NEURORADIOLOGY | Online | June 15, 2022

Course information

This course is aimed at residents in their 4th and 5th year of training in radiology and recently board-certified radiologists interested in Neuroradiology. It is strictly adhered to Level II of the European Training Curriculum and is designed for those who wish to familiarise themselves with the clinical and imaging presentations and differential diagnosis of the most prevalent and important disorders encountered in daily neuroradiology practice. The course includes six topics consisting of 40 minutes of theory and case presentations followed by a live Q&A section after each session for interaction with the faculty members.

Learning objectives

  • to become familiar with the clinical and imaging presentations and differential diagnosis of the most common and important disorders encountered in neuroradiology
  • to understand the indications for, and the accuracy of, CT-scan and MRI in these disorders
  • to become familiar with the most common imaging signs of these disorders and their imaging differential diagnoses
  • to understand the information provided by these imaging studies and their importance in clinical decision making
