOLI, Dr Vimal SOMESHWAR

Vascular pathology is one of the first fields to benefit from radiological interventional techniques. Treatment of stenosis or arterial aneurysms by endovascular path, arteriovenous malformation or fistulas and their complications will be discussed during this session with a focus on acute and chronic mesenteric ischemia. Finally, a new promising technique of haemorrhoids embolization will be presented to close the congress.
