This interactive course welcomes neurologists, pathologists, radiologists, diagnostic imagers and other MRI users as well as trainees in these disciplines.
Participants are trained in lectures and practicals to recognize the major lesion patterns on gross and histological preparations of CNS tissue. Such structural changes are compared to corresponding MRI images.
The principal learning objectives are to acquire a basic understanding of diagnostic neuropathology and to apply this knowledge to the interpretation of MR images.
For whom is this course of interest?
Clinical neurologists: The course meets the neuropathology requirements of the ECVN. Because of the rapidly increasing importance of MRI also in private practice, neurologists can greatly profit from this course.
Diagnostic imaging experts: A more profound understanding of neuropathology is undoubtedly an advantage for those who are regularly performing MRI studies of neurological patients.
Pathologists: This course offers a comprehensive and effective introduction to diagnostic neuropathology for diagnostic pathologists and pathology residents. The link to diagnostic imaging and clinical neurology offers insight into the needs of neurologists and radiologists to get adequate pathological feed back.
– Practical gross neuroanatomy in MRI and brain sections
– Recognizing gross lesion patterns.
– Recognizing microscopic lesion patterns.
– Principles of classification and interpretation of lesions
– Principles of MRI reading
These topics prepare the participants for the subsequent lectures and practicals on the interpretation of different lesion types.
– Inflammatory lesions
– Tumors of the nervous system
– Trauma of the brain and spinal cord
– Infarcts of brain and spinal cord
– Toxic-metabolic diseases.
– Degenerative diseases
Typical MRI images of various lesions are presented with corresponding gross and microscopic pathological findings. For each topic practicals are conducted with individual examination and interpretation of images of gross lesions, MRI images. and histological sections (with the microscope). The findings are presented at daily plenary session at the end of the day and discussed.
