  • identify and explain common pathological changes and their position within the neuroradiology
  • identify indicated pathological changes in the vascular system and explain endovascular therapies
  • describe how contrast may contribute to the diagnosis in interventional and neuroimaging studies.
  • analyze and evaluate diagnostic imaging regarding medical issues
  • account for current research relevant to neuroradiology and choice of clinical application


The course focuses on various modalities and common pathology that can be made visible with diagnostic methods in neuroradiology and vascular diagnosis with a review of endovascular therapies. An important aspect is to identify medical conditions that require urgent action. Emphasis is placed on being able to explain pathological changes and their location with adequate medical terminology.
