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).

 

ESHNR WEBINAR PROGRAMME

December 4, 2018: Soraya Robinson, Vienna
An introduction to imaging of orbital pathology
6pm (Vienna time)
(level II European Training Curriculum)

CLICK HERE TO REGISTER

Optimizing examination technique and familiarity with most important anatomic landmarks of the conical orbit are prerequisites for correct recognition of pathology.
The aim of this lecture is to familiarize the audience with the significance of orbital compartments, guide through the strengths of various imaging modalities, to cover tricks and tips, how to maximize their outcome and to provide a roadmap for interpretation avoiding typical pitfalls.
The optic nerve is part of the central nervous system, covered by dura, arachnoid and pia and enters the orbit together with the ophthalmic artery through the optic canal. Superolaterally is the superior orbital fissure with cranial nerves, III, IV, V1 and VI, as well as the superior ophthalmic vein. The posterior opening at the inferolateral border of the orbit is the inferior orbital fissure for the maxillary nerve and the inferior ophthalmic vein. Innervation and function of the cone forming extraocular muscles will be addressed and the importance of differentiation extraconal, conal and intraconal disease will be emphasized. Bulb and lacrimal gland pathology, as well as relevant diseases of neighbouring structures, such as paransal sinuses, bone and meninges followed by postoperative findings are an integral part of the lecture.
Characteristic features of most common entities will be covered enabling the participants to analyze the orbit accordingly and pick up pathognomonic signs.

Learning objectives :
1. To review the orbital anatomy and the key anatomic structures relevant for a compartment based differential diagnosis
2. To illustrate the imaging aspect of common and less common orbital masses and inflammatory conditions affecting the orbit
3. To highlight potential pitfalls and how to avoid missing out on relevant pathology
4. To provide the essential tools for a comprehensive radiologic report

Learning objectives :
1. To describe the sino-nasal anatomy and the key anatomic structures predisposing to inflammatory disease
2. To review the imaging aspect of common and less common inflammatory patterns
3. To highlight potential pitfalls and how to avoid misdiagnosing neoplastic disease as inflammatory lesions
4. To present a systematic approach for a clinically relevant radiologic report

 

February 5, 2019: Steven Connor, London

2. To review the key imaging findings precluding cochlear implantation or having an impact on the surgical approach
3. To discuss the normal imaging aspect of the most common types of cochlear implants used currently
4. To illustrate typical examples of less favorable implant position, malposition, as well as other causes of implant dysfunction

Differential diagnosis of jaw masses
(level II – III European Training Curriculum)

Learning objectives
1. To become familiar with the anatomy of the jaws.
2. To learn which imaging technique to use and how.
3. To understand the typical imaging appearance of jaw lesions.
4. To learn how to differentiate benign from malignant jaw lesions.

 

June 11, 2019: Timothy Beale, London
Incidental findings in the head and neck
(level II – III European Training Curriculum)

Learning objectives
1. To review the most common incidentalomas seen on routine head and neck examinations
2. To discuss their differential diagnosis and key imaging features
3. To describe the clinical reasoning and recommendations for further work-up
4. To highlight the significance of effectively counseling the prescribing physicians and their patients.
