Advanced Cranial Ultrasound Tutorial

Do you want to gain advanced knowledge on cranial ultrasound in the preterm and term neonate? Then we have a suggestion for you - participate in the ESN Advanced Cranial Ultrasound Tutorial, developed by Prof Paul Govaert!

This tutorial provides you with the latest knowledge and know-how on this important technique for scanning the neonatal brain using high-frequency sound waves.

It draws heavily on developmental anatomy. To understand disorders of the newborn brain using imaging (like cranial ultrasound) a thorough knowledge of anatomy is imperative. Not only the mature end stage, but especially the condition of the maturing brain in the third trimester is of a fascinating complexity. Many perinatal brain lesions can be understood from parenchymal and vascular anatomy. Also for clinicians with an interest in functional analysis of the newborn brain (EEG, NIRs), and for those interested in neuroprotection (music, language, ...) there is a need to know the anatomical substrates they study in their approach. Although comprehensive, for starters the standard sections and the simple anatomical descriptions are incorporated into the tutorial. The idea is that thorough reading will also lead to inquisitive reactions and improvement of its content.

Fees to attend the course: 150.00 EUR (for ESPR members the fee is reduced to 130.00 EUR)
