Collaborative Pediatric Neuroradiology Symposium

10:00 am–6:00 pm
UChicago Center in Delhi

Oct.

The Collaborative Pediatric Neuroradiology Symposium is a joint effort by pediatric neuroradiologists from the University of Chicago Department of Radiology and a few select academic neuroradiologists locally in India.  The purpose of the event is to showcase a variety of interesting topics in the field, ranging from an early glimpse at the central nervous system with fetal imaging, to congenital anomalies of the brain and spine, to acquired abnormalities in the head and neck.  This collaborative event will promote use of advanced imaging techniques, include interactive case-based sessions, as well as provide an overview on the exciting field of use of simulation in radiology especially in the context of pediatric contrast reaction management training.

Dr. Carina W. Yang is the Principal Investigator on the project.  She is an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Chicago, serving as the Director of Pediatric Neuroradiology.  She has published over 15 peer-reviewed primary journal articles in the field. As an invited speaker, she has previously presented on pediatric neuroradiology topics during invited lectures, including completing visiting professorships in Newfoundland, Canada; Gwalior, India; and most recently Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Dr. Gregory Katzman is the co-investigator for this project. He is Professor and Vice Chair of Operations of the Department of Radiology. He also serves as the Interim Chief Quality Officer at the University of Chicago Medicine.  He has published over 40 primary journal articles and reviews and 70 chapters in 17 textbooks.  As an invited speaker, he has presented 83 invited lectures on three different continents, including visiting professorships in Lebanon as well as Brazil.

Dr. Gaurav Goel is the local organizer for this event.  He is the Associate Director and Head of Neurointervention Surgery at the Institute of Neurosciences, Medanta Hospital in Gurgaon, India. He is certified in neuroradiology, and completed additional fellowship training in Neurointerventional Radiology at McGill University in Canada.
