This three-day neuroradiology course, led by Nafi Aygun, MD, includes the four domains of neuroradiology in brain, spine, head and neck and pediatric neuroimaging. The material will be nearly exclusively centered on CT and MR imaging with advanced application techniques. General disease categories of vascular, inflammatory, demyelinating, traumatic, degenerative, neoplastic, congenital and metabolic diseases of the CNS and the head and neck in adults and children will be covered with case material.
Four 30-minute lectures each day will introduce common themes for differential diagnoses and lay the groundwork for extensive time devoted to reviewing a library of cases ranging in difficulty and disease type. Attendees can personalize their course by selecting more cases from one subspecialty area than another to remedy perceived weaknesses.

Faculty was fantastic! Not only were they happy and pleasant to answer your questions despite how basic they may be, they were often sharing valuable experiences they had.

This is the most useful course I've ever attended. The combination of interpreting actual cases at a workstation with a broad spectrum of pathology, and the opportunity to directly communicate with the expert faculty for their approach to different cases, will allow me to apply what I've learned. It goes above and beyond any didactic conference and is more high-yield than any short visiting fellowship.
