Hot topics in neuroradiology 2017

Thursday 19 October 2017
Venue address: 
Manchester Conference Centre, Weston Building, Sackville Street, Manchester, M1 3BB
CPD credits: 

Neuroimaging is a rapidly advancing field with frequent developments in scanning modalities, protocols, clinical indications, patient management, and post-processing techniques.

More of these examinations are requested outside of dedicated neuroscience centres and the aim of this course is to provide an introduction and suggestions of how to utilise and interpret some of the more advanced principles in the management, acquisition and interpretation of structural and functional imaging studies of the brain and spine. 

The topics are intended to focus on the clinical issues which are at the forefront both clinically and politically.

The course is designed primarily for DGH consultants with an interest in neuroradiology; it would also be suitable for trainees interested in neuroradiology.

Meeting organiser: Dr Gerardine Quaghebeur, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford
