Radiology plays an integral role in formulating management decisions for treating patients with complex ENT pathologies. With an array of specialised and advanced imaging techniques, radiologists are in a privileged position to advise ENT surgeons on a suggested surgical approach in the management of such pathologies. A sound understanding of ENT radiology is also required in the FRCS (ORL-HNS) examination.

This one-day course is intended to educate candidates appearing for the FRCS (ORL-HNS) Part 2 examination, as well as those nearing the end of their training and applying for a Consultant job, about the intricacies and complexities of ENT radiology. Through a series of mock vivas, the course will provide delegates with the opportunity to interpret imaging to the level expected in the exam as well as to the standard required from a newly appointed ENT consultant.

The day will comprise of viva stations on Otology (including lateral skull base), Paediatric ENT, Head and Neck, and Rhinology (including anterior skull base). Delegates will be expected to interpret a variety of imaging and answer questions on the management of a number of case-based scenarios. A wider discussion of each case will also take place. The course will consolidate the existing knowledge of the candidates and impart them with new information.

Suitable for an individual:

  • Preparing for the FRCS (ORL-HNS) Part 2 examination.
  • Awaiting a Consultant job in ENT.
  • Who is a newly appointed Consultant in ENT.
