Hands-on GI-Lab

Following the success of the freshly introduced Hands-on GI-Lab sessions in 2023, the Scientific Programme Committee decided to continue this format for CIRSE 2024. These interactive “ask the expert” sessions consist of demonstrations of common GI procedures and their devices. Four hands-on stations will cover percutaneous drainage & biopsy, biliary drainage, biliary intervention, and radiologic gastrostomy using phantoms. Experienced tutors will outline key concepts of each procedure and stimulate discussion around best practice driven by the training needs of the delegates. The informal setting allows free discussion of any aspects of the procedures and gives ample opportunity to ask questions from any level of training. “There are no silly questions, only poor explanations.”

Learning objectives:

  • To understand the principles of percutaneous drainage and biopsy, radiologic gastrostomy, and percutaneous biliary drainage and intervention
  • To become familiar with the respective devices available as well as their indications and limitations
  • To be able to adapt procedures to each patient and their specific requirements
  • To be able to anticipate and manage complications

How to participate

Participation will be free of charge for registered CIRSE 2024 delegates, but places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. As these sessions offer practical medical training, participation is for qualified medical professionals only.
