Obligatoriske forudsætningerDoctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM); at least two years of companion animal practice work experience; and certified Danish Fagdyrlæge. *If fagdyrlæge-edducation from another country, please provide documentation of education and recertification.
Having completed the course, the student should be able to:

. Identify neurological patients suitable for advanced neurological diagnostic procedures
. Collect and interpret CSF samples
. Recognize the indication for serological test and interpretation of these
. Identify appropriate image modality and have knowledge of common diagnostic imaging hallmarks of the neurological patient.
. Understand the interpretation of CT, MRI
. Evaluate pros and cons for CT and MRI
A combination of theoretical lectures, demonstrations, hands-on practice and case-based practice.
The purpose of this course is to further develop the diagnostic skills of the participant when approaching the more complicated neurological patient. The participant should be able to combine knowledge from paraclinical disciplines as diagnostics imaging, cytology and haematological (including serology) with the clinical findings at an advanced level. A wet-lab practice of cerebrospinal fluid tap and interpretation will be included. Conventional diagnostic imaging as well as advanced image modalities such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - indication, interpretation and therapeutic consequences. is addressed.
Cases of neurological patients and clinical work-up will be used to demonstrate the above-described disciplines.
Recommended literature list will be posted 1 month prior to course start.
