C81 - Common Spine Disorders I: Evaluation

Event Time: Monday April 24, 2017 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): Neuro-rehabilitation, Pain and Palliative Care
Director(s): J. D. Bartleson MD, FAAN
Description: Neurologists should play a primary role in evaluating patients with spine and/or limb pain because of our ability to detect the presence of spinal cord, spinal nerve, and cauda equina injury. Many neurologists are uncomfortable evaluating patients with spine and limb pain and interpreting spine imaging studies because of a lack of training and a paucity of instructional courses at neurology meetings. Faculty will describe important aspects of the history and neurological and musculoskeletal examination of patients with common spine disorders and cover the use of neurophysiologic testing in the diagnosis of spine and limb pain. Spine MRI is the most important diagnostic study in the evaluation of patients with spine disorders. An experienced spine radiologist will instruct attendees when to obtain and how to interpret spine MRI, emphasizing correlation of imaging findings with the patient's clinical presentation. This course will focus on common spine disorders, mostly due to spondylosis. This program complements C95: Common Spine Disorders II: Treatment, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants will be better able to diagnose common spine disorders using clinical skills. Participants will also learn when to obtain and how to interpret spine MRI.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care
