Visiting Professorship Programme Colombia
Head and Neck Radiology

August 1, 2017; Bogota/Colombia
August 3, 2017; Cartagena/Colombia
Course informationBoth courses are aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in head and neck imaging. The courses are designed as an intense one-day programme covering key topics in head and neck pathologies. They are intended to offer practical insights into head and neck challenging problems encountered in the every-day practice, as in lesions of the orbit, larynx, temporal bone and neck. A special attention will be given to the latest development in CT and MR to optimise the detection, characterisation, local and regional tumour mapping and follow up of head and neck neoplasms. The courses will also provide an overview of the potential of high-resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography for low-dose imaging of temporal bone and sinuses. Renowned European lecturers will ensure a high teaching quality programme, combining lectures and workshops, allowing case-based interactive panel discussions in small groups.

Learning objectives
  • to learn about the impact of imaging information on treatment choices
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative values of US, CT and MR techniques in a wide range of head and neck pathologies
  • to review imaging protocols and key information in the assessment of neck lumps and spread of deep infections
  • to discuss the state of the art of CBCT in lesions of temporal bone and sinuses
