Irish Neuroscience Conferences

Beaumont Neuroscience 2013

At Beaumont Hospital, a weekly neuroscience conference is hosted each Friday morning, with presentation of clinical cases. Each month a Guest Speaker is invited to deliver a lecture to the conference. While these guest lectures are usually scheduled to take place on the first Friday of each month, occasionally they may be organised on an alternate Friday to facilitate short visits by international Speakers.

 "Advanced neuroimaging in pre-surgical planning: Beaumont’s experience".

Since the birth of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in the 90's and more recently of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), several clinical applications of these techniques have emerged, however the most widespread clinical trend is their use for pre-surgical planning. The goal of a neurosurgical procedure is to maximize the resection of the lesion (e.g. tumour, vascular malformation, epileptic foci) while minimizing permanent injury, which can be caused either by damaging the cortical areas immediately surrounding the lesion or the white matter tracks at the depths of the lesion. Advanced neuroimaging prior to surgery enables the neurosurgical team to plan the procedure and to envisage its complications, resulting in reduced surgical and recovery times and ultimately reduced morbidity. This talk will review the basic principles and the implementation of advanced neuroimaging in Beaumont, some of the clinical cases performed and plans for future development of these techniques.
