The fellowship is aimed at Emergency radiologists, physicians or neurologists aiming for competency in the diagnosis of stroke or neuroradiologist wanting to refresh/ update their knowledge in the area of acute stroke.
This Online fellowship includes an overview of stroke, the history of the development of our present knowledge in this area, the CT and MRI parameters and findings that will allow proper imaging and confident diagnosis in this area.
In addition to two lectures covering some theoretical aspects, most of the fellowship will be in the form of case demos starting with a 15 min presentation, followed by anonymised real radiological cases where the candidate will be challenged for a diagnosis and followed by a group discussion of the cases.
Maximum number of seats: 15
- Upgrade your knowledge needed to read stroke scans by immersion in a learning environment without the distraction of daily work
- Become familiar and feel confident with basic and advanced stroke imaging as encountered in daily practice
- Discriminate between stroke and its mimics to avoid pitfalls
- Learn to construct an informative report that will address the needs of the referring clinician.
Programme will include
- Lectures discussing the different types, causes and predisposing factors for the development of stroke, the complication and some of the stroke mimics.
- Individual reading of selected cases with group case discussion
Level II - General radiologist
Great for Level II General/Emergency radiologists or physician aiming for competency in the diagnosis of stroke. Level II Neurologists wanting to specialize in the area of stroke neurology would also benefit from this fellowship, as well as level III neuroradiologists wanting to refresh/update their knowledge in the area of stroke.
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.
