12th ILAE School for Neuropathology and Neuroimaging in Epilepsy (INES 2023)

UNICAMP in Campinas, Brazil

19 - 22 July 2023

ILAE Curriculum Learning Objectives addressed by this course

The international classification of epilepsies recognizes a large spectrum of substrates as potential predictors of disease progression and treatment response. Reliable neuropathological and neuroimaging work-up of epilepsy-associated brain lesions represents thus an important diagnostic value for the successful management of patients with focal epilepsy. The 12th ILAE School for Neuropathology and Neuroimaging in Epilepsy will specifically address the issue to enable participants to better recognize and classify various brain lesions. We will offer an integrated approach to combine neuropathology and neuroimaging skills and knowledge. The workshop has been held previously in Germany, Brazil, the USA, and China with a focus on histopathology and the endorsement of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE). Advanced hands-on histopathology training will still be offered in small groups led by distinguished tutors but also includes hands-on skills on reformatting brain MR images. We will offer all participants use cases to further develop their skills and help integrating knowledge of histology and imaging related to the diagnosis and treatment of human focal epilepsies.
