Course aim:

To provide an update on Head and Neck imaging interpretation and reporting practice, with an emphasis on imaging patients with suspected head and neck cancer but covering also areas such as temporal bones and paranasal sinuses:

  • practical (workstation based learning);
  • stimulating (interactive, challenging cases,
  • immediate feedback); and
  • comprehensive (covering a full range of head and neck imaging topics).

About this unique course:

  • Workstation based-learning (OsiriX on iMac) with delegates working in pairs for interactive learning.
  • Eight sessions over two days:
    • Compartmental Anatomy Overview
    • Nasopharynx and Skull base
    • Oral Cavity and Oropharynx
    • Hypopharynx
    • Larynx
    • Temporal Bones
    • Paranasal Sinuses
    • Mixed Case Review/Quiz
  • Each session includes:
    • How to image and why (e.g. CT/MR best sequences/planes)
    • Anatomy ‘refresher’
    • Reporting ‘checklist’: what to look for and why
    • Case by case tasked-based learning (e.g. ‘what is the T stage of this cancer?’) and
    • feedback, highlighting specific learning points
