Virtual PET/CT Imaging Course (BST)

We are delighted to announce our first ever, comprehensive British PET/CT Course, developed exclusively for Nuclear Medicine/Radiology Trainees, Consultant Nuclear Medicine Physicians, Technologists, and Consultant Radiologists with an interest in Nuclear Medicine.

This three-day CPD course (which will be held virtually) will cover Oncological PET/CT Imaging primarily. In addition, we will also look at the role of PET/CT in Therapy, Prostate Cancer Imaging, PET/CT in Neuroendocrine Imaging, Neurological imaging (dementia), Cardiac imaging, and Infection/Inflammation.

Led by our clinical lead Dr Randeep Kulshrestha, Clinical Director Radiology & Trust Lead for Nuclear Medicine at University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust, our first two days will include a range of knowledge-share sessions, and PET scan cases, relating to Oncological imaging with Infection/inflammation .

Culminating in an exciting final day, join renowned national and international specialists, including Professor Michael Hofman, Associate Professor Patrick Veit-Haibach and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri, as we look at PET/CT imaging within Cardiac and Dementia cases, as well as Therapy.

PET/CT Technologists are welcome for the full event or you can join us for Day 1 only (with a dedicated ticket available)

Practical Approach to Neuroradiology

Accredited Neuroradiology Course for Radiologists, Neurologists, Radiologists in Training (Registrars) and clinicians/researchers with an interest in this area of clinical practice.

This medical, cpd, event will take place in the beautiful city of Dublin, Ireland, offering an opportunity to learn, discuss & understand some of the practical approaches, relating to neurological conditions. This course is also ideal for those preparing to take their FRCR exams.

This 2-day course, taught by consultant neuroradiologists, provides an analytical approach to the differential diagnoses commonly encountered in adult & paediatric neuroradiological practice, including:

  • Space occupying lesions
  • Stroke & brain haemorrhage
  • White matter disease
  • Phakomatoses

Index imaging studies will be linked with pertinent companion cases to provide a depth of diagnoses. The accompanying practical neuroradiological approach will help to narrow down the differentials and guide patient management.

Clinical leads and faculty: Stuart Currie and Ian Craven.

Gain 10 CPD Points accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists and 12 CPD Points with the RCSI Faculty of Radiologists Dámh na Raideolaithe: Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland
