Research Mission

The UOC DFP supports multi-institutional research projects related to our mission, with the purpose of creating or strengthening existing collaborations and serving as a platform for strategic research and mentorship in our areas of expertise. You can submit potential multi-institutional projects/ideas using the UOC DFP Research Study Outline Proposal form and the UOC DFP leadership will review the proposal. At the early stages it’s acceptable for the information in the form to lack details. Please include all potential collaborators you may know of; however this list can be changed as needed by written communication.

Education Mission

The mission of the UOC DFP is to educate radiologists about gynecologic cancers and enable them to contribute meaningfully to gynecologic oncologic care.  DFP members generate educational content in peer-reviewed journal; provide workshops, lectures, and hands-on courses at the annual meeting. Online SAR-sponsored content for CME credit is being developed.

Clinical Practice Mission

Provide UOC DFP approved imaging templates and protocols to SAR members and the practicing radiologists. Interact with the ACR, ESUR and other organizations to assure open communication between societies and foster a collaborative effort in education and guideline development.
