Brain tumours are encountered commonly by radiologists who are dealing with General Radiology during their routine real life work up. Sometimes it is easy to establish the right diagnosis, but sometimes it is challenging.
This course will cover almost all tumours inside the skull and especially intends to give Radiologists the right tools to make the differential and correct diagnosis of a tumour. Follow-up imaging in glial tumours may also be troublesome in many cases and this topic will be discussed in all aspects to build a guide for all attendees when reporting the follow-up of brain tumour cases.
The advantages of each imaging technique in the differential diagnosis of brain tumours will be presented in detail. The case discussions will help attendees to understand how to approach brain tumour cases and will improve their skills for the future when reporting real –life daily cases. The case discussions will include some common and uncommon cases, but each one of them will have a message for the attendees in order to help them improve their experience on brain tumour imaging.
At the completion of the course each attendee will for sure feel more confident in reporting brain tumours.
The fellow will be provided with the reporting templates and referring questionnaire, developed by the mentor. Up-to-date international recommendations, protocols, patient information and some newest, practical scientific articles would also be shared with the participants.
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.

"I really enjoy the course over past three days. Professor Cem is an excellent teacher; he is so knowledgeable yet so humble. The content of teaching was concise, relevant and practical to daily reporting. I learnt a lot of great tips and tricks from Professor Cem. The interactive case-based discussion is extremely useful to reinforce our understanding and memory. Thank you very much, Professor Cem and the organizer!”

"An extremely useful course with an excellent and kind mentor, who gave an invaluable summary of brain tumors and was always keen to answer any question regarding this rather difficult topic of neuroradiology. Cem also provided a light and cheerful atmosphere, in which it was easier to learn.”
Dr. Georgina Gati, Consultant Radiologist, Telemedicine Clinic (Fellow, Oct 2022)
"Great course, a must for every radiologist. Brain tumors are always a problematic area even for a specialist neuroradiologist. Missing a brain tumor or giving a wrong diagnosis can have serious consequences. Attending this course enhances very much our ability to deal with such cases.”
