A doença vascular cerebral é a primeira causa de morte em Portugal
e contribui para a incapacidade permanente de uma importante faixa populacional.

De forma crescente, os estudos ultrassonográficos da circulação cérvico-cefálica, a par da neuroimagem parenquimatosa,
têm-se revelado como um meio auxiliar de diagnóstico precioso e indispensável no estudo e monitorização destes doentes.

4th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology

In 2018 the European Academy of Neurology will come to Portugal! This will certainly be a decisive moment for portuguese Neurology! In line with previous editions of the meetings, Neurosonology will be a strong topic. Two specific workshops will take place on Neurosonology: On the 17th of June there will be na hands-on course on “Ultrasound in vascular diagnosis - Level 1”. This course will offer all participants the foundations for the performance and interpretation of neurosonological techniques in the diagnosis of neurovascular conditions. Of particular interest will be the hands-on part, where participants will be able to aply these principles, being tutored by some of the main european experts in the field. On the 19th of june there will be a second neurosonological teaching course “Advanced Neurosonology - Level 3”. In this course, the participants will receive formation on more advanced techniques such as detection of patent foramen ovale, transorbital neurosonology, sonothrombolysis and ultrasound study of basal ganglia for Movement Disorders. This will certainly be an opportunity both for physcians starting their formation in Neurosonology and experienced practicioners interested in expanding their skills.

We wish everyone a neurosonological EAN!
