Webinars - online education

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

The topics of these webinars are designed for radiologists and residents in radiology with an interest in head and neck imaging and 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.

Every month (exception July & August) there will be one webinar organized free of charge for ESHNR members. The duration of each webinar is approximately 45 minutes including the presentation and a short Q&A session.
