Visiting Professorship Programme Balkan Congress
within the ESR Support Initiative

Advanced Neuroimaging
October 12, 2017; Budapest/Hungary
Course informationThe course is aimed at senior residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in advanced neuroimaging. It is designed as an intense one-day programme, directly linked to the Balkan Congress of Radiology, as part of the ESR Support Initiative. A particular focus will be on the cranial-cervical junction, the functional anatomy of the limbic lobe, association and commissural fasciculi, quantitative MRI biomarkers, inflammatory diseases of the brain, and post-treatment imaging in brain tumours. Renowned European experts will ensure a high-quality teaching programme, combining lectures and interactive case-based discussions.

Learning objectives
  • to describe the use of advanced imaging for brain tumour treatment prognosis and define the differences between true progression and pseudo progression from radiation necrosis
  • to review MRI protocols and features for diagnosis and differential diagnosis of inflammatory conditions of the brain, except MS
  • to explain the need for quantitative biomarkers and show examples used for the whole brain, a specific anatomic region, or a voxel
  • to understand the various meanings of 'limbic' and the functional interaction between the Insular and the limbic lobe
  • to know the functional anatomy of the association tracts involved in language and of the corpus callosum
