Description

Pediatric Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of both Neuroradiology and Pediatric Radiology. Neuroimaging studies in infants and children are often reported by radiological specialists who have little background or experience in this specific field. Through the recreation of real-life scenarios, the Fellow will be exposed to, and guided through a broad range of common and less-common clinical problems, and will thus consolidate his/her experience and build new knowledge that will turn useful when reporting pediatric examinations in the everyday clinical practice.


Availability

Maximum number of seats: 6

Learning objectives

  • To become familiar with the peculiar features of neuroimaging studies in the pediatric age group as compared with adults
  • To learn how to report MRI and CT studies performed in children with a broad range of neurological disorders
  • To understand how the normal appearance of the infant’s brain changes with age
  • To become able to recognize normal and abnormal neuroimaging features, and to avoid pitfalls

Torre Mapfre

Designed by Íñigo Ortíz and Enrique de León on the occasion of the Olympics in 1992, Torre Mapfre is one of the most iconic buildings in Barcelona, due to its height -154 meters (505ft) height, distributed in 44 floors, as well as its unique location by the sea at Vila Olímpica.

The fellowship will be held on the 33rd floor where the TMC offices are located, complete with a gorgeous view of the entire city.

In terms of safety in relation to COVID-19, we will follow any restrictions and recommendations as provided by the Spanish government and the Torre Mapfre management at the time of the fellowship. We will evaluate the situation and inform participants of current rules and recommendations that we feel are best for the safety and comfort of the group.
