Topic

The aim of the course Neuroradiological Practice is to provide the medical students a detailed theoretical overview and a practical approach to
- the advantages, limitations of the instruments used in neuroradiology (conventional radiology, ultrasound, DSA, CT, MRI) and the possibilities provided by them,
- the examination algorithms,
- the practical imaging protocols for those instruments in different neuropsychiatric disorders,
- the characteristic imaging symptoms of the essential disease groups,
- the differential diagnostic possibilities,
- while emphasizing this knowledge in the acute states of the different clinical specialties.
The final aim is to educate general practitioners and those who are going to begin residency in radiology, neuropsychiatry and neurosurgery to
- know which are the imaging possibilities,
- properly choose from them,
- know the essential constituents of a properly performed neuroradiological examination,
- know what are the possible results of the examinations,
thus not missing the necessary examinations, but not abusing the imaging capacity.
