Dear Colleagues

One of the mandates of the Radiological Society of South Africa (RSSA) is to bring world leaders in imaging to South Africa. Continuing this tradition, and the recent successful RSSA/SASNI/ESNR Spine Imaging Course in Sandton, we are delighted to welcome you to another joint meeting of the RSSA’s Neuroradiology subgroup, the South African Society of Neuro Imaging (SASNI), and the European Society of Neuroradiology (ESNR).

Brain Imaging 2024 will be a combination of didactic lectures and case-based workshops on a wide range of topics including anatomy, multiple sclerosis, dementia, glioma imaging, infection, cranial nerves etc, and dedicated teaching on stroke imaging and management.

The imaging of dementia has become highly topical following the FDA approval of drugs for Alzheimer's disease. Paediatric Neuroradiology and Advanced Imaging techniques such as CEST (chemical exchange saturation transfer) are included in the program.

There will be quiz cases! We invite abstracts for poster presentations.

This two-and-a-half-day update will be of great value to registrars in training, general radiologists, and all those, including other subspecialists, who may find themselves involved in reporting neuro cases in our environment. We anticipate a diverse audience, including radiologists, radiographers, and neurologists.

The faculty comprises distinguished European Neuroradiologists renowned for their teaching and South African Neuroradiologists, including ESNR Neuroradiology Diplomates (EDiNR).

The course will take place at The Lord Charles Hotel, Somerset West: conveniently situated 20 minutes along the N2 from the Cape Town International Airport. (Against the traffic!)

We invite colleagues from across the country to register early to secure a place for this Spring gathering in the Cape, an ideal opportunity to reconnect and socialise.

We acknowledge the support of our sponsor, Siemens, whose commitment to Radiology teaching and training is appreciated and indispensable.

Thank you very much.
