2018 Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium
September 28-29, 2018
Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning

Welcome Address

Now in its 18th year, the Annual Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium will continue to integrate the conceptual and practical aspects of our field, other fields including basic sciences, Neurology, Neurosurgery and Imaging, and, most importantly the various schools of thought and practice across Canada. We are pleased to have contributions from experts from Canada, the US and Europe at our Symposium.

The symposium will be held in the state of the art Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning in Downtown Toronto across from the Hospital for Sick Children. Fittingly, one major focus will be Pediatric Intervention and we have experts from the Children’s Hospital in Boston (Darren Orbach) and Greater Ormond Street Hospital in London, UK (Drs Robertson and Rennie) speak.

Presentation topics will include Stroke – its prevention and its conceptual and organizational aspects, and Aneurysms – from concepts to challenges. Round table discussions and interactive audience participation will also be part of the program. In addition, the 3rd Annual Karel G. ter Brugge lectureship will be led by Prof. Gabriel Rinkel and will highlight concepts on development, growth and rupture of aneurysms.

With international experts like Matthew Gounis , Adnan Siddiqui, Demetrius Lopes, and Patrik Brouwer we hope that our program will once again attract a large number of participants to ensure lively discussions in a vibrant and collegial environment.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Toronto in September 2017

This program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, literature surveys/reviews, consultation with experts in the field, and the experience and needs perceived by members of the planning committee. As well, subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations was reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program.
