Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to join the 2nd module of the 2nd cycle of the European Course in Head and Neck Neuroradiology (ECHNR) taking place May 26-28, 2022. The ECHNR is planned as an onsite live course with a renowned faculty lecturing in a safe and stimulating atmosphere in Zurich. It is a privilege to host you as participants and friends face to face - unless new covid regulations require a change to a totally online course.

The European course in head and Neck Neuroradiology is an established, comprehensive and advanced level III educational course for radiologists, neuroradiologists and clinical colleagues. Each module has been designed as a modern, state of the art program covering H&N with 31 lectures and 12 workshops.

Evaluation scores of 95.2 satisfaction for course content and 94,6/100 for the course overall mirror the high degree of approval by attendees.

Module 2 of the ECHNR includes:

  • Lectures and Workshops targeted to supra- and infrahyoid space anatomy, pathologies of the salivary glands, pharynx, oral cavity and larynx, parapharyngeal and carotid space lesions,

Additional topics encompass classification of vascular malformations and hemangiomas, brachial plexus and thoracic outlet anatomy and pathologies, head H&N lymphoma and IgG4 related disease, structural and dynamic MR and CT angiography applications;

  • Focus lectures are targeted on perfusion and diffusion in H&N lesions, head and neck infections, changes in the 8th ed. of AJCC staging of H&N cancer and the evolving face of post-treatment changes,
  • AI = artificial and applied intelligence bridges the gap between heavy workload and improved and efficient image interpretation and reporting
  • Clinical lectures summarize “what the radiologist should know and report”

from a clinical expert`s perspective.

  • Interactive diagnostic highlight sessions discuss “lessons learnt cases” regarding imaging strategy and diagnosis in common and rare disorders.

Course objectives:

  • to provide sound knowledge in imaging strategy by both morphological and advanced techniques,
  • to provide competence in image interpretation over a wide range of H&N
    pathologies including new entities,
  • to offer lively interaction with renown teachers and clinical experts
    during lectures and workshops using questions and polls,
  • to obtain a Diploma in Head and Neck Neuroradiology (provided by EBNR)
    following successful participation in the Exam at the end of module 1 and
    2 and by passing a final exam

Registration is now open for module 2 (scheduled May 26-28, 2022 in Zurich, Switzerland).

Provided the on-site course is not feasible due to covid government restrictions, the course will be rescheduled as a full online course (no hybrid course).

We welcome you from all over the world - “always sit in the first row

to share the experience of a new onsite interactive lively course and an enjoyable way to expand knowledge and make friends with colleagues and teachers.

Take advantage of the particular attractive rates at early registration or ESNR membership early registration until March 31st, 2022
