International Neurosonology Workshop: Collaboration Between Neurologists and Radiologists

The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging organized an international workshop on Neurosonology on May 27, 2024, at Saleem Campus. In the worthy presence of Mr Haider Amin, Chairman BoG, Mr Hamza Amin, Vice Chairman BoG, Prof Dr Syed Amir Gilani, Rector, TUF, and Ms Zahida Maqbool, Registrar, TUF, the event brought together renowned experts in the field, where our esteemed guest speakers Prof Dr Med Fabienne Perren (MD, PhD), University of Geneva, President NSRG, World Federation of Neurosonology Switzerland shared her theoretical and practical experience with participants. The workshop was organized under the supervision of Dr. Syeda Khadija tul Sughra Murium, Associate Professor, Department of Radiology.

The workshop aimed to enhance knowledge and skills in neurosonology, promoting better patient care and using ultrasonography to evaluate cerebral circulation and the nervous system, enabling non-invasive assessment of blood flow in intracranial and extracranial vessels. Chief guest speaker, Prof Dr Med Fabienne Perren focused on exploring the innovative intersection of ultrasound technology and neuroscience, delving deep into the realm of brain imaging and vascular dynamics. Through the detailed presentation on cutting-edge research and clinical practices in Neurosonology, participants acquired hands-on experience with state-of-the-art neurosonography equipment under the guidance of international experts.

Prof Dr Syed Amir Gilani started his presentation with an overview of Ultrasound for Peripheral Nerves, evaluation of peripheral nerves, and sonography of peripheral nerves. His presentation covered a pictorial comparison of normal and compressed nerves, an insight into proximal nerve swelling, main groups of nerve entrapment, and the axial oblique plane.

The workshop attracted a diverse group of participants and students from the fields of radiology, neurology, sonography, and allied health sciences. The event featured a series of interactive sessions which provided a unique opportunity for networking, knowledge exchange, and fostering collaborations across disciplines and institutions. The discussion session allowed participants to delve deeper into specific topics and share their own experiences and challenges. As a part of the University's Go Green Campaign, Prof Dr Med Fabienne Perren planted a sapling in university’s ground.

The international workshop on Neurosonology was a resounding success, highlighting the importance of continuous learning and collaboration in advancing medical imaging and patient care. The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging is committed to hosting future events that contribute to the growth and development of the medical community.
