Webinars - online education

The European Society of Head and Neck Radiology is happy to announce introduction of a new series of online webinars.

Topics will be designed for radiologists and residents in radiology with an interest in head and neck imaging and will focus on in-depth knowledge of the pertinent anatomy, pathology, clinical-radiologic and imaging-related issues in the field of head and neck and maxillo-facial radiology. The learning objectives are oriented on the Head and Neck Chapters of the European Training Curriculum for Radiology.

Webinars are planned once per month and will be presented by distinguished colleagues within our society.
Participation will be free of charge for ESHNR members.
Each webinar will last approximately 45 minutes (40 mins presentation and time for discussion/questions).
