Who should attend

DGH radiologists, General radiologists and senior radiology trainees, Neuroscience Specialty Registrars

This webinar is for those in need of further proficiency as they are increasingly having to do more neuroimaging before a referral decision.

Each session includes:

  • A brief introduction by the session lead.
  • Cases then reviewed by session lead whom will provide:
  • Top tips
  • Pitfalls
  • Interactive questions
  • Take home messages

The content

This webinar will 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 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

Fourteen sessions over two days:

  • 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

the aim

This is a case-based acute neuroradiology webinar. The most frequently encountered out of hours CT examination is acute CT Head and therefore the course will have an on neuroradiological diagnosis based on CT head interpretation with additional MR follow up where relevant.

 

The focus will go beyond spotting common presentations and diagnosis, to troubleshooting, more subtle diagnosis, common pitfalls and errors. Many general radiologists report out of hours CT head in their routine practice and this course will serve as a useful revision and update to common patterns of disease as well as common practice errors.  This will include pathology recognition, reporting style and content, and very importantly, when to refer.

  • practical (case-based learning);
  • stimulating (interactive, challenging cases, immediate feedback)
  • comprehensive (covering a full range of acute neuro imaging topics)

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.
