CBR 17: Head and Neck welcomes Dr. Deborah Shatzkes

Dra Deborah ShatzkesDr. Deborah Shatzkes, who will be one of the speakers at the Head and neck The XLVI Brazilian Congress of Radiology (CBR 17), which will take place from October 12 to 14 in Curitiba (PR), gave a brief interview about his coming to the event. “This will be the second time I will go to the College event; I participated in 2013 also in Curitiba. I take this opportunity to thank my dear colleague Luiz Otavio Coelho for the invitation, ”he said.

She is currently a professor of Radiology and Otorhinolaryngology at Hofstra-Northwell School of Medicine and Head of Head and Neck Imaging at Lenox Hill Hospital, in New York. In addition, he is vice president of the American Society of Head and Neck Radiology and will chair the program for the 2018 annual meeting in Savannah, Georgia. “I act as a Head and Neck publisher for the Radiology and I collaborate as a subspecialty leader at the annual RSNA congress, ”he specified.

At CBR 17, he will teach about sinonasal tumors, orbital disease patterns, sealar and parasellar masses, and head and neck vascular lesions - all review topics. There will also be two lectures in a less traditional format: “The first is a difficult or confusing diagnostic review called 'The Top 10 Misdiagnosis in Head and Neck'. The other will be an unfamiliar case session with my husband, Dr. Doug Phillips, who will also give talks at the event. We presented this session for the first time at JPR 2013. We showed each other completely unknown cases, and the audience could see how we worked with a differential diagnosis. Sometimes we were right and sometimes wrong, but it was a lot of fun for us and something different for the audience! ”.

Dr. Shatzkes considers himself lucky to have had the opportunity to speak in many countries in North America, South America, Asia, Australia and Europe. He hasn't taught in Africa yet, but hopes to get there soon: “I can't express the impact my international activities have had on my professional and personal life. The opportunity to interact with practicing radiologists in other countries enriched my understanding of medicine and global cultures and, as a bonus, provided me with lifelong friendships, ”he acknowledges.

In addition to the content led by Dr. Shatzkes, Dr. Rainer Haetinger, Head and Neck module coordinator at the event, highlights other sessions: “Because many radiologists work with emergency care services, a very important lesson will be on Urgency and emergence of the temporal bone, to be given by Dr. Eloisa Gebrim, as the role of the radiologist in these situations is essential in deciding between clinical and surgical treatment. It is necessary to study and know this subject well to gain experience, as there is not always opportunity to consult a radiologist specialized in this area in the short term. The classes on the anatomy of the face and base of the skull, which will be given by me, and the neck, under the responsibility of Dr. Ademar Paes Junior, also deserve attention, as the Faculties of Medicine generally teach very little about it. ” he warns.

Dr. Rainer also highlights the presence of Dr. Luiz Otávio Coelho, regional module organizer and professional dedicated to the subject Temporal bone: “He has a beautiful and complete collection of cases and will talk about inflammatory disease and postoperative evaluation of this. region". All Brazilian speakers participating in the module are chapter authors in the recently released CBR Series Head and Neck book.

Although Dr. Shatzkes's themes are more focused on revision, Dr. Rainer explains that there will be a balance between review and innovation. “With regard to innovation, for example, Dr. Regina Gomes will address the theme of Oral Cavity Injuries and the new TNM: what the radiologist should know, which will surely bring news to those present. Oncology has been developing exponentially in recent times and we all need to keep up to date in this area. In fact, Dr. Deborah Shatzkes and Dr. Douglas Phillips will address this issue amidst their lectures, ”he says.
