Description

A two day fully interactive case-based webinar on interpretation and reporting of CT Neuroradiology. Attendees will be provided with individual, secure access to the cases and advanced image viewing PACS software so that they can simultaneously review cases with the faculty. There will be Q&As throughout the day and attendees will be able to access course recordings for revision and reflection.

COURSE CONTENT

  • Understand basic and advanced neuroanatomy as well as relevant anatomical variants.
  • Feel confident with having a sensible basic approach to diagnostic neuroradiology CT reporting
  • Go beyond identification of basic patterns of common neuroradiological diagnoses to confidently approach more challenging cases
  • Sessions will focus mostly on acute and trauma cases that are most relevant to day to day practice of DGH radiologists but will also address cases that the radiologist may not see frequently but needs to recognise and decide if referring further

Topics covered include:

  • Relevant neuroanatomy and variants
  • Cranial trauma
  • Acute stroke
  • Non-traumatic acute haemorrhage
  • Acute paediatric brain CT
  • Cervical Spine trauma
  • Thoracolumbar Spine trauma
  • Intracranial infection in the acute setting
  • Intracranial masses and mimics
  • Non-traumatic acute spine
  • The skull base on the acute CT head
  • Review areas with specific clinical presentations; where does the radiologist add value?
  • The post-operative neurosurgical CT head
  • Quiz/ Neurodiscrepancy cases

By the end of the course, the delegate will have:

  • (1) become more confident in their daily interpretation of acute neuroradiology cases
  • (2) have a better understanding of appropriate use of imaging and different diagnoses;
  • (3) have learned tips and tricks that would allow them to avoid common misses and pick up on subtle abnormalities, particularly in relation to topics that are often inconsistently reported.
  • (4) be confident and able to make a decision on when/how to refer.
