Clinical radiology webinars

Upcoming webinars 


Clinical radiology trainee webinar series 

Back by popular demand, this webinar series is designed for clinical radiology trainees. There will be 20 different sessions over the course of 2021 and this page will be continuously updated with new sessions so please to visit regularly or email conf@rcr.ac.uk to be kept up-to-date. 

Please note that these sessions are free to attend for both members, Fellows and non-members and we will record as many as possible for viewing at a later date if you aren't able to attend the live webinar. 

Post-mortem CT
Wednesday 9 June 2021, 19:00-20:00 (BST)
Led by: Dr Siobhan McLaughlin, NHS Lothian 
Please note that this session will not be recorded due to the sensitive nature of the topic.

This talk will briefly outline the background to and  explain the uses, utility and limitations of post mortem CT, and illustrate these points with multiple case studies of both suspicious and non suspicious deaths.

Learning objectives: 

  1. The appropriate use of PMCT
  2. Normal Variants in PMCT
  3. The importance of team working in a forensic setting

How to approach a CT neck on-call

Thursday 17 June 2021, 19:00-20:00 (BST)
Led by: Dr Elizabeth Loney, Associate Medical Director and Consultant Radiologist, Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS FT.

Neck imaging is often considered to be a challenging area for Radiologists. The anatomy is complex, some pathologies are site specific and access to specialist training may be limited. This presentation will start by looking at anatomical neck spaces and then concentrate on pathologies trainees might encounter on-call, excluding facial trauma which has been covered in another presentation. A case- base approach will be used to encourage audience participation.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand the principles of compartmental neck space anatomy
  2. Understand when it is appropriate to image the neck on-call and how to protocol a CT neck
  3. Recognise commonly encountered pathologies on call
  4. Learn how to produce a useful, structured report

Imaging in small vessel disease: current concepts and future developments

Thursday 27 May 2021, 14:00-15:00 (BST)
Led by Professor Meike Vernooij,  Erasmus MC, Netherlands 
This presentation will cover current concepts and recent advances in imaging of small vessel diseases. Imaging biomarkers applied presently in everyday clinical practice (white matter hyperintensities, lacunes, microbleeds, enlarged perivascular spaces) will be discussed, including methods for quantification and patterns specific to common and rare underlying small vessel pathology. Recent insights regarding more diffuse brain changes (e.g. tissue microstructure, (dis)connectivity) associated with small vessel diseases will be shared, including (spatially dependent) consequences for disease risk. Finally, developments in the area of direct imaging of small vessel pathology will be highlighted.

Learning objectives: 

  1. Acquiring knowledge on the conventional focal imaging markers of small vessel diseases, including common patterns indicative of specific common or rare underlying pathology.
  2. Understanding recent insights regarding diffuse brain changes associated with small vessel pathology.
  3. Learning about advances in direct imaging of small vessel anatomy and (mal)function.
