Overview

Neuro-oncology is a rapidly evolving multi-disciplinary field, which involves the medical, surgical and radiation management of adult and pediatric patients with primary and metastatic brain and spinal cord tumors. In addition, modern molecular neuropathology and neuroradiology concepts are essential for accurate diagnosis and classification. This five-day CME course, the Asia-Pacific Neuro-Oncology CME Conference, is designed to provide an international audience with a comprehensive review of the diagnosis and management of adult and pediatric patients with primary and metastatic brain and spinal cord tumors and neurologic complications of cancer.
