24th Annual

Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium

& 9th Annual Karel G. Terbrugge Lectureship & Neurovascular Anatomy Workshop

September 26-28, 2024 – BMO Education & Conference Centre, Toronto, CA (Hybrid)

Co-Organized by Faculty of the Divisions of Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery and Neurology of the University of Toronto

Welcome Address

We are glad to welcome you to the upcoming 24th Annual Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium and 9th Karel Terbrugge Lectureship that will be held as a HYBRID event at the BMO Education & Conference Centre within the Krembil Discovery Tower at the Toronto Western Hospital in Downtown Toronto, September 26th-28th, 2024.

Last year, we had over 400 participants both on site and virtually. Being one of the larger conferences in our field, we have constantly received excellent feedback on the quality of the lecturers and the topics we cover that span the endovascular world from its neurovascular anatomical foundations to current state-of-the-art techniques.

Similar to previous years, the first day will be dedicated to Case-based Neurovascular Anatomy Teaching with this year’s topics being the “Venous System”. The main topics of the subsequent days of the INR Symposium will cover new minimally invasive treatment avenues including extra-luminal procedures, endovascular neurooncology, and liquid biopsies. We will again focus on conceptual insights as well as practical issues of aneurysms, various AV shunts, and stroke, and will have multiple “Case-based” sessions.

The Karel Terbrugge Lectureship this year will be awarded to Dr. Sirintara Pongpech from Bangkok, Thailand, who will speak about “Women in Neurointervention – The Asian Perspective”.

We will have “coast-to-coast” invited speakers from neurovascular centers across Canada and the US as well as distinguished international guest speakers from Finland, Japan, Singapore, and Thailand.

Similar to previous years, we believe the Symposium and its associated workshop will be of interest to a broad audience of Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Neuroradiologists, and Interventionalists.

We look forward to welcoming you to Toronto in 2024 – either virtually or in-person!

For the organizers,

Timo Krings

Please note that this program was developed following a review of objective data including practice data, literature surveys/reviews, consultation with experts in the field, and the experience and needs perceived by members of the planning committee. As well, subjective data from the previous year’s evaluations was reviewed in detail to create a focus for this year’s program.
