The ILAE British Branch Epilepsy Neuroimaging Course was successfully launched in March 2017 and is now in its third year. Open to all healthcare professionals and affiliates and MSc/PhD students, the 3-day course aims to provide both an overview and a solid foundation in state-of-the-art MRI and PET scanning in epilepsy. 

The course will:

  • Consist of lectures and small-group tutorials given by experienced MRI- and PET-clinicians / researchers
  • Cover aspects of structural and functional MRI acquisition and analysis
  • Train participants on real patients’ data in hands-on laboratory exercises.

On completion of the course, the participants will be able to:

  • Employ MRI and PET to influence the clinical management of patients with epilepsy
  • Select appropriate MRI sequences, and distinguish clinical and MR features of different etiologies
  • Understand the role of advanced MRI and PET-MR acquisition and post-processing analysis methods.


Accommodation is not included in the registration fee. However, rooms have been reserved for delegates for two nights at The Ethorpe Hotel, which is located in the centre of Gerrards Cross.

Rooms are available as an additional extra when booking, on a first come, first served basis. Payment will be required by the hotel upon checkout.
