This with all groups of different professionals, from residents, the most experienced, fellows and fellow specialists who take advantage of these courses to refresh their knowledge. In this sense, the course was designed in such a way as to cover some themes of Neuroradiology during the initial lectures, later complemented in the workshops with a case-by-case evaluation.
