About the Presenter
Prof. Roberto Pozzi Mucelli graduated in Medicine from the University of Trieste with full marks and honours and conducted Visiting Research Programs at several universities in the United States. In 1994 he became a full professor of Radiology at the University of Trieste where he was also chairman of the Radiology Department between 2000 and 2004. Between 2004 and 2017 he chaired the department of radiology at the university of Verona. Meanwhile he was an invited speaker at many international and national meetings, performed for 11 years as Editor in Chief of “La Radiologia Medica”, the official journal of the Italian Society of Medical Radiology, and authored more than 350 papers on Diagnostic Radiology and textbooks on Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Pancreatic Imaging.

Webinar Description
This lecture will address the features and the respective roles of CT and MRI in the detection, characterization and staging of renal tumours.
Multidetector Computed Tomography (MDCT) is a fundamental imaging technique in the diagnosis of renal tumours: it is essential for confirmation and staging of lesions that are incidentally detected at US, and gives its contribution to the incidental detection of small renal tumors since about 1/3 of cases are diagnosed during a CT examination of the upper abdomen. MDCT also plays a role in the characterization of renal tumours, although some limitations still exist, especially for fat-poor angiomyolipoma and oncocytoma.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has nowadays comparable results with MDCT for detection, diagnosis and staging of renal masses. A careful MR technique has to be used to obtain both identification and characterization of renal tumours, and for the differential diagnosis with benign lesions.

This webinar will be offered free of charge to anyone interested. Registration will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.
