Acute Neuroradiology workshop

A case-based interactive course

Covering neuroimage interpretation that general radiologists will find useful in routine and out of hours clinical practice. Course organised by Infomed Research and Training on Thursday 26 September 2019, at the Park Plaza County Hall Hotel, 1 Addington Street, London SE1 7RY

Course programme

Target audience

  • General radiologists and senior radiology trainees
  • DGH radiologists
  • Consultant emergency physicians
  • Neuroscience speciality registrars
  • Suitable for those in need of further proficiency as are increasingly having to do more neuroimaging before a referral decision

Dr Lalani Carlton Jones

Dr Lalani Carlton Jones

Lalani practices in all areas of adult and paediatric neuroradiology, at Guys and St Thomas’s, The Evelina London paediatric hospital and Kings College hospitals NHS Trusts. Having trained in both neurology and neurosurgery prior to her general radiology training, she undertook the Pan London neuroradiology fellowship rotating through The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Barts and the London, Imperial and Kings College hospital NHS Trusts. She has published in peer-reviewed general and specialist neuroradiology journals, as well as delivering multiple national and international presentations and been the recipient of several postgraduate awards. She has a keen interest in medical education having completed a postgraduate diploma and now Masters in Medical education. One of her key interests is in learning from medical error, and she furthers this with a role on the RCR radiology events and learning panel.

About the course

Course aim

This is a case-based acute neuroradiology course. 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.

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 confidently approach more challenging cases.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, the attendee 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 subtle abnormalities, 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 tertiary neuroscience 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.

Dr Julie Chandra

Dr Chandra is a consultant in diagnostic neuroradiology working in all aspects of general adult and paediatric neuroimaging. She graduated from Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge and Imperial College London before undertaking general surgical training in London and speciality registrar training in radiology based at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. She subsequently undertook a 2 year neuroradiology fellowship at the West Wing, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, training in adult and paediatric neuroradiology, head and neck imaging and spinal intervention. She has a strong interest in postgraduate education and research interests include the use of functional MRI in neurological disease.
