SEMINARS IN PEDIATRIC NEUROIMAGING

November 7-8, 2020 Sydney, Australia

2020 virtual Course

2020 Virtual Course
SPIN Will Be Held Online

Seminars in Pediatric Neuroimaging (SPIN) is presented by a dynamic faculty based in the world’s leading children’s hospitals. Our comprehensive course has been extremely well received in the Southern Hemisphere. Now in our third consecutive year, we present SPIN 2020 virtually from Sydney as we try to beat the pandemic blues and bring the world closer through our knowledge sharing platform.

Our course has previously been CME-accredited by The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiology.

About SPIN

SPIN was conceptualized in Malmo, Sweden by group of friends during ESNR 2017. The main aim is to foster education in Pediatric Neuroradiology , especially in areas where it is not strongly represented. Pediatric Neuroradiology is a diversified evolving subspecialty. Innovative, didactic and interactive teaching platform will be the key features to make this complex subject interesting to the participating audience. The topics will be designed to keep abreast with recent literature updates whilst emphasizing clinico-neuroradiology approach to common and uncommon intriguing pathologies encountered in routine practice. Based on our successful courses in Adelaide in 2018 and Sao Paulo in 2019 , we intend to organise regular events at different places by jointly co-ordinating with local bodies and national organisations.

The goal of SPIN- an academic venture, has always been to make friends as we reach out to people with education, training and sharing knowledge.

SPIN OF THE MONTH

SPIN Of The Month, May 2020

QUESTION
  • Nineteen years old girl with known epilepsy has recent right hemiparesis.

  • She had vertical strabismus and ptosis in the left eye.

     

  • Dr Özgür Öztekin

  • Health Science University, Turkey

     

  • MRI scan at 19 years of age shows an enlargement of the left lateral ventricle predominantly the posterior body and occipital horn with a large porencephalic cyst extending along the cerebral convexity and middle cranial  fossa and prominent extra axial CSF spaces.
  • Subtle cortico-pial calcifications are noted along the left frontotemporoparietal  convexity with a lipoma.

  • Small caliber of the left cerebral peduncle is a manifestation of  reduction in the left cortico-spinal fibers.
  • Encephalocraniocutaneous lipomatosis (ECCL) is a rare neurocutaneous syndrome characterized by unilateral scalp, facial, and ocular lesions and ipsilateral cerebral malformations. 
  • It is characterized by unilateral lipomas of the cranium, face, and neck, ipsilateral lipodermoids of the eye, and ipsilateral brain anomalies.
  • The most common neuroimaging findings are hemiatrophy, dilated ventricles, porencephalic cysts, abnormal calcifications, intracranial lipoma, and cranial asymmetry. Most patients present with seizures and mental retardation. The hairless lesion of the scalp (“naevus psiloliparus”) is a pathognomonic feature .
