Description: Neuroimaging is a critical tool for the diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of neurologic conditions. Neurologists must be familiar with the indications and appropriate timing for obtaining imaging, but must also be able to quickly interpret imaging and apply the results to direct patient care. The topics covered in this course include an introductory overview of available imaging sequences for CT and MRI, an overview of imaging findings in anoxic brain injury, a discussion of imaging strategies for limbic encephalitis, as well as imaging findings in pregnancy. This program complements 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.
CME Credits: 2
