Welcome to the SSNR Educational Course 2024

Dear colleagues

We are pleased to invite you to the annual Educational Course organized by the Swiss Society of Neuroradiology (SSNR) focusing on “Nontraumatic Emergencies: Brain and Spine”. The event will take place on Saturday, November 09, 2024, in the Auditorium Ettore Rossi, at the Inselspital in Bern.

The thematic core of this year's program revolves around the intricate exploration of Nontraumatic Emergencies: Brain and Spine. Specifically, the course will delve into the nuanced dimensions of (non)-inflammatory, infectious, and toxic brain emergencies, alongside spinal emergencies and pediatric emergencies. Esteemed speakers with high neuroradiological expertise will collaborate with clinical experts to present an interdisciplinary perspective. The highlight of that educational endeavor will be an interactive case session, offering participants a practical platform to apply acquired insights.

Designed with special attention to enhancing the diagnostic interpretative skills of radiologists and neuroradiologists in brain emergency imaging, the course extends its outreach to non-radiological affiliated clinicians. Associated specialists including neurologists, neurosurgeons, spine surgeons, head and neck surgeons, pediatricians, emergency department physicians, and ophthalmologists who want to extend their knowledge on image interpretation of brain, head & neck and spine emergencies are warmly encouraged to participate.

Our SSNR Educational Course has a high demand on dialogue and promotion of close cooperation between the different professionals and we would like to continue that interdisciplinary collaboration.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Bern on November 09, 2024!

Prof. Dr. med. Franca Wagner                                                  Dr. med. Johanna Lieb
