The course provide the students with essential knowledge of:
- the equipment and the proper use of various diagnostic and interventional neuroradiological techniques,
- the potentials of single imaging techniques in the study of the CNS,
- their appropriateness in relation to the clinical problem and the cost/benefit ratio,
- the most correct diagnostic algorithms in the different clinical eventualities.
Therefore the student will be able to identify time by time the more suitable diagnostic and interventional neuroradiological procedures in the management of patients with pathology of the CNS.
