General remarks:

  1. Only under exceptional circumstances we will allow you to present a case that hasn’t been submitted in advance.
  2. Don’t include the patient’s name in the presentation!
  3. Present unsolved cases, don’t present your diagnostic successes!
  4. Please submit the slides (see below) WITHOUT the videofragments but INCLUDING the MR images!
  5. Upload your presentation on the morning of the session, before noon.
  6. In case the number of submissions is very high, we may be forced to discuss only a selection of the submissions, and eventually disappoint you. We only have one hour for each session. We hope you’ll still be happy to submit your difficult cases and join the sessions!

For both sessions, prepare your slides as follows:

Slide 1:

  • Title (question)
  • Your name
  • Your country

Slide 2:

  • History
  • Note: give sex and age; concentrate on what’s abnormal; use only three or four lines!

Slide 3:

  • Physical (including neurological) examination
  • Note: concentrate on what’s abnormal; use only three or four lines!

Slide 4:

  1. Additional investigations
  2. Note: concentrate on what’s abnormal; include only the most important laboratory results or other additional findings. Use only three or four lines!

Slide 5 – 7 (maximum 3 slides):

Session: movement disorders
Include the video fragments in your slides for your presentation during the meeting. However, submit your slides without videos, you won’t be able to e-mail them (see above, general remark 3). We will prepare the session based on the text on your slides, without having the movies.

Please carefully select those fragments that show what you want to show! Note: select SHORT fragments (preferably no longer than 1 minute, and absolutely no longer than 2 minutes). If considered important for your differential diagnosis: show normal aspects too. The latter may especially be the case in paroxysmal movement disorders.

Session: MRI pattern recognition
Show representative images. Show no more than three images on one slide. Please carefully select those images that show what you want to show! If considered important for your differential diagnosis: show normal aspects too. Eventually take additional prints for yourself, in case the experts or audience ask for details that are not visible on your slides. Note: it will not be possible to show full studies (on CDRom) during the expert session!

Final slide:
Your differential diagnosis or question
