This advanced course is addressed to neuroradiologists, head & neck radiologists, general radiologists, radiology residents and fellows, as well as colleagues from related specialties, including neurosurgery, head & neck surgery, maxillofacial surgery, ophthalmology, endocrinology, radiotherapy and MR physics. We are very pleased to have the international experts prof. dr. Ric Harnsberger, prof. dr. Andrea Rossi and dr. Marc Antoine Labeyrie as part of the faculty.

Sessions are organized per theme: orbit, clivus & petroclival junction, sella en para-/suprasellar space, vascular pathology, cranial nerves VII-XII, and fetal and pediatric skull base imaging. In each of these, there will be refreshers on anatomy and pathology, but emphasis will be put on the latest developments in imaging, diagnosis, treatment and post-treatment imaging. The course language is English.

Leiden is a charming host city, built along the canals, with a vibrant history, harbouring the eldest university and the eldest botanical garden in The Netherlands, is home to the eldest Observatory in operation in the world and has several museums. You can experience all that on a bicycle! Finally, it is also a chance to meet old friends and colleagues and to make new friends.

We hope to see you in Leiden!
