22nd Annual

Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium

& 7th Annual Karel G. Terbrugge Lectureship & Neurovascular Anatomy Workshop

September 22-24, 2022 – BMO Education & Conference Centre, Toronto, CA (Hybrid)

Co-Organized by the Department of Medical Imaging, University of Toronto and the Department of Diagnostic Imaging, Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids)

Welcome Address

We are happy to invite you to the 22nd Edition of our INR Symposium and the 7th Annual Terbrugge Lectureship which is planned to be held between September 22nd and 24th, 2022 (Thursday to Saturday) as a Hybrid Conference with a limited number of on-site/in-person spots available to allow for social distancing and the possibility to watch the presentations online (either at the time of presentation or in a belated fashion)

Similar to previous years, the first day will be dedicated to Case-based Neurovascular Anatomy Teaching with this year’s topics being divided into ECA Pathologies and Spinal Vascular Anatomy. In the INR Symposium we will cover new minimally invasive treatment avenues including the recently described “Stentrodes”, Stroke, Aneurysms and shunting lesions. We will again focus on conceptual insights as well as practical issues and will have multiple “Case-based” sessions.

We have invited “coast-to-coast” presentation from neurovascular centers across Canada and the US as well as international guest speakers from Japan, Australia, and Germany.

The Karel Terbrugge Lectureship this year will be awarded to Dr. René Chapot from Essen, Germany, who will speak about “how to survive in Interventional Neuroradiology”.

We hope the Symposium and its associated workshop will be of interest to a broad audience of Radiologists, Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Neuroradiologists, and Interventionalists.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Toronto in 2022 – either online or onsite!

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.


The 21st Interventional Neuroradiology Symposium & 6th Annual Karel G terBrugge Lectureship & Neurovascular Anatomy Workshop will be applied for accreditation as an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1), defined by the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). Previous similar programs have been approved by the Canadian Association of Radiologists (CAR) for a maximum of 19.5 credit hours.

Through an agreement between the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert Royal College MOC credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert Royal College MOC credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme
