The fellowship is an overview of the neck and paranasal sinuses, including dedicated coverage of head & neck cancer as well as traumatic injuries, in three consecutive 4-5-hour sessions. There is another short online fellowship covering other H&N topics (skull base and orbits).
One to two daily lectures will provide the knowledge to be applied during the case reading sessions. Questions and comments are encouraged during the lectures. After each lecture the fellows will individually review and read around 10 selected clinical cases. This will be followed by mentor's interpretations, questions and comments, along with group discussion. Reporting templates will be suggested to help write adequate reports. The participants will have continuous access to the cases, from the week before through the week after the fellowship.
In this fellowship with a limited number of 15 radiologists you will enhance and strengthen your knowledge and understanding of head and neck imaging. Interactivity will be established through Zoom platform, and webcam use is encouraged to enhance the experience of a virtual reading room. At least 20 additional cases will also be available for individual review, along with respective diagnoses.
At the completion of the program the fellows should be able to identify common pathology covered in the fellowship and to answer frequent clinical questions in their reports.
Maximum number of seats: 15
- To identify the normal anatomic structures and recognize the main pathologic processes
- To define the differentiating imaging features of pathologic processes and to look for specific pertinent findings
- To understand the clinical questions and how to address them by clinically relevant reports
Programme will include
- Lectures on adult and pediatric imaging of the neck and paranasal sinuses
- Individual review of the cases
- Interpretation by the mentor with group case discussion
Level III - Subspecialisation training
Intermediate to advanced level, for radiologists with some head & neck/neuroradiology experience.
The training platform runs entirely in the browser but the online PACS places a considerable load on the hardware and internet connection when viewing and loading cases.
