Dear Colleagues,

It is a great honour and pleasure to offer a warm welcome to the 16th Cycle of the European Course in Neuroradiology (ECNR), the most comprehensive and popular course in the field of Neuroradiology, considered by many to be among the best in the world.

In these times, ESNR strives and continues to grow and adapt, remaining always motivated to provide the highest standard in education. ECNR recently finished the 15th cycle with 400 participants attending each module, not only from Europe but from all over the world.

This course is an opportunity to learn and discuss in depth the most relevant topics in clinical neuroradiology. The program is designed to educate and stimulate. Renowned teachers will share their knowledge and update you on exciting new developments in their respective specialties and areas of expertise.

The lectures will provide state-of-the-art information in all areas of neuroradiology. During workshops, there will be a chance to interactively discuss cases and relevant clinical questions with the teachers.

By now we have learned to live with COVID-19 but the disease has brought grief, suffering and loss to many of us. Although we are all hoping on a return to normal with the new vaccines soon, Module 1 of the 16th Cycle of the European Course in Neuroradiology will be an online course. We will miss being together, talking during the breaks and lunches and enjoying the location. We will miss being with you – being with friends.

But we are ready to provide you with the same excellent content online. Your trusted and renowned faculty will virtually be with you. Most lectures will be given live and all workshops will be live and proceed in small interactive groups, exactly as you were used to. And since we will not provide any coffee or lunches, we have reduced the registration fee by €200.

Since this will be a live meeting, please carefully note the timing of the lectures that will follow CET. In addition, registered attendees will be able to access all lectures online for a limited time after they were presented.

This module will also have an online MCQ examination that is fully approved by EBNR and UEMS, counting towards obtaining your European Diploma in Neuroradiology.

While we strive to offer the best education in the field of neuroradiology, the safety, health, and well-being of our participants will always be the highest priority for ESNR. We hope the situation will return to normal soon, however we are aware that the situation is still evolving, and we will consider putting new actions in place if necessary, in the following months.

We look forward to meeting you online!
