About Neuroradiology Workshop

Who we are and what we can offer

Neuroradiology Workshop was founded in 2015 by two neuroradiologists. Our goal is to provide innovative, high quality neuroradiology training for a range of healthcare professionals.

Having run a very successful inaugural course for general radiology consultants in February 2016, we have expanded to run three courses in 2017, each individually tailored for radiologists, neurosurgeons and stroke physicians.

Our faculty, as well as other neuroradiologists, now also includes neurosurgeons who are all based at tertiary UK teaching hospitals, with a passion for teaching and imparting our specialist knowledge and expertise.

Teaching Method

Our central tenet is to provide case based neuroradiology teaching through interactive sessions led by experts in that field. Each delegate has an individual Apple Mac computer installed with Osirix (open source PACS software). Delegates are given carefully selected cases, which they can initially examine on their workstation. Cases are chosen across the breadth of neuroradiology with an emphasis on teaching basic principles and common pitfalls.

After viewing the cases themselves, delegates are then taken through the imaging with short summaries highlighting key teaching points and tips. Delegates are encouraged to interact via a keypad voting system at selected points during the sessions, in order to promote discussion and learning, as well as allowing interaction in a constructive and non-confrontational manner.

Neuroradiology Workshop is an official ambassador for Osirix. Click here to find out.
