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.
