The International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) offers a unique learning experience for imaging specialists in training as well as for experienced radi- logists and clinicians wishing to be updated on the current state of the art and the latest developments in the fields of imaging and image-guided interventions. This annual course is focused on organ systems and diseases rather than on modalities. This year’s program deals with diseases of the abdomen and pelvis. During the course, the topics are discussed in group workshops and in plenary sessions with lectures by world-renowned experts and teachers. While the wo- shops present state-of-the-art summaries, the lectures are oriented towards future developments. Accordingly, this Syllabus represents a condensed version of the contents presented under the 20 topics dealing with imaging and interventional therapies in abdominal and pelvic diseases. The topics encompass all the relevant imaging modalities including conventional X-rays, computed tomography, - clear medicine, ultrasound and magnetic resonance angiography, as well as image-guided interventional techniques. The Syllabus is designed to be an “aide-mémoire” for the course participants so that they can fully concentrate on the lecture and participate in the discussions without the need of taking notes.
