Description

Inflammatory and infectious diseases of the central nervous system constitute a relatively large group of brain and spinal cord disorders encountered in everyday practice. It is a group of diseases that require the prompt establishment of diagnosis and immediate management of the patient in order to improve prognosis. Timely recognition of subtle signs on imaging can be crucial for patient survival and overall quality of life. Going through real-time cases, the Fellow will be guided through a broad range of everyday and less common imaging findings, with the aim to consolidate their experience and build confidence in dealing with these more or less unusual imaging findings.

TMC Academy online radiology 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.
Online sessions are recorded so you can review on your own time following the training. 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 neuroinfectious disease fellowship is organised by TMC Academy, an EACCME Trusted Provider.


Testimonials:

"The course on Inflammatory & Infectious Diseases of the CNS approaches a commonly encountered topic through well designed presentations and cases. I believe it is useful for  differential diagnosis of occasionally difficult cases and would recommend the course to colleagues reporting CNS imaging studies”
Dr. Loizos Siakallis (Fellow, Sept 2023)

"This fellowship is an outstanding course that covers a wide range of topics and offers excellent case discussions. It has been instrumental in refreshing and updating my knowledge. I highly recommend this fellowship to anyone seeking to expand their expertise”
Dr. Naji, radiologist in the Neuroteam at TMC (Fellow, Sept 2023)

"The in-depth course content, invaluable resources, and incredible case collection provided by this course, coupled with the instructor's in-depth knowledge, organization, and impeccable teaching skills, are highly commendable. She simply knows how to get every participant engaged!”
Dr. Olusola Patrick Bello, Consultant Radiologist, Canada (Fellow, May 2022)


Learning objectives

  • To become familiar with diverse imaging protocols used for diagnosing inflammation/ infection in the brain and spinal cord
  • To learn when, why and how to image a patient with suspicious neuroinflammation/ neuroinfection
  • To learn how to report MRI or CT studies in neuroinflammation and neuroinfection
  • To understand basic and advanced mechanisms of inflammatory disorders in the brain and spinal cord (ADEM, NMOSD, MOGAD and other disorders)
