The International Training Course on Neuroimaging of Epilepsy will be held at the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre of the Montreal Neurological Institute May 14-17, 2020.
The Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, founded by Dr W. Penfield, is a renowned epilepsy surgery center. The McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (BIC) is a research facility that brings together a large group of researchers in neurology, neuroscience, biomedical engineering, physics and computer science. The BIC houses cutting-edge equipment, including 1.5T and 3T MRI scanners, PET, SPECT, MEG and high-performance computational infrastructures.
The course will provide clinicians and scientists working in epilepsy with an understanding of fundamentals and practical skills related to neuroimaging. The course welcomes both individuals with and those without prior expertise in neuroimaging. In addition to offering methodological insights, emphasis will be placed on clinical decision-making and translation to local settings.
Morning sessions will consist of lectures given by a faculty of world-class neuroimagers and epileptologists. In the afternoon, participants will benefit from hand-on sessions guided by a team of experienced tutors, including image acquisition in the MRI suite, quality control procedures, visual MRI analysis, functional MRI, together with established and cutting-edge diagnostic techniques.
