About HOT TOPICS 2020

We hope you are as excited to attend this edition of our event as we are organizing it! The Hot Topics in Neuroradiology course series is one of the most prestigious of its kind in Brazil.

The course was born from our desire to learn the most advanced neuroimaging concepts from the best teachers from around the world and to share this knowledge. Since 2015, we have been inviting the most prominent medical speakers to teach and share their experiences on various topics related to neuroimaging.

The Hot Topics program is designed for all physicians and residents who share our passion for neuroimaging. Having said that, we hope to introduce participants to the state-of-the-art knowledge in our field and enable them to use it to the benefit of their patients.

In this sixth edition, we will cover the most advanced concepts in brain tumors (adult and pediatric). The course will offer a mix of lectures and workshops, enabling a high level of interactive education. The workshops will allow participants to gain a direct and hands-on experience with teachers. We will also have specific classes on tumor evaluation in clinical trials according to the RANO and RAPNO criteria.

With our best regards,
Diego Pineda
