Aim of the Course is to teach attendees (1) the effects of uncontrolled epilepsy on childhood development, (2) to utilize knowledge to select pediatric patients for epilepsy surgery using EEG, semiology, imaging and other techniques; (3) to identify patients who require invasive evaluations and be able to choose the appropriate invasive technique; (4) to understand the various surgical resective and non resective approaches in pediatric epilepsy surgery and (5) to manage a Pediatric Epilepsy Surgery team.
We are pleased to announce the 10th International Summer School for Neuropathology and Neuroimaging in Epilepsy.
For the first time, we will offer an integrated approach to combine neuropathology and neuroimaging skills and knowledge. The workshop has been held previously in Germany, Brazil, USA and China with a focus on histopathology. Advanced hands-on histopathology training will still be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors but also includes NOW hands-on skills on reformatting brain MR images. We will offer our participants use cases to further develop their skills and help integrating their knowledge of histology and imaging related to the diagnosis and treatment of human focal epilepsies.
Following learning objectives of the ILAE curriculum with be addressed:
- 1.1 Demonstrate working knowledge of etiologies for focal and generalized epilepsies in children and adults (Level 1-3)
- 1.2 Identify and describe seizure semiology using standardized ILAE terminology and classification systems (Level 1-2)
- 1.5 Accurately order and interpret neuroimaging as it pertains to epilepsy (Level 1-3)
Please register in advance as room will be limited. No on-site registration available. We urge that you apply as soon as possible to reserve your spot and avoid disappointment.
Applications should include a brief description of your current clinical practice and experience in the field of neuropathology and/or epileptology and neuroimaging, together with a short CV.
Please indicate your level of experience in histopathology: A – experienced, B – beginner, C – non-experienced.
