This fellowship will cover specific topics that are relatively prevalent in our daily practice, and in which the role of cross-sectional imaging plays an essential role not only for the diagnosis but also in the management of the patients.
Selected topics will first be presented in a lecture format, followed by representative cases mixed with other neuroradiology cases - participants will review the images, first by themselves and then together with the mentor and the group.
- To be familiar with the topography and patterns of brain infarcts, and to understand the role of cross-sectional imaging to suggest their most likely causative mechanism
- To be familiar with the different scales commonly used in clinical practice to define structural brain changes in normal aging and in common neurodegenerative disorders
- To understand the physiology of CSF, and be familiar with the pathophysiology and imaging features of adult hydrocephalus
Programme will include
- Lectures on: “Topography and mechanism of brain infarction”, “CSF physiology and hydrocephalus”, “Semiquantitative assessment of brain MRI studies in aging and neurodegenerative diseases”
- Individual reporting with supervision of Mentor
- Group case discussion of the reported cases
Level II - General radiologist
This fellowship is designed for general radiologists with some experience in reporting neuroradiology cases, or wishing to embark on a subspecialized path. Some basic knowledge on conventional MRI techniques, and on brain MRI interpretation is required.
