24th Zurich Course on Diagnostic and Interventional Neuroradiology
Event Date:Monday, August 22, 2016 (All day) to Saturday, August 27, 2016 (All day)
About the Event:
Based on the success of combining diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology in the past courses, we are pleased to announce the 24th Zurich Course to be held August 22 to 27, 2016 at the Department of Neuroradiology of the University Hospital of Zurich. Since its inception in 1992, the primary educational goal of the Zurich Course has been to link neuroradiology with fundamental neuroanatomy, neurobiology and clinical manifestations of neurologic disease. Formal lectures, interactive case discussions, video- and hands-on workshops are the educational format. This year, the diagnostic part of the course will cover selected topics on fundamental and advanced clinical neuroimaging of the brain, including neuroanatomy, neurooncology, neuroimmunology, neuro-vascular disease with emphasis on hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke and neuroradiology of the skull base. The interventional part of the course will cover almost the entire spectrum of endovascular interventional neuroradiology including acute ischemic stroke, intra- and extracranial atherosclerotic disease, vascular lesions of the head and neck, hypervascular skull base and intracranial tumors, dural arteriovenous fistulae, brain AVMs, spinal cord AVMs and intracranial aneurysms. The teaching activities of the Course are designed in such a way that they cover all relevant aspects of each topic, from basic considerations to advanced applications and address both the beginner as well as the experienced practitioner in the field. Enrollment is possible in the diagnostic part, the interventional part, or the entire course.
