Diagnostic Imaging in Paediatrics

Pediatric Radiology: Fetal and neonatal imaging | II Internacionals Lectures


Places available


We are pleased to invite you to the II International Pediatric Radiology Conference at the Sant Joan de Déu Barcelona Children's Hospital.

In this second edition, the program aims to integrate, from the point of view of the image, multidisciplinary assessment in the neonatal fetal transition. The conference will focus on perinatal neuroimaging.

We are fortunate to have renowned international teachers and a selection of local teachers recognized for their teaching and research skills.

A first block will focus on the introduction to the assessment of the fetal central nervous system (CNS) and brain maturation. In the second block we will discuss the role of neuroimaging as a biomarker in perinatal CNS pathology. In the third block we will approach the current approach to precision diagnosis in CNS perinatal pathology based on the neuroimaging findings. The last day will consist of an exciting update block in fetal medicine.

We hope you can enjoy and make the most of the academic program that we have prepared

Best regards!

Ignasi Barber, Mónica Rebollo and Xavier Lucaya.
