European Course in Head and Neck Neuroradiology

Dear Colleagues,

it is a pleasure and a privilege to announce the European Course in Head and Neck Neuroradiology.

This level III advanced course is a newly designed educational program for radiologists, neuroradiologists and clinical colleagues. The European Course in Head and Neck Neuroradiology consists of 2 modules of 3 days each and is aimed to provide sound knowledge and competence in imaging strategy and interpretation covering the entire head and neck.

The course encompasses 30 lectures and 12 workshops within each module. Lectures include the anatomy and an updated spectrum of pathologies comprehensively covering imaging in the head and neck.

Module I - Head Nov 5-7.2020 consists of:

  • Lectures and workshops regarding the cranial nerves, skull base, nose and sinuses, orbit and sella, temporal bone, cerebella-pontine angle as well as the jaw and teeth.
  • Focus lectures: targeted on the suprahyoid spaces, advanced imaging and Meniere disease
  • Clinical lectures: summarizing “what the radiologist should know and report“ from a clinical perspective.
  • Diagnostic strategy lecture: providing “take home“ recommendations for imaging strategies and
  • Interactive diagnostic highlight lectures: common and rare diseases discussed between faculty and participants

Module II - Neck early 2021 based on the same concept.

  • Topics: encompass the infrahyoid neck, anatomy and pathology of the pharynx, oral cavity, salivary, thyroid and parathyroid glands as well as lymph nodes, head and neck vascular diseases, congenital lesions, pseudotumours and lymphoma. Brachial plexus anatomy/pathology and spine derived pathologies supplement the Module II.

Each module will end with a multiple choice exam. Attendees will receive a certificate of participation and confirmation of CME credits (subject to approval by EACCME).

Attendance in both modules and successful standing of the exams qualifies radiologists/neuroradiologists to participate in a final exam at the annual ESNR meeting. Successful contestants in the final exam will be entitled to receive the European Diploma in Head and Neck Neuroradiology.

The course program is constituted by a renowned faculty of international speakers.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Malta!
