Topic(s): General Neurology
Director(s): Jennifer McVige MD
Description: Neuroimaging is a critical tool to aid in the diagnosis and prognosis of neurologic conditions. Up-to-date information on these imaging advances is essential for neurologists who are continuously being scrutinized by payors who demand cost effective, but appropriate care of patients. The Faculty will discuss imaging modalities, approaches to reading images, common causes, and differential diagnoses. The course will cover neuroanatomy of brain MRI/CT as it relates to pediatric and adult interpretation of MR imaging of the brain, cognitive disorders, and suprasellar lesions. This program complements C92: Neuroimaging for the General Neurologist II: Brain, but covers independent topics. This program complements C92: Neuroimaging for the General Neurologist II: Brain, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to understand how to identify important anatomy when reading MRI/CT brain and spine, be familiar with ordering appropriate imaging modalities and sequences, and identify neurologic disorders on imaging sequences.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
