The International Diagnostic Course in Davos (IDKD) offers a unique learning
experience for imaging specialists in training as well as for experienced radiologists
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 heart, chest and breast.
During the course, the topics are discussed in group seminars and in plenary sessions
with lectures by world-renowned experts and teachers. While the seminars
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
heart, chest and breast diseases. The topics encompass all the relevant imaging
modalities including conventional X-rays, computed tomography, nuclear medicine
with PET, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, as well as imageguided
The Syllabus is designed to be an ‘aide-mémoire’ for the course participants so
that they can fully concentrate on the lectures and participate in the discussions
without the need of taking notes.
