The main aim of these courses is to review the basic and advanced principles of some important topics in neuroradiology imaging. An experienced Brazilian and European guest faculty will share their experience and knowledge using brain CT and MR in different clinical settings. The courses will be composed of lectures on headache, stroke, infectious, demyelinating and tumoural imaging. These lectures will be complemented by interactive sessions, clinical cases-based workshops, that will promote the group case discussions and enable the developing of new imaging diagnostic strategies, which will be useful for the participants clinical practice.
