Course overview

Welcome to our Differentials in Neuroradiology CPD Course for Radiologists in Training (Registrars), keen Radiographers in addition to Consultant Radiologists, Neuroradiologists, and clinicians/researchers looking to review cases relating to Brain and Spine Imaging best practice.

Key highlights

This 2-day course, led by consultant neuroradiologists Stuart Currie and Ian Craven, provides an analytical approach to the differential diagnoses commonly encountered in adult & paediatric neuroradiological practice, including brain and spinal disease, covering:

  • Trauma
  • Space occupying lesions
  • Stroke and brain haemorrhage
  • White matter disease
  • Phakomatoses
  • Dysraphism

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.

This in-person, CPD event offers an opportunity to learn, discuss & understand some of the practical approaches, relating to neurological conditions. Ideal for those preparing to take their FRCR exams, this one-off event supports general radiologists to feel more confident in their approach and diagnosis.

Gain 12 CPD Points in 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.
