This Online Fellowship is designed for radiologists who would like to become more confident when reporting CT and MRI of the brain in dementia.
The course includes an overview of the classification of dementia disorders, diagnostic findings on CT and MRI and training to provide a structured report with a clinically relevant conclusion.
Each session will start with a lecture. After the lecture you will be challenged with practicing on real-life anonymised key cases from the TMC academy teaching file. Reporting templates including recognized standardized rating scales will be used to help write adequate reports.
The individual case readings will be followed by mentor's interpretations, questions and comments, along with a group discussion.
Maximum number of seats: 15
Only one seat left
- To describe the characteristic imaging features of different dementia disorders: neurodegenerative dementia (including Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia), vascular dementia and secondary dementia.
- To describe the characteristic imaging features of normal pressure hydrocephalus and other diseases that can be associated with dementia such as Parkinson’s disease.
- To interpret CT and MRI in patients with clinical suspicion of dementia, confidently write a structured report including the use of standardized rating scales for atrophy and white matter lesions and provide a clinically relevant conclusion.
Programme will include
- Lectures on imaging of the brain for dementia workup.
- Individual case reading including practice on the use of rating scales.
- Group case discussion of the reported cases
Level II - General radiologist
Intermediate level for radiologists with basic knowledge of CT and MRI of the brain.
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.
