The focus of this year's conference is "Imaging the Brain for Diagnosis and Treatment Responses in Neuro-Oncology."

Expert clinician leaders will discuss the fundamental principles of imaging and discover how rapidly neuroradiology is advancing the field of neuroscience, and how to utilize these advances in practice.

Latest adopted standards for assessing treatment response, innovations utilizing imaging surrogates to predict where tumors will invade next, and the addition of genomics as an integrated “fourth dimension” to 2-D and 3-D imaging will be reviewed.

Profession-specific break-out sessions will provide additional opportunities for focused discussions and interactions. 

This course is designed for all specialists working in the field of neuro-oncology: neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuroradiologists, neuropathologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, trainees, and interested allied health professionals.
