ESHNR Webinars

Since December 2018, the European Society of Head and Neck Radiology has been organising monthly online webinars featuring specialists from all over the world. The topics of these webinars are designed for radiologists and residents in radiology with an interest in head and neck imaging and focus on in-depth knowledge of the pertinent anatomy, pathology, clinical-radiologic and imaging-related issues in the field of head and neck and maxillo-facial radiology. The learning objectives are oriented on the Head and Neck chapters of the European Training Curriculum for Radiology.

Every month (exception August & December) there is one webinar organised free of charge for all interested persons, members and non-members. The webinar recordings are available for active members only. The duration of each webinar is 60 minutes including the presentation and a short Q&A session at the end.

The Dark Side of Paranasal Sinus Imaging: A Primer on Complicated Sinusitis for an On-Call Radiologist
Speaker: Sameer Raniga, Muscat/OM | Moderator: Jussi Hirvonen, Turku/FI

General description, scope and objectives of this webinar
The programme of this webinar will cover Complicated sinusitis is a multidisciplinary emergency involving ENT, ophthalmology, neurology, neurosurgery, infectious disease physicians, and radiologists. Most complicated sinusitis results from bacterial infections, less likely fungal in etiology, particularly in immunocompromised hosts. Complicated sinusitis can be categorized into three compartments 1. Orbital 2. Intracranial, and 3. Local- osteomyelitis and Subgaleal abscess. In the absence of rapid diagnosis and treatment, intracranial complications can be fatal, and intraorbital complications can cause permanent vision loss. The treatment options for these complications include medical, surgical, or combined. Imaging is frequently ordered in complicated sinusitis, often in the emergency hours. Imaging plays a very important role in triage and stratifying the treatment. Early imaging and aggressive management can limit morbidity and mortality. This webinar will be a primer for the general radiologist and radiology residents in the systematic interpretation of complicated Paranasal sinus imaging with a particular focus on the surgeon’s expectations.
It is aimed at head & neck radiologists, radiologist residents/juniors, students and people who are interested in the ESHNR diploma who want to improve their skills in:
– To understand the Imaging appropriateness in complicated sinusitis
– To review CT and MRI protocols and techniques in complicated sinusitis
– To describe Imaging findings and their relevance to the management

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to
– To understand the spectrum of orbital, intracranial, and local complications of acute rhinosinusitis
– To interpret imaging of complicated sinusitis using a “Checklist-based” approach
– To provide radiologically relevant discussion in Multidisciplinary meeting
