Description

The fellowship is offered to a small, selected group, to enhance the interaction.

It is designed for general radiologists reporting emergency cases or wishing to embark on a subspecialization path. While the program will be adjusted as much as possible to meet the participants’ expectations and needs (including selection of lectures), the mentor will endeavour to encompass a broad spectrum of non-traumatic emergencies of the adult patient.

Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases of various difficulty levels, including typical presentations, false positives, false negatives etc. The fellows will review the images, first by themselves and then together with the mentor and the group. The aim is to reproduce the reading room experience, simulating and condensing full length emergency radiology fellowship programs.
