C228 - Neuroimaging for the General Neurologist I: Brain

Event Time: Friday April 27, 2018 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Topic(s): General Neurology, Foundations in Clinical 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. Faculty will discuss imaging modalities such as MRI and CT, as well as approaches to reading images, common causes, and differential diagnoses. The course will cover neuroanatomy as it relates to pediatric and adult interpretation of CT and MRI of the brain, traumatic brain injuries, the aging process, and Tau. This program complements C240: Neuroimaging for the General Neurologist II: Brain, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to describe an organized approach to ordering and incorporating neuroimaging studies and sequences in the clinical practice of neurology. What neurologists need to know about MRI, CT, and its sequences, as well as the future horizons in neuroimaging, will be presented.
CME Credits: 2
Core Competencies: Medical Knowledge, Patient Care, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, Systems-Based Practice
