Neurosurgery: Neuro-oncology

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh will deliver the first batch of Neurosurgery webinars over the coming months. Neuro-oncology will be the theme. Dealing with brain tumours is a cornerstone of what we do as neurosurgeons and is a field that is burgeoning with innovation. We have experts from across the UK and wider afield delivering webinars on pertinent aspects of neuro-oncology.

We will cover the latest evidence in regard to how we should treat these often aggressive and life changing illnesses. The fundamental anatomy underlying neuro-oncology will be explored with a review of white matter tract anatomy and the surgical methods that might be employed to limit damage in eloquent areas. Pineal region tumours are a particularly challenging group of brain tumours from the varied pathological substrates, through the methods of investigation, and the diversity in operative management. A lot of what we learn as neurosurgeons is put the maximum test in dealing with lesions in this region and we will use it to illustrate many fundamental principles. After surgery for a brain tumour a patient’s journey is complex and we will be addressing the post-surgical oncological management of these patients. Finally, brain tumours provide a focus for a variety of imaging studies. In particular, we will be talking about the wide range of MRI modalities can be employed and the science behind them.

Please do join us for these lively and informative discussions! We encourage you put your questions to the experts and engage in what we hope will be very valuable educational activities.
