Description

EVENT DESCRIPTION
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.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• 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
This fellowship is designed for general or in-training 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.

    Dr. Àlex Rovira is a full time neuroradiologist, who gained his MD in 1983 at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. After formal training in Radiology at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital (Barcelona), he undertook a visiting fellowship at Shands Hospital (Gainesville, University of Florida) in 1989. He is specialised in diagnostic neuroradiology, and head and neck radiology, with particular interest in demyelinating diseases, stroke, neuro-oncology, hepatic encephalopathy, and head and neck tumors. He received the European Qualification in Neuroradiology (issued by the European Board in Neuroradiology) in 2007. He is currently Past-President of the European Society of Neuroradiology, and member of the Executive Committee of the Spanish Society of Radiology, of the World Federation of Neuroradiological Societies, and of MAGNIMS (European Multicenter Collaborative Research Network on MRI in MS). He is on the editorial boards of the American Journal of Neuroradiology, and, Neuroradiology and MS Forum, and member of the International Advisory Board on Clinical Trials in MS. Dr Rovira has authored or co-authored more than 320 original papers, 25 review papers, 25 book chapters or monographs, and more than 400 invited conference presentations.
