NEURORADIOLOGY WORKSHOP FOR NEUROSURGEONS

    • Date: Tuesday 7th February 2017
    • Venue: Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
    • Course Aimed At: ST1 – ST6
    • Course Fee: £200.00
    • Course Fee for RCSEd Members: £175.00

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh has awarded 6 CPD Points

Overview:

Delegates will each have a desktop radiology workstation, which contains a database of intracranial neuroradiology images. The software used simulates how a clinician would view images at work and this software is officially used by the Royal College of Radiologists to conduct their examinations. An interactive approach is used via case based learning with discussion of the images, how different imaging modalities can be applied for the management of patients followed by the neurosurgical approach to correlate with the imaging. Learning points will be reinforced with bite size power point presentations during the sessions. There is no didactic lecture based teaching.

Learning Style

Interactive Workshop Case Based

Aims & Objectives

  1. To understand the fundamentals of current neuroimaging techniques.
  2. The role imaging plays in assisting neurosurgeons in diagnosis and surgical planning of common intracranial pathologies.
  3. To inform and improve the day to day working neuroradiology knowledge of neurosurgeons.
  4. Enhanced learning through case based learning and discussion.
  5. To instill confidence in delegates approach to imaging for the FRCS (SN) examination.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this one day course, delegates will be able to:

  1. Interpret neuro-radiological investigations for multiple intracranial pathologies.
  2. Describe the impact and influence on patient management of neuro-radiological investigations.
  3. Apply knowledge of radiological investigations in practice, both in theatre and on the wards.
  4. Discuss how imaging is used to guide operative approach to a broad range of pathologies.
