ASKLEPIOS Course on
Challenges in Head and Neck Imaging

March 30-31, 2017; Serock/Poland
Course informationThis course is aimed at last-year residents, general radiologists as well as neuroradiologists and intends to offer practical insights into head and neck challenging problems encountered in every-day practice. Hence, it focuses on clinical queries, like "the neck mass in a paediatric or adult patient" or the "long standing unilateral nasal obstruction", as it happens in real-life. These and other challenging questions will be addressed by clear and practical problem-solving approaches. In particular, special consideration will be given to two strategies: how to handle a specific challenge via key anatomy findings and imaging features, and how to build up a report with a checklist suggested by experts. During these one and a half days a unique group of faculty members, well known for their experience in head and neck imaging will offer top quality lectures and case-based interactive panel discussions in small groups.


Learning objectives
  • to understand the indications, limitations and comparative values of each of the cross-sectional imaging modalities in challenging clinical queries
  • to provide the rationale of reporting on the basis of a checklist
  • to become familiar with current treatment options in head and neck lesions
  • to understand how imaging information impacts treatment choice, planning, and stratification
