Description

Course aimsThis is a case-based acute neuroradiology course. The most frequently encountered out of hours CTexamination is acute CT Head and therefore the course will have an on neuroradiological diagnosis based onCT head interpretation with additional MR follow up where relevant.The focus will go beyond spotting common presentations and diagnosis, to troubleshooting, more subtlediagnosis, common pitfalls and errors. Many general radiologists report out of hours CT head in their routinepractice and this course will serve as a useful revision and update to common patterns of disease as well ascommon practice errors. This will include pathology recognition, reporting style and content.To ensure that delegates are able to:• 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 confidentlyapproach more challenging cases• Cases will focus on routine pathologies most relevant to day to day practice but will also address casesthat the radiologist may not see frequently but needs to recognise and probably refer furtherTarget audience• General radiologists and senior radiology trainees• DGH radiologists• Consultant Emergency Physicians• Neuroscience Specialty RegistrarsThe course is for those in need of further proficiency as they increasingly having to do more neuroimagingbefore a referral decision.CPD CreditsThis course provides 6 CPD credits in accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists.Learning outcomesBy the end of the course, delegates will:• become more confident in their daily interpretation of acute neuroradiology cases• have a better understanding of appropriate use of imaging and different diagnoses;• have learned tips and tricks that would allow them to avoid common misses and pick up on subtleabnormalities, particularly in relation to topics that are often inconsistently reported.• be confident and able to make a decision on when/how to refer.Course highlights• Faculty of UK based Consultant Neuroradiologists and senior neuroradiology fellow practicing in tertiaryneuroscience centres.• Case based interactive learning and no didactic lecturing• Around 100 cases on iMac workstations for you to interpret and discuss• Excellent peer interaction and collaborative learning with 2 delegates per iMac workstation• Strict limit on the number of delegates attending
