NEW UPCOMING ONLINE EDITION on dates 9 - 11 October 2023, click here for more info!
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.
TMC Academy fellowships are held in a virtual classroom environment on Zoom. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussions making use of their camera and microphone in order to recreate the face-to-face experience.
In this small group environment among your peers, you are free to ask questions, make mistakes, and learn together with the support of the radiologist mentor.
This fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.
"Professor Elna-Marie Larsson is a great lecturer and demonstrated how to apply dementia scoring systems in practice. I am glad that the fellowship involved individual review of the cases prior to discussion, and definitely improving scoring of all the attendees over the course. Thank you!"

"This course will help you become more confident in your readings and the online setup is very convenient especially for those people who cannot travel out of their countries. It is also helpful that we can also have access to the lectures and learning materials even after the sessions which can facilitate further self directed learning."

Dr. Alcaraz, Neuroradiologist (Fellow, Aug 2022)
"Congratulations on an informative course and capable presenter. Enjoyed every minute of it. I have picked up great tips for evaluating the NPH and mid brain/pontine lesions which will be part of "review areas" in my reports."
Dr. Kambiz Maleki, Consultant Radiologist, West Midlands Hospital, UK (Fellow, Nov 2021)
"This course has helped me in understanding the imaging differences of various causes of dementia and how to write a good report for dementia."
Dr. Seema Karan, Consultant Radiologist, Scunthorpe General Hospital, UK (Fellow, Nov 2021)
"Excellent course. I loved solving the cases. Now, I feel more confident in reporting iNPH and dementia cases."
Dr. Miroslava Burghardtová, Radiologist, Czechia (Fellow, Nov 2021)
"I found Dr Larsson extremely patient and an excellent teacher. I appreciated being included fully as a reporting radiographer when every other participant was a radiologist. She obviously took care to avoid cases that would involve me reporting from MRI as opposed to just CT."
Dr. Nicola Cowan, Royal Cornwall Hospital, United Kingdom (Fellow, Nov 2021)
"Elna-Marie is a wonderful teacher with deep knowledge of her subject, very good pedagogical skills and with an amazing way to make everything look easy. I learned so much in such a short time!"
