Pediatric Neuroradiology is a subspecialty of both Neuroradiology and Pediatric Radiology. Neuroimaging studies in infants and children are often reported by radiological specialists who have little background or experience in this specific field. Through the recreation of real-life scenarios, the Fellow will be exposed to, and guided through a broad range of common and less-common clinical problems, and will thus consolidate his/her experience and build new knowledge that will turn useful when reporting pediatric examinations in the everyday clinical practice.
