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 ESHNR members. Non-members can also attend three webinars free of charge. The duration of each webinar is approximately 60 minutes including the presentation and a short Q&A session at the end.
